JaMarcus Russell No. 1 overall, Oakland Raiders, 2007
Despite possessing the superb arm strength and prototypical size of a budding NFL superstar, JaMarcus Russell fizzled in Oakland after three seasons, over which the LSU product threw for 23 interceptions and only 18 touchdowns. After Russell was reported to have shown up to training camp in March 2010 weighing close to 300 pounds, the Raiders traded for veteran QB Jason Campbell, presumably ending Russell's tumultuous run in the Bay Area. He joins a woeful group of high-draft pick gunslingers who never turned potential into production. (AP Photo/Tony Avelar)
