WHAT A WASTE! What NFL player had the most talent but blew his career over drugs or something else stupid?

For me it's LSU's Cecil Collins. I saw him play in person a few times and the guy was unreal. What a waste.

    Lawrence Phillips.

    What that guy did in college was amazing.

    How did Tom Osborne keep him in line...I'll never know.

    But he sucked a$$ in the pros and was fighting with everyone.

    Then he went to Europe and tore it up over there.

    He came back to the US and again started behaving like an a$$ again.

    Not only was he an a$$hole with the Rams, but also under Bill Walsh and Jimmy Johnson.

    My properly 3: Marice Clarett; negative judgement and absence of effortless experience sank any danger of a NFL occupation. Ricky Williams: ability to be a HoF RB sunken with the help of the shortcoming of ability to stay faraway from the sticky in the course of the season. M. Vick: A Degenerate recommendations with insane athletic expertise sitting in the back of bars.

    Laurence Phillips was unstoppable in college and could have been a star in the NFL if he could have controlled his temper... Osborne didn't really keep him in line either because he was in trouble a few times there as well.

    Todd Marinovich and Dan McGwire.

    You know Ricky did like the Ganj, but he also had Crippling social anxiety disorder. Give him a break.

    Something else stupid? If you take everything into account, I have to say I think T.O. is doing a great job pissing his career away...if Parcells can't turn him around, I think he's through...and it's a shame

    I think Ricky Williams had the most potential but was too big a pot head to see it through.
