Worst 1st Round Pick by the Saints Ever


In recent memory, it has to be Johnathan Sullivan, no doubt. He was the 6th pick in the 1st round of the 2003 NFL Draft by the Saints, and was a HUGE bust by all accounts. Can you guys think of a worse 1st round pick by the Saints? Especially with players who the Saints could have gotten instead: Terrell Suggs, Troy Polamalu, Kevin Williams, Marcus Trufant, etc.

This. We picked a KICKER/PUNTER at no. 11 OVERALL.

He made 4 field goals in his entire career...

I can definitely see Russell Erxleben challenging for the top spot, although Sullivan was drafted higher in the 1st round.

We drafted a kicker at #11, five spots higher argument doesn't really work.

Erxleben was no doubt the worst pick. Sullivan was a huge bust but not necessarily the equal worst pick cause the pick made sense at least.

Sullivan made sense at the time and did SOMETHING.

Erxleban was a fricking kicker. And he was an unmitigated disaster. Did nothing.

He challenges every year for the worst 1st Rounder EVER.

Lol Fun Bunch, what exactly did Sullivan do? As I recall, he didn't even have a sack in his career? Lol, at least Erxleben scored a handful of field goals for the Saints, that's more than Sullivan ever did!

very true.

I guess what pissed me off was the most was that we had two first round picks the year we traded up to get Sullivan.

I think we had #17 and #18 and moved up to #6 to take him

At least Erxleben made a contribution to the team for a few years.

Lindsay Scott and Larry Burton were wide receivers who literally could not catch a fricking football.
