So who was the Bengals biggest bust?

Recommended Posts

This time of year always brings up famous Bengal busts. Who is our biggest? I wouldn't put Pollack in there because he wasn't a top ten. This is a tough question.
#4. Dan Wilkinson - sucked for us, but did have an ok career.
#3. Ki-Jana Carter - Mr. Glass was always hurt, and never was healthy and went on to suck for two other teams
#2. David Klingler - Yuck. Just horrible with the dinks and dunk passes.
#1- Akili Smith - Not just the fact that he sucked, but the fact that they passed on the Saints entire draft makes him the biggest bust.


On a side note. Would it be worse to be Scott Norwood around Superbowl time or Ryan Leaf at draft time?

I wouldn't say Wilkinson sucked for us, he just didn't play up to the level of where he was drafted. He had pretty good sack numbers for a DT.

Klinger and Smith were both bigger busts.

Achilles Smith! Klinger's throwing motion was ruined by Kenny A, well, per a article a while back and I believe him. KaJunka was an injury so you have to cut him some slack and Big Duddy lasted a long time in this league so you can't say it is him.

Klingler was the worst by far. Drafting him when we had a perfectly good Boomer. That is what pissed Boomer off in the 1st place and alienated him. Thats what gave him the "out" or a reason to want out.

A. Smith was bad ...yes but he was a pick of need, in needing a QB because we had none.

Klingler was a STUPID pick that just pissed off Boomer.
Busting on a QB ppick sets you back 3 to 5 years. Klingler set us back 4-7 years with Boomer still here a couple years then gone.
Prove me wrong

Which of these picks did something?

Big Daddy didn't suck for the Bengals he made pro bowl alternate once or maybe twice as a bengal. Just didn't live completely up to the hype.

Without a doubt it's Akili Smith.
