    Here's a question; who was the biggest Titans WR bust?

    So many choices but I think Justin Hunter, he talked so much but gave nothing.

    Taylor Thompson. I know he was drafted as TE, but I mean, the Titans DRAFTED a guy in the 4th round to play a position he never played and that move didn't even come close to paying off.

    In reality, he may even be the argument for why a 4th round FB pick really isn't a stretch at all, clearly 4th round picks have pretty much no value.

    Oddly enough, as I mentioned Lavelle Hawkins was a 4th round pick but was expected to fix the WR woes at the time. Very foolish thinking, including myself, on that one.

    EDIT: My bad, Thompson was a quality **5th** rd pick, not terrible 4th round pick. (that's sarcasm)

    I was hyped on Tyrone Calico and Hunter, both 2nd round picks, fast 4.4 40 guys with size but bust! Gawd, I just hope Corey Davis produces.

    I can agree with both those picks but at least Calico can blame his body for failing him with injuries, Hunter has no excuse.

    I think the short list of WR busts would mostly be:
    Britt
    Hunter
    DGB
    Wright
    maybe Kevin Dyson

    All due to the investment of a 1st/2nd RD pick although the long list of failed 3rd rounders could be considered.

    Ugh, there's just so many. But if I had to pick one, I'd go with DGB solely because there was raw potential to be an absolute beast, Megatron type. Unfortunately his head was full of rocks.

    Yeah, our luck with 2nd round WRs...sad LMAO! DGB does have rocks for brains but if we had a better coaching staff at the time would things be different? IDK. But towards the end of his rookie year with us DGB was looking alright. Robiskie/Mularkey would not even know how to develop Aaron Rodgers, Antonio Brown, DeAndre Hopkins and Todd Gurley if they had them.

    I never liked DGB, never got my hopes up.

    The right answer to the question is Calico or some other guy long before DGB.

    I learned a while back about guys like DGB.
