When looking at the biggest draft mistakes of the 2000s, there comes a line of demarcation that starts around 2007 - there are certain players who just don't get it right away in the NFL, and they should be given time as such. That's why 2007 is our cutoff point for draft year, though there are players we suspect will be on this list very soon (hello, Darrius Heyward-Bey(notes)) However, we'll stay away from capping on guys with repeated injuries - it's less the fault of some players that they didn't make it; not much to do if you can't get on the field. But as for the busts - where are they now? How many of these guys are still in the NFL, and how many have seen their dreams go up in smoke?
