    I guess it's like @meekmode said, it's how you define bust. Injuries are part of the game, sh*tty luck, unfortunate circumstances whatever. For me a bust is a player that doesn't play up to the draft position or can't stick it out in the league. Sucks performance wise.
    A career ending injury doesn't make them a bust although a bunch of nagging injuries that stop them from seeing their full potential could be considered a bust.

    He definitely worded what I was saying better.
    As you said here, "a player that doesn't play up to the draft position". To me, Jake Locker certainly fits in this category. We got to see glimpses of possibility when he was healthy, but he couldn't stay healthy. A bust, no other way to call it.

    I'd say Locker was definitely a bust, especially since he retired/quit so soon.

    You contradicted your earlier post.

    A bust is a bust whether it's injury or talent.

    Definitely a bust, but not just because of injuries. I have no clue what everyone else saw. Even when fully healthy, he was a bust. Had a flash here and there, yes, but so did VY, RGIII, and multiple others. Too inaccurate. Sucks he suffered so many injuries, but he never would of lived up to his draft position.
