Tim Tebow: Will he soon top the list of legendary Denver Broncos draft busts?
With debate about whether Tim Tebow's first-round selection is now officially a waste, rumors are flying that the Broncos may cut him. If they do so, Tebow will no doubt join the list of all-time draft busts assembled earlier this year by our friends at Mile High Report. But where would he fall? The competition is definitely stiff. Page down below to check out five of MHR's top ten -- including the ultra-embarrassing number one selection, which Tebow would have a chance to displace.
No. 9: Tommy Maddox.
In 1992, during the height of tension between John Elway and coach Dan Reeves, the Broncos drafted Maddox out of UCLA as Elway's heir apparent. Problem is, Elway didn't need an heir apparent, as those two subsequent Super Bowl wins demonstrate. Maddox wound up having a decent stint with the Pittsburgh Steelers, but did nothing much of note in predominantly orange.
