11. QB Vince Young, 3rd overall in 2006 Draft
Vince Young was the high profile quarterback bust that preceded Jake Locker, but the Titans got considerably more out of the Young pick than out of the Locker pick, which shows in their respective rankings. Vince Young, a heralded prospect after one of the greatest bowl game performances ever, did not mesh well with the coaching staff since Vince Young was reportedly forced onto Coach Jeff Fisher by owner Bud Adams. Despite this, Young’s career got off to a fast start with the quarterback being named offensive rookie of the year. He then led the team to the playoffs the following season.
After the 2007 season, Young only played 19 games in the next 3 seasons due to injuries and disagreements with Fisher and the coaching staff. Optimists might look at Vince Young’s career and try to defend him by pointing out the lack of support from the coaching staff or his playoff season, but in truth, he posted a 9:17 touchdown to interception ratio and the team had a much better season the following year with Vince Young on IR. Vince Young only had a positive TD:INT ratio twice in his – career and he never seemed to improve on his rookie season. Young has since spent a year with Philadelphia and attempted a comeback bid with a CFL team in 2016, but he since has been injured and will likely never play again.
