Cowboys Top 10 Biggest Draft Busts Of The Jerry Jones Era: #6

New, comments

Our continuing series looking at the Top 10 Biggest Draft Busts Of The Jerry Jones Era rolls on with #6. The guidelines - Must have been drafted during Jerry Jones' era (1989 - present), needs to be a player chosen in the 1st or 2nd round. Anybody below that is excused for sucking. It's not a list of the worst players, but a list of the worst value to the team, based on lack of contributions and when they were drafted. Also, certain intangibles can be thrown into the mix.

6. Jacob Rogers (2004, 2nd round, #52, T, USC)

Rogers was a successful tackle from USC but came with a history of medical problems. Early in the preseason of his rookie year, he damaged the cartilage in his knee. He later had micro-fracture surgery on the knee prior to 2005, along with shoulder problems, and his pro career was down the drain. According to his stats he participated in two games for the Cowboys.

rabblerousr: Rogers, who had an extensive injury history at USC, never could get on the field. Ultimately, the Cowboys brass determined that he wasn't tough enough.
