Washington Redskins Top Ten Draft Busts: Heath Shuler

As I said yesterday, we have 20 days of draft coverage coming your way. We will alternate our offerings between Draft Busts and Draft Successes. This is done as a service to our fellow Redskins fans who have suffered enough through the years. Subjecting our readers to ten straight days covering the busts would simply be cruel.

Speaking of cruel, how about Heath Shuler as your starting quarterback? We took Heath #3 overall in the 1994 draft. The only players that were off the board when we picked were Dan Wilkinson and Marshall Faulk. That's right, we made Heath the top QB chosen in that draft. Interestingly enough, we also picked the 4th-to-last QB in that draft: Gus Frerotte.

While in town, Heath managed to complete roughly 47% of his passes and toss 19 interceptions en route to a 4-9 record across 3 seasons. Even under the tutelage of veteran QB coach Norv Turner, Heath struggled. Though it is tough to say if he was actually struggling. He was very bad right away...from the second he got here. So to be fair to Heath, that 4-9 record might have been him playing at an All-Heath level.

This pick will challenge them all for the right to be called the worst.
