2003: Charles Rogers, WR, Detroit Lions
Want proof that Joey Harrington had virtually nobody to throw the football to? One of the “studs” the Lions selected to catch passes from Harrington turned out to be one of the worst draft picks in NFL history.
The Detroit Lions made wide receiver Charles Rogers the second overall pick in the 2003 NFL Draft. But issues with injuries, and a subsequent addiction to prescription painkillers resulted in his demise; he was out of the league by 2005.
Rogers finished his NFL career (3 seasons) with 36 catches for 440 yards. To make matters worse, the player selected one pick after Rogers, was Andre Johnson. Johnson finished his career with 1,062 catches and 14,185 yards. And if they decided to draft for the defensive side of the ball, they could have landed Terrell Suggs (#10) or Troy Polamalu (#16).
