We're moving on to our list of draft busts in the Jerry Jones era. We limited this list to guys drafted in the 1st and 2nd rounds only. Those are true busts; you expect the guys taken in those rounds to be solid contributors. The higher you were drafted in those rounds, the bigger the bust. If you went on to play for another team and managed some stats, we graded that as mitigating circumstances and gave you a little credit. We also threw in intangibles when appropriate. It's by no means a perfect list, but we took a shot anyway.
10. Kavika Pittman (1996, 2nd round, #37, DE, McNeese State)
At pick #37 in the 2nd round, Kavika Pittman was practically a first round pick. In fact, he was the Cowboys first pick in the '96 draft. Pittman spent four years in Dallas, and started for two. In his best year, he had 6 sacks and 37 tackles. Basically he was a non-factor. He did go on to play for Denver for a couple of years and had a seven sack season there, but sadly, the Cowboys wasted their pick.
