While Wright was not a game changing player, he understood his role and was not a liability. Wright signed with Tampa Bay as a free agent where he played as a depth defensive back for three seasons. Only keeping Wright through his rookie contract does not make it a great win, but getting three years of starter play from a third round pick is not a blown pick either.
4. Corey Wootton, DE, Northwestern
Wootton had the size to be a great defensive end. However, it never clicked for him on the field. Multiple changes in coaches and schemes did not help, but Wootton was just one of those players who had the tools but could not put them together. He did start 22 games for the Bears in his four-year stint with them. However, he also played in just five NFL season and he has not made an NFL roster in the past two seasons.
5. Joshua Moore, DB, Kansas State
Moore never left his mark in the NFL. As a rookie, Moore was called up from the practice squad and appeared in three games. However, he was waived the following season and did not spend any time on any other team’s active roster.
