1989. The worst of the bunch?
98 was pretty awful.

Set the chargers back a bit.

Not even close. Mandarich at least played 8 years in the league. See Charles Rogers and Ryan Leaf.
Only 6 RBs

In 40 years. Two of the six turned out to be stars. Dorset and Faulk.
wow

the rams have had 3 picks with the second pick in the draft in the last ten years and I think you can call all three busts - Robinson, Smith and Long. Long had the best career of the three, but was not a consistent wrecking ball that you would expect as a #2 overall DE.
Jets have 2 with Johnny "Lame" Jones and Blair Thomas

The team around him absolutely sucked. He was like the one good thing on it.

fair enough. in hindsight, I'm sure they would have taken Ryan or Flacco as they were in QB purgatory for 10 years.
A lot of very good QBs picked 2nd  
Vanzetti : 1/5/2018 5:09 pm : link
YA Tittle, Norm Snead, John Brodie, Joe Namath, Bert Jones, Donovan McNabb, Marcus Mariota

But no all-time greats, except maybe Wentz if he continues along his path.
Left out Sid Luckman  
Vanzetti : 1/5/2018 5:11 pm : link
Definitely an all-time great

Roman Gabriel and Archie Manning were also #2 picks
Some good  
CV36 : 1/5/2018 8:27 pm : link
Linebackers and DEs with the 2nd pick

No doubt there are further errors in that list.
In the past 15 drafts...  
Milton : 1/6/2018 3:26 am : link
Only three times was the 2nd pick a defensive player, and yet defensive players accounted for more than half of the Pro Bowl credits over the same span.
Of course Dallas took Randy White

With the Giants pick.
