In terms of Buc draft busts, where does Booger rank?

Well Booger was actually decent when paired up with Sapp and at least he lasted for 7 seasons for the Bucs. He's more like what Peerless Price was to the Bills. Compared to the other draft busts the team has had, Booger is way down the line.

Not a bust but not a Probowler which 1st rounders should be graded on.  So he didn't live up to his picking, but to get a #2 for him, totally redeems everything hes not done.

The trade means hes not a bust IMO. He was drafted in round 1. We got a 2nd round draft pick for him. He played well enough to make up for that round. Plus if you think about it, compared to otehr 1st round DT of the past 7 years, Booger ranks amongst the best of them as sad as that is.

He was never good rushing the passer, but he was good against teh run. He may not have made the splash plays against teh run like Sapp did, but he played very discipline din his gap and ate up blockers. In 2004 you could really tell when Booger got hurt and Chuck Darby got pushed around liek a pawn in the run game.

Not a bust just an underachiver, he was serviceable. In WR terms he is a number 2.

thats true it might be the hardest thing to do find an perenial probowl caliber DT
In a 4-3 system i can name about 5 maybe.
Henderson / Stroud / Harris / Rogers (although thats iffy with his steroid allegations.)  ---- Then maybe a young guy like Dockett, or fat old dudes like Adams, pat williams

For all the hype and $$$ regarding Booger, his return on TB's investment surely must put him in the "bust" category somewhere.

Looking at the guys who came out that year, McFarland was a decent pick.

He didn't live up to the hype but doesn't maen he's a bust. If McKay didn't sign him to that fat contract he'd still be here, IMO.

We're often quick to label players as busts when they don't meet our expectations.  Following Sapp, we expected Booger to be a guy who could take over a game.   Booger did fill a role here - if nothing else, he allowed the Bucs the opportunity to let Sapp go at a good time without stirring too much backlash.

I usually reserve the term bust for guys like Booker Reese and Keith McCants.

If Thomas Jones is considered a bust then without a doubt McFarland is considered a bust.

Err. Maybe I'm confused but I don't think the bucs drafted Tomas Jones??

Bugger != bust in my book.

Booger only bust as far as expectation which was as a dominant Dl. He gave us some good years but never was able to dominate a game ala Sapp.
