Who was the biggest Raider draft bust ever?


I want to hear from you, Raider Nation!

The FanSided.com Sports Network is putting together a March Madness style tourney that will pit the worst busts in the history of the NFL against one another to decide the worst pick EVER!

Let’s exorcise some past demons by throwing a couple worthless picks under the bus as Tom Cable and Al Davis prepare for an important 2009 draft.

    Being a lifelong Raider fan I have so many to choose from Willie Jones – 1979, Ted Watts & Curt Marsh-1981 who were both selected ahead of Hall of Famer Howie Long, Bob Buczkowski – 1986, John Clay – 1987, Todd Marinovich – 1991, Patrick Bates-1993, Rickey Dudley-1996, Derrick Gibson-2001 and Micheal Huff-2006. I have to say Ted Watts & Curt Marsh.
