Miami Dolphins Top 10 Draft Busts: #4 Jamar Fletcher

The #4 Miami Dolphins Draft Bust of All Time is...

Jamar Fletcher, who was a 2001 1st round pick, 26th overall.

As if it wasn't bad enough that the former Wisconsin cornerback lasted only three years in Miami and intercepted only two passes. But I was tempted to rank Fletcher higher than fourth on this list for two reasons. One - the Dolphins had no need for a corner in 2001. Sam Madison and Patrick Surtain were absolute studs. Why waste a first round pick on a nickel corner?

And two - the guys that the Dolphins passed over to select this nickel corner.

How about Reggie Wayne, Todd Heap, and Chad Johnson. Oh yeah - and there was this quarterback named Drew Brees. What ever happened to him? Well at least Nick Saban helped correct this wrong by signing him as a free agent in 2006.

Wait - what? They passed on Brees again? Really?

That whole mess could have been avoided with one simple decision. But apparently Jamar Fletcher was just too tempting.
