Toss up. To be considered a huge bust you first have to be considered a lock for greatness. That's why I'm hesitant to put Sanchez or Tebow because honestly, did we truly believe those guys would be world beaters? Tebow was getting criticized well before draft day and I think everyone just assumed Sanchez would have a respectable career. Jmo of course.

Good list.. I'd add David Klinger somewhere on your list. Probably take out Couch for Klinger.

call me insane but I think Gabbert can be a solid NOT GREAT Qb
Jacksonville has no line outside of Eugene Monroe, Hes going on his 3rd Qb coach and OC in 3 years I still think he can be a soild starting qb in the NFL
Goal in life is to save America from Obamacare
did anyone think Troy Smith was going to be a good nfl qb
Undecided on the rest but Moronivich makes the top 10 as well.

Todd Marinovich is a top 10 candidate all day.
Not sure you can blame Carr....it's hard to succeed when you're on your back after every single play. I have never seen an OL as atrocious as that early 2000s Houston one.

Completely agree. I have him as an honorable mention but no way he's top 10 or maybe not even top 20. That kid was raped of the career he should have had by horrible management, coaching and talent around him.

A name no one has mentioned, but the Niners took Jim Druckenmiller in the first round and I'm not sure he got a total of 10 NFL starts in his career. He was a late 1st round pick, but I don't see many first round QBs who not only don't look good, but don't even get to start for a partial season at any point in their career.
It was a perfect storm for him....there were no real super successful QBs in that draft and Houston was looking for a Franchise QB. Along comes David Carr, a clean-looking guy with good morals (his family are borderline bible-thumpers) and you have a sad situation. I hope his little brother (currently at Fresno State) ends up on a team with a good OL.
Coming out of college, how do you rank Carr, Vick, Newton and V.Young as athletes?
I'd say newton, Carr, Vick then young.
Newton has him on size but Carr had the legs and the arm to be up there. Him going to the texans when he did was just a complete disaster for him, or any QB for that matter.
I'd agree with you. Carr was one hell of a QB....can't believe he wasn't even invited to the Heisman ceremony that year. He had an awkward release point, though. Built like a damn linebacker. His little brother is a bit of a different prospect. Lighter and a bit quicker on his feet.
Where's his younger brother at?
Fresno State. Did pretty well this past year.
Not as train-wreck-esque as some others.
Damn I had no idea, but in my defense Fresno is rarely on in my area. Can count on two hands how many games I've seen of theirs.
He did pretty well but his line isn't that great and he needs more pocket presence. He's like Jay Cutler without the ego. Great arm but he gets sloppy and makes stupid throws when pressured.
You guys gave Nebraska alot of problems in 2011. I was really impressed with Carr, how many years does he have left?
Assuming he was redshirted in 09 he's got one year left.
