On the low end, there's possibly the worst NFL bust of all time, JaMarcus Russell.

Just to set some FACTS straight, the Raiders paid Stanford Routt more than the Eagles paid Nnamdi Asomugha, so money wasn't a factor there.

Jamarcus Russell, Todd Marinovich, Rickey Dudley, and Derrick Gibson I can agree on as the worst picks in Raider history. However, there is no way to include Robert Gallery ahead of guys like John Clay and Bob Buczowski who never played a full season. Eldrige Dickey, Patrick Bates, and Marc Wilson are very dishonerable too along with Michael Huff, who I think is getting too many second chances.

As far as best draft picks go, How can they not include hall of famers Howie Long and Art Shell who were second and third round picks? Rod Martin was quite spectacular for a 12th round pick and holds the superbowl record for most INTs in the superbowl. Steve Wisniewski was a regular in the pro bowl and Shane Lechler currently is and who's that Raider WR that's 3rd all time in the NFL in receiving that never had a Hall of Fame QB throw to him that's been passed up for the Hall of Fame the last 2 years...I believe his name is Tim Brown

Yep, hindsight is always 20-20 isn't it. Certainly would have preferred Ray Lewis over Ricky Dudley, and Drew Brees over Derrick Gibson.

The best draft pick was Gene Upshaw. His impact was much like Ray Lewis. Upshaw had leadership skills that were off the scale, much like Lewis. The worst is Russell, no question. Marinovich is somewhat close. The fact that Russell was #1 overall is the difference.

The best would probably be Kenny Stabler and the worst....{drum roll, please}....JaMarcus Russell.

Jennifer is right...Kenny Stabler
We haven't drafted a great one since, but passed on guys like Ben Rothlesberger, Drew Brees, and Phillip Rivers just to name a few...
