Top 5 Worst Draft Picks- Tennessee Titans

Updated on April 29, 2015

These guys were brought in to help the team win, but couldn't accomplish anything on the field. Today I rank the top five worst draft picks by the Tennessee Titans.

5. Tyrone Calico

He was a gifted physical specimen who couldn't adjust to the NFL game.

During his four years at Middle Tennessee State, Tyrone Calico was the teams starter for three seasons. In his college career, he recorded 129 receptions for over 1,900 yards and 12 touchdowns.

Calico was selected in the second round in 2003 after running a 4.34 40 at the NFL Combine. He started just eight games over three seasons with the Titans, for whom he reached the end zone just four times and only recorded 42 catches for 501 yards. After a knee injury in 2005, he was released by Tennessee. He signed with CFL in 2008 but was soon released.

4. Chris Henry

He impressed at the combine, but his stay in the music city was brief.

In three years at Arizona, Chris Henry wasn't all that impressive. He was a backup for his first two years and as a junior he only rushed for 581 yards and seven touchdowns. He then decided to forego his senior year and enter the NFL draft.

Henry's intrigue grew in the time leading up to the draft. He dominated at the NFL Scouting Combine ripping through the 40-yard dash in 4.40 seconds. This lead Tennessee to draft him in the second round in 2007. He lasted only two and a half years in Tennessee and was very unproductive. In November of his rookie season, Henry was slapped with a four game suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy. Henry finished his rookie year with just 119 yards and two touchdowns. The next season was worse with one carry for three yards. He spent his final years in Houston and Seattle before calling it a career.


3. Adam Jones

"Pacman" had a lot of on the field promise before off the field issues got in the way.

As a junior at West Virginia in 2004, Adam Jones was the secondary captain and led the team in tackles and interceptions. Jones also played briefly on offense, as well as returning punts and kick-offs. He was a two time All-BIG EAST team member and the 2004 BIG EAST Special Teams Player of the Year.

Jones was selected sixth overall in 2005. Before off-the-field conduct halted Jones' time in Tennessee, he was an electric return specialist and play-making cornerback recording four interceptions and a touchdown in 2006. However, things went south in the offseason prior to the 2007 season. A shooting incident during NBA All-Star Game weekend in Las Vegas prompted a season-long suspension for Jones, who entered the NFL with numerous red flags regarding character.

2. Ben Troupe

He was brought in to fill the shoes of a team legend, but failed to live up to expectations.

In his four years at Florida, Ben Troupe displayed a heaping helping of potential while playing college ball. He recorded 64 catches for just under 1,000 yards and seven touchdowns in his college career. As a senior, he was named an All-American and All-SEC team tight end.

Troupe was drafted in the second round in 2004. The Titans hoped that his skill set would translate to the professional level. He lasted four seasons in Tennessee where his production failed even to match that of college teammate Erron Kinney. He accounted for 106 catches for barely 1,000 yards and seven touchdowns in that time. Neither Florida tight end was able to fill the shoes of pro bowler Frank Wycheck. Troupe spent his final year in Tampa Bay and Oakland before calling it quits.

1. Andre Woolfolk

He is the biggest disappointment in a talented class of defensive backs.

In his four years at Oklahoma, Andre Woolfolk was a tall, intimidating presence at the cornerback position.

Woolfolk was drafted 28th overall in 2003 and was a disappointment from the start. In his four years in Tennessee, he only started 12 games and recorded three interceptions. All of which were thrown by draft bust David Carr. The 2003 draft class produced quality defensive backs like pro bowlers Nnamdi Asomugha, Charles Tillman, Rashean Mathis, and Asante Samuel. As well as other productive starters in Ike Taylor and Yeremiah Bell. So the fact that all of these guys were available at 28, has to put a cringe on the face of Titan's fans.

      I agree. He's still productive, but if he didn't have his suspensions, he could have been amazing

      Had it not been for his own screw ups, Adam Jones could have been one of the best ever.
