Who was your favorite 9er who never panned out?

Definitely Manny Lawson for me. He was just never pass rusher we hoped he would be.
T.O.,Julian Peterson and Andre Carter. Mostly T.O.

mays is a GREAT example.
Blount. He was a Niner for half a day.
R W McQuarters

He had talent as a DB. Just didn't do much the first 2-3 years that he was here. Went on to have a good career elsewhere.

Since a lot have been mentioned that I agree with, I'm gonna go real old school. As a kid I loved that he could punt, but he could never really lite it up to take over
from John Brodie as a qb, that's Steve Spurrier.
I would of loved to see Cody Pickett with this coaching staff ...wasted raw talent
TE Greg Clark. Dude was solid but injury prone.
dominique zeigler

i feel sorry for his knee injuries
i believe he had 3 major knee surgeries

Braylon
JJ Stokes. Actually, he had a productive career by NFL WR standards, but clearly he did not match his hype and the maybe unreasonable expectation that he was going to be Rice's heir apparent.

TO was of course at the opposite end of that spectrum.

TO didn't pan out?

Pretty much all those guys were highly productive players for us through their tenures on the team.

i think so to kray i kind of wanted us to sign carter this year as a backup end. hell i would have taken julian peterson to for outside linebacker depth. I hate owens but he was not a bust. rod woodson is still at my top. how could such a hall of fame player do so poorly for us? was it our system?


he represented a glimmer of hope during a very dark time.
