I don't consider Starks a bust. He was an important piece on the Ravens winning a SuperBowl. He and McAllister made a very good duo for them for years. He just hasn't been able to shake the injury bug and age has caught up with him. He's been in the league for close to 10 years and has a ring... not exactly a bust.

Yea, but was any of these guys picked by the Saints? Dikta and Venturi would have screwed the up for sure.
