Drew Stanton gets my vote. Jordon Dizon was very close, but he was at least able to contribute on subpackages for a few years. Drew Stanton was forced into a few games because of injuries at the position, but there's something wrong when you spend a 2nd round pick on a player who can't establish himself as discernibly better than Jon Kitna, JT O'Sullivan, Dan Orlovsky, or Daunte Culpepper.

Of that group, Jordan Dizon easily. Imagine Ray Rice instead of eventual third rounder Kevin Smith. But the 2007 2nd round as a whole was about terrible as you can get. Drew Stanton, Ikaika Alama-Francis, and Gerald Alexander.


Yeah the whole 2007 2nd round gets my vote.

The entire 2007 draft was pretty disgusting except for Calvin.

Drew Stanton - We spent a 2nd round pick on a perpetual 3rd string QB.

Ikaika Alama-Francis - One career sack

Gerald Alexander - Average backup safety

AJ Davis - Never even signed to the practice squad, let alone the 53-man roster. This was the draft pick we acquired for trading Josh McCown AND Mike Williams.

Manuel Ramirez - Started at guard for a bit, but wasn't any good

Johnny Baldwin - Made the 53-man roster for a day; was cut after we signed someone new, and signed off the practice squad by KC. Never played an NFL game.

Ramzee Robinson - Mr Irrelevant played for a couple of years, mostly on special teams.

I wonder how many career games all of Millens draft picks have played together...

Drew Stanton.

Only a homer would of liked that pick and actually thought he could be a good starter in this league.

I cant really put Dizon ahead of him since I didnt know much about him at the time.

He was our third pick that year. 2nd round, yes, but the third player we picked.

It's even Dizon or Stanton in my book.

Slight edge to Dizon because we supposedly called and told Ray Rice we were going to take him and then didn't.

Ouch. That's enough to make me even change my selection to Dizon then.

Uh you just answered your own question. You didnt even hear about him that year and yet we took him in the 2nd round...

and not to mention on Stanton, that draft class for QB's sucked in general and we needed a QB. Atleast we didnt take Brady Quinn @ 2 over Calvin Shocked

Seriously Jamarcus, Quinn, Kolb, Stanton, Beck, Edwards

Stanton may of actually been the most productive out of that group. Worst QB class of all time?

UH, I didnt know what we were getting in Dizon, so I UH couldnt say it was my least favorite.

I UH knew Stanton was mediocre, and it was UH my least favorite from this UH list.

I was going to have Drew as my least favorite, because I was most upset when we drafted him. However, Stanton defeated the Packers. That alone means he can't be in the top two on my list.

1. Titus Young
2. Jordan Dizon

Not to mention he is the only one still in the league from the worst selections.

Right. Its ridiculous that people would chose that as their pick. Atleast he was somewhat productive.

Young and Dizon were also somewhat productive. Given that Stanton was a second round QB and he was only a perennial 3rd STring QB I don't blame them for picking him.

Young-could have been productive. Showed some flashes but crashed and burned due to disorder (maybe). Mayhew shouldn't have taken him in the first place. So many red flags.

Dizon-Poor. Did do something but wasn't anything. Not an NFL player.

Stanton-Did have some productive games but in those games you could see how bad of a QB he really is.
