Top 10 Oakland Raider Draft Busts of All-Time: #10 Derrick Gibson, S, Florida State

Top 10 Oakland Raider Draft Busts of All-Time: Derrick Gibson, S, Florida State

To understand how depressing this pick was, all one has to do is look at 3 of the 4 names that followed Derrick Gibson in the 2001 NFL Draft, Reggie Wayne, Todd Heap and Drew Brees.

Coming out of FSU, Gibson was supposed to be the enforcer that the Raiders were missing in the secondary since the passing of Eric Turner (God rest his soul) . Instead, what Oakland got was a wasted draft pick as, in five less than stellar seasons, Derek Gibson totaled three interceptions, one forced fumble, 194 tackles and 14 passes defensed. 

After five less than stellar seasons Derrick was out of football after the Raiders declined a 10 million dollar option on his contract after he'd already made nearly 6.8 million in his first six seasons. 

Gibson was a "Swing and a Miss" by a team that was in desperate need of getting young while continuing to get better. he comes in at #10, so just wait until the rest of the list is unveiled in the coming days!

Here is a list of All Oakland Raider Draft Picks. Who are your top 10 busts?
