Each team in the NFL has had their share of draft blunders. The Denver Broncos are no different, despite their late-round draft success. With some success comes failure at times, and the Broncos have certainly drafted a few players who have not lived up to expectations. Here are five examples.
A player who was a star for the Georgia Bulldogs, George Foster never really emerged in the league. While he was part of a line that allowed very few sacks, he ended up being a player who just burned out in the spotlight.
The Broncos had just won the franchise's first Super Bowl and were looking for talent in the later part of the first round. They struck out with Marcus Nash, a wideout from Tennessee, who only played 10 games during his two years with the Broncos before being traded.
A player who was known for his horrendous play in the cornerback position, the Broncos took a big gamble on him in the 2001 draft, but it never worked out. They gave him another shot in 2006, but it was a lost cause.
Maurice Clarett had so much controversy surrounding him before he was even drafted by the Broncos, most fans wonder why he was drafted in the first place. He was signed to a contract, but was released one month later after injuries and a horrid training camp. He never even played a snap in preseason.
Arguably the Broncos' worst draft pick in franchise history, Ted Gregory came with huge red flags with steroid use and knee injuries. He was smaller than he led people to believe, and his knee injury caught up to him. He was traded to the New Orleans Saints, and his career ended while sacking John Elway.
