2 - Darcel McBath(Lasted only a couple of years as a special teamer)

2 - Richard Quinn (Traded several mid round picks for this awful player who did nothing)

3 - Kenny McKinley (Was a special teams standout in year one before sadly taking his own life. RIP.)

4 - David Bruton (Only player still on the roster from that draft and our special teams captain)

5 - Seth Olsen (I think he's a starter somewhere now, but we cut him after one season)

6 - Tom Brandstater (Lasted one year as a third string QB. Out of the league.)

7 - Blake Schleuter (Failed to make the roster)
This one is not one of the worst of all time.

The top two guys were major contributors to a Super Bowl berth (and death).

There have been drafts that haven't produced anything at all.

The Alphonso Smith thing is one of the worst little nuggets in draft history. McDaniels HAD to have him, so the pick he traded for him ended up being EARL THOMAS. Yikes.

Honourable mention, the 2007 Indianapolis Colts draft class:

1st round: Anthony Gonzalez, WR.
99 catches in 5 years with the team. Only 5 catches in his last 3 seasons.

2nd round: Tony Ugoh, OT.
The Colts spent their 2008 first round pick to trade up and pick Ugoh in the middle of the second round. He was released in 2010.

3rd round: Dante Hughes, CB. (Loved him as a prospect.)
Cut after 2 seasons.

3rd round: Quinn Pitcock, DT.
Played one year before retiring due to depression, ADHD and video game addiction. Currently playing for the Arizona Rattlers in the Arena League.

4th round: Brannon Condren, CB.
Cut after one year.

4th round: Clint Session, LB.
Most productive player in this class. Had a couple of 100 tackle seasons, before being let go after 4 season with the team.

5th round: Roy Hall, WR.
Caught 1 pass for 9 yards in 2 years in Indy.

5th round: Michael Coe, CB.
Cut after one year.

7th round: Keyunta Dawson, DT.
Played 4 years as a rotational guy, beforebeing let go.

That was to high for Gonzalez even then. What a bust draft.

Many of the drafts been thrown around in here had one or two guys that played at a reasonable level for a few years. The Broncos used 3 first round picks and two second round picks to get two backups that recently received extremely little interest in FA.

Moreno only became a starter because he knew the protections. His running was awful considering almost every single run came on a 6 man box.

Might not be worst of all time, but if Manning didn't come to Denver that draft would have set the Broncos back about 10 years.
