I think a lot of rational people felt that Bush's game would be severely different in the NFL.
I pictured him as a Brian Westbrook type RB, utilize him in the pass in order to establish the run. Others thought he'd be the next great as you mentioned.
But it's easy to point the finger and say "that guy is a bust" with citing one example to dismiss the notion of drafting Spiller, when, if utilized correctly, he can improve our offense immensely.
Look at how fast Philip Rivers developed in San Diego when he had LT, Sporles, and Turner in the backfield as the main power to that offense.
