Number 4: Sylvester Morris

Draft Pick: 1st Round, Number 21 overall, 2000 NFL Draft

Sylvester Morris was drafted to bring some relief to Tony Gonzalez as the only legitimate threat in the passing game that the Chiefs had. His rookie season- which ended up being the only season of his career- was admirable enough to give Chiefs fans some hope.

He caught 48 passes for 678 yards and three touchdowns, giving him an average of 14.7 yards per catch. He seemed like he could’ve the answer for the Chiefs as a deep threat but suffered a knew injury during mini camp of the 2001 season.

Dick Vermeil tried to give Morris a chance, as he kept him on the roster until 2003, when the Chiefs finally decided to waive him after he had been put on IR for the third time in-a-row.

Morris is simply a bust because he was drafted in the first round and only played in 15 games for the Chiefs. It’s a crying shame that the poor guy’s legs gave out on him. He really had some potential.
