NFL Draft, Boom or Bust?

NFL Draft, Boom or Bust?
S/R Staff
class="post-date-wrap left relative post-date-mob">

With the NFL draft quickly approaching, many teams look to bolster their rosters in the early rounds, and of course avoid the dreaded bust. Hindsight obviously is a 20/ 20 proposition and many fans like to point to particular players who haven’t lived up to expectations by labeling them a “Bust”. I have noticed that the term seems to be subjective depending on who you ask. If you have ever had this conversation, you will notice a wide range of responses and opinions on what makes a player a bust. My goal is simple; let’s create criteria for what qualities make a player a bust. Please respond to the following questions and I will try to come up with a consensus later in the week.

Does the round in which a player is drafted in make any difference? If so, which round(s) does being a bust begin and end?

Do different positions have different levels of expectations?

Do pro bowl appearances have an impact?

Do injuries play a role?

Some players are considered “late bloomers” – does lack of immediate impact or playing time make any difference?

How many years in the league does a player have to determine whether or not they are a bust?

What other factors help define if a player is a bust?
