Welcome to the Hardcore Husky Forums. Folks who are well-known in Cyberland and not that dumb.

What Pac 12 player you thought was NFL star that ended up nothing.

My vote goes to LaMichael James, he was so fucking good at Oregon.

Thought for sure he was Barry Sanders 2.0, now he sells cheeseburgers.

Side note i would have drafted Ryan Leaf over loser Payton Manning.

    I was thinking James when I read the thread title. He went to a good Niners team that ran the damn ball and didn’t do shit.

    Vontaez Burfict…$5.3mm in fines and lost salary. First round grade, went undrafted and signed for a $1000 bonus. The fourth Hanson brother from Slap Shot…

    As shitty Jon Wilner, love this stuff so I'll do each Pac-12 team.

    Shocked people are saying LaMichael James. Always seemed like a pure college guy - really small and seemed like a lot of his success had to do with the hurry up and their system. Kenjon Barner always seemed just as good to me too.

    Washington - Reggie Williams - Heard he didn't work hard enough to be an NFL impact guy.
    Washington State - Rien Long (pre-combine) - Once he showed up like 100 pounds overweight at the combine it was clearly over.
    Oregon - Jake Fisher
    Oregon State - DeLawrence Grant
    Cal - Jared Goff - thought he'd be better
    Stanford - Bryce Love - thought he was too small to be a star and let himself get too beat up in college but surprised I don't think he ever played an NFL game.
    UCLA - Dave Ball
    USC - Marqise Lee
    Arizona - Ka'Deem Carey
    Arizona State - Vontaze Burfict
    Utah - Star Lotulelei
    Colorado - Chris Brown

    I agree with most of this. I think Reggie developed a coke habit. Vontaze was voted to the Pro Bowl in his second year and had a 7-8 year career so not sure I'd lump him in here. N'Keal Harry from ASU would be my vote.
    Yeah, calling Vontaze a bust is a stretch.

    Harry is like many WR’s. Tall, jump ball artists are almost always overrated in the NFL.

    Reggie Bush is pretty disappointing. Emtman, John Ross.

    Big ditto on Marqise Lee. I thought he'd be a great pro.

    There were several surprising disappointments from Pete's USC run, and in the few years thereafter. Nick Perry, Shawn Cody, Barkeley, Dirty Sanchez, Sedric Ellis, Keith Rivers. There are others. Totally agree that Bush was a disappointment. Leinhart looked like the college system QB, so I wasn't shocked about that one. But I expected Bush to be a great pro. He was not.

    Injury related, but I thought he was going to be a 1st rounder

    Marqise Lee for me. He was the best Pac-10/12 WR I’d ever seen. Jesus fucking Christ this is his career game log, unstoppable.

    Bryce Love

    I felt bad for Bryce Love his Senior year. I think Shaw was giving him like 60 carries a game. He was obviously beat up. Even though he still managed to hobble his way to a win over us.
