Give a quick response as to why you think this.
-he does have some speed but to me he doesnt seem to have the instincts I think it takes in playing MLB. To me he has disappeared in stretches of games. Takes bad angles sometimes. Dont see him as being that MIKE LB teams are coveting with the first round pick.
All depends on your expectations. If someone is expecting any QB in this years draft to be Peyton Manning then all QB's will be a bust. If whomever expects McClain to be Patrick Willis then he will def be a bust because he just isnt that kind of player. I do not want McClain at all.
As for Spiller if you are expecting him to be Chris Johnson then yes he will be a bust. On the other hand if you are expecting a guy who will give us good starting field position on kick offs, come in and run around th edges making it easier for Gore to take it up the gut and play like a reciever when we go into the spread ala Reggie Bush in NO then I think you will be pleasently suprised.
Bust is all relative to your expectations for the most part. There are exceptions, see Vernon Goldhston, Darrius Heyward Bey and many others but usually this is because somebody reached in the draft for the guy which again in return raised the expectations about him.
