          Kanavis, now thats a name from the past. That been said Kanavis had HIGH expectations. High, get it.

            William Joseph who will probably be followed by fellow DT Marvin Austin.

                Dave Brown, Tyrone Wheatly and Ron Dayne are names I remember. Sorry can't click the bleacherreport link (doesn't work on my computer).

                  In my lifetime, without a doubt it's No Gain Dayne.

                    Dave Brown, yeah... Guy played with a lot of heart, but just wasn't that good. I hear he's a moderately successful corporate executive in the investment industry now though, and in fact he was brought in to Lehman Brothers in the wake of their colossal subprime disaster to try and help clean things up...

                    Honorable mention: Matt Dodge. Yeah he was a 7th rounder, but we've had 7th rounders play well enough to at least be rotational fairly quickly, like Jacquian Williams and Markus Kuhn. Dodge was just a colossal failure, and not worth any draft pick at all...

                    I'm Commander Shepard, and this is my favorite team in the NFL.

                      @ Wisconsin, he was able to really follow his blockers kind of pin ball off of them. Don't know why he failed with the Giants..Couldn't be this Ron Dayne could it?

                          Dave Brown was probably the BIGGEST GIANTS DRAFT BUST I can remember. Dayne on the other hand was a Bust but IMOVHO he was NEVER UTILIZED in the correct way. Yes Ron Dayne was a BIG MAN and he looked like the type of running back that could bulldoze his way to open day light, but to the contrary he wasn't that type of Back. Fassel wanted Dayne to get the tough yards the 3rd and 1 first down against a Goal Line Defense the 1/2 yard Touchdown and every defense knew he was getting the ball. Yes Dayne looked like he could do that but he didn't have the Strength to do that. He was a Big Man with not so big strength. If you really look at his college film he was a finesse runner in a Jerome Bettis body. For his size he was FAST and he had great reflexes. In normal Running Back situations you know when there is a hole to run through, he would hit the hole raise his head and make 1 to 2 guys miss and he woud be gone. He wasn't and never could be the BRUISING BACK The Giants and Fasell thought he could be. After leaving The Giants and having his body beat to **** and basically was done because he took the hits (ALOT OF THEM) he still managed to have a pretty descent (NOT GREAT DESCENT) couple of years in Oakland

                              No way -- Dayne's 1st season wasn't that bad. At least he had SOME production.

                              I'd say Cedric Jones -- just down right horrible. Or a WR in the '90s named Thomas Lewis. Or Jarrod Bunch. Talk about absolutely nothing for 1st round picks.
