Cowboys Top 10 Biggest Draft Busts Of The Jerry Jones Era: #2

Our continuing series looking at the Top 10 Biggest Draft Busts Of The Jerry Jones Era rolls on with #2. 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.

2. Shante Carver (1994, 1st round, #23, DE, Arizona State)

Carver played in Dallas for four years with minimal impact. 1997 was the only season he was mainly a starter, and he accumulated just six sacks. In four years at the defensive end position he totaled 11.5 sacks. After his time in Dallas, no other NFL team would sign him. That's pretty much a huge bust for a player taken #23 overall.

OCC: Shante Carver was the first first-round pick of the post-Johnson era, and never made an impact in Dallas

rabblerousr: Ron Wolf of the Packers had Carver rated as a seventh-rounder. Case closed.
