Worst Week: The worst draft picks in Philadelphia sports history


Article Summary:

We gave weight to how high the pick was, and how far short of expectations the player fell.

Sharone Wright, Sixers

Wright was okay as a rookie, making the All-NBA Second Team, but he was traded in his second year at the trade deadline and his return was pretty lacking – Tony Massenburg, Ed Pinckney, a 1996 2nd-round draft pick and a 1997 2nd-round draft pick. Wrote Kevin Noonan of the Wilmington News Journal: “Never had the Eagles had a combination of bad person-bad player that could match this guy.” [Deadspin]

Allen was described by then-head coach Buddy Ryan as a player who would only be useful “If you want someone to stand around and kill the grass…” Jerry Rice was drafted six picks after Allen was in 1985. The Birds were unable to get anything for McDougle, who was cut, played four games for the Giants in 2008 and never played again.
