Default Re: How high were you on Ryan Leaf pre-NFL?

Ryan Leaf was the worst hands down. I always thought Boz was close as far as busts go.

But Leaf was too combative, unpredictable... He just seemed like the pressure was too much for him.. Plus the big thing going into that draft I remember was which one (Peyton or Ryan) would be the best QB since Dan Marino blah blah blah... The way Peyton grew and Leaf failed just provided a stark contrast and that made it even more obvious that Leaf wasnt prepared to play with the big boys..

with me I never thought he'd be a complete bust, I saw him being on Peyton's shadow and having just an "OK" career because yes he had the cannon arm, the swagger.. but when it comes to who was more mature? who was the kid and who was the man? it's Peyton..
Leaf was a kid.. he didn't know how to handle the fame..

watch the vid

NFL TOP 10 busts - Ryan Leaf
I dont think anyone saw this kid as a bust. And the biggest difference between Peyton and Leaf at the time was Peyton's pedigree. There werent too many signs of him being that big of a disappointment and it was never made public he had character issues if I remember correctly outside of typical college kid immaturity.

Bosworth to me was not that big of bust because he was more hype than talent and ability. He was a stiff in college.

Mandarich was suppose to be hall of fame bound total freak of nature I was surprised by him being a bust although his technique wasnt that great but man he was mean and aggressive.

That's no opinion.

Yeah, if they hadn't drafted Manning, then the Colts would probably be coming off of 12 seasons of bad to terrible seasons with the occasional decent season thrown in.

Peyton Manning is arguably the best QB ever as far as accuracy and toughness to game plan for. Ryan Leaf is arguably the biggest bust in NFL history.

1/15, 4 yards, 5 turnovers.
