Spectacular Draft Busts- Monday: Roddy White

In my new series, this week I will chronicle guys who I've deemed Spectacular NFL Draft Busts. Today's bust is Rowdy Roddy White.

His Qualifications

Roddy was picked with the 27th overall pick in the 2005 NFL draft, after finishing up a fine college career at UAB in the months leading up to the draft. White wowed the scouts with his 4.4 40 time and impressive hands in positional drills.

Roddy has yet to do squat in his NFL career, and has the Atlanta Falcons still looking for a #1 reciever since drafting him. Last year he recorded 30 receptions for 500 yards, and tied me in touchdown receptions (none, nada, zip, zilch, zero!). But I guess it's all Vick's fault!

Alternate Options

The Falcons would have been much better off had they selected Reggie Brown, who was picked just a few picks later at 35th over all. Reggie scored 8 touchdowns last season, Im sure they wish they'd kept him in Georgia.

I have a slight feeling he isn't the last reciever we'll see on Spectacular Bust Week.
