    Recycled black trash - Flowers is awful and the Redskins who have previous experience with him squander a late round pick on an unknown entity to get an all time bust. Caste logic at it's finest.

    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Washington acquired T Ereck Flowers and a late-round draft pick from the Dolphins for a late-round pick.

    The teams reportedly traded day three draft picks. The Dolphins jettison Flowers -- a complete bust since being drafted as a first rounder in 2015 -- a year after signing him to a three-year, $30 million deal, with nearly $20 million guaranteed. The trade creates about $8 million in cap room for Miami. Flowers' conditioning was a major issue for the Dolphins early last season, and the veteran spent time on the COVID-19 list. After playing 16 games in the 2019 season in Washington, Flowers will rejoin a solid offensive line a year after allowing five sacks and being graded by Pro Football Focus as the league's 100th best offensive lineman.

    What's most appalling is that even Weenieworld calls Flowers "a complete bust since being drafted" yet he was still signed to a 3 year $30 million contract with $20 million guaranteed after his rookie deal expired. That's stupidity beyond comprehension even for the Caste NFL.

    He's the biggest all time bust.

    After what happened to Dan Orlovsky for questioning Fields' work ethic, Black QBs are all now officially super-smart and extremely hardworking and it's "racist" to not follow the party line.

    Never allowed to question the insanity of the status quo.

    "Generational" and "kids" are the cuck draft terminology that are most annoying to me now.

    Every year there seem to be several once in a generation players. Somehow they all seem to be black.

    It's time to play Predict-A-Bust (tm). What could be more recent than a bust that hasn't happened.

    In this episode we look at Patriots 3nd round draft pick and future bust DE Ronnie Perkins. What a horrible pick!

    He's small, not particularly fast or athletic. He doesn't fit into the 4-3 the Patriots play and he's not athletic enough to play linebacker.

    His 20 yard short shuttle was terrible and he wouldn't even do the 3 cone, likely because he would have done poorly. The 3 cone is predictive of success as an edge rusher. His Sackseer rating was bad.

    Perkins has bust written all over him.

    I'd agree. Dat upside though, he's black and from Oklahoma. Instant points In the eyes of NFL Brass and DWFs.

    Perkins has received high praise from most mainstream pundits. But not all of them.

    Foootball Outsiders ranks him very low as a pass rushing prospect in their Sackseer ratings.

    I feel safe calling this guy a bust. He's made of glass, not a physical player at all - a cherry picking type safety.

    Free agent Malik Hooker expects to sign a one-year deal before training camp.
    Hooker has visited with the Steelers, Dolphins, and Cowboys. He plans to have more conversations with teams in the coming weeks. Hooker is nine months removed from Achilles surgery and said he feels “capable” of playing right now. The oft-injured 25-year-old looks destined to play 2021 on a prove-it contract.

    Amazing even for the NFL that this all-time bust was still in the league. There may never have been a bigger bust than White. Who can forget the way his combination of size, speed and athleticism was drooled over back in '15:

    49ers released WR Kevin White.
    The No. 7 overall pick in the 2015 draft, White is now 29 years old and appeared in just three games, seeing a total of nine snaps, for San Francisco last season. It might be time for White to consider a new career path.

    Man forgot about that Bum. All Time Bust that conveniently doesn't get the criticism he deserves.

    Just sweep him under the rug and forget about him. Then repeat the same mistake again with another colored fella.

    My predict-a-bust pick is Teven Jenkins of the Bears. He's already shown himself to be injury prone. A lot of Dolphin DWF's were pissed when we took Eichenberg instead of him. Another case of an inferior player getting drafted above superior players simply because of the color of his skin.

    Another pick of mine and this one is a dark horse pick, but that's Jamarr Chase of the Bengals. Reports from camp is that he's been less than impressive. Maybe he'll turn out to be a decent player or even a star but looks like a player who could just as easily bust.

    Yes, the Bears are stupid. Jenkins is injury prone and is strictly a right tackle. He's not good against the pass.

    The Bears gave up a third round pick, 83, to move up to take Jenkins. They could have taken Liam Eichenberg, Walker Little or Sam Cosmi instead of Jenkins, All three are better prospects than Jenkins.

    If they had stayed at 52 and kept their 3rd round pick, they could have taken Dillon Radunz or Brady Christensen, both of whom are also better prospects than Jenkins.

    I would have taken Radunz at 52 and IOL Quinn Meinerz at 83.

    Jamin Davis is my selection for predict-a-bust. Even by the racist standards of the NFL scouting industry, there's no way this guy should've sniffed the first round. He has the physical tools to succeed, yes, but he only has 11 career starts to his name, and it shows. He simply doesn't have the instincts to succeed at the middle linebacker position, at least right away. There's a reason he was projected as barely draftable until a few weeks before the draft when he started inexplicably climbing everyone's big boards. He really should've returned to Kentucky for another year and gained more experience before making an NFL run. I think he'll bomb out in spectacular fashion in Washington.

    Ok guys, the title of this thread is Recent Busts, not Possible Future Busts. For some reason it's turned into one predicting busts when it had over 400 posts about actual busts.

    Stay on topic, and if there isn't an existing thread for the topic you want to discuss, then start one.
