Next on the list is the University of Miami with 16 total first round picks. Miami has produced a consistently high-level prospect. In both 2003 and 2004, after being one of the top teams in the country, "The U" boasted stellar classes; the two years saw a total of 10 players selected in the first round, including Andre Johnson and Willis McGahee in 2003 and D.J. Williams, Kellen Winslow, Jonathan Vilma, Vince Wilfork and the late Sean Taylor in 2004.
With all of their success early in the 2000s, Miami has seen a severe decline in players selected in the first round. Since Larry Coker left Miami in 2006, the Hurricanes have had just four players selected in the first round, none since 2008.
Best picks: Vince Wilfork (2004), Andre Johnson (2003), Jonathan Vilma (2004)
Worst Picks: Brandon Meriweather (2007), Jerome McDougle (2003), William Joseph (2003)

Well there are plenty of other QB's that didn't work out but as 1st rounders from Florida goes, Rex is on the list of worst picks. He was at the helm of some successful teams, but was he the reason for the success? I don't think so.
Really Rex Grossman was a worst pick? Sure he is not the greatest QB to play the game, but he did throw for over 3,000 yards in two seasons and took a team to the NFC championship. There are plenty of other "bust QBs" who have done worse. Just the fact that the guy has stayed on a roster for 10 years is something of a success point when you consider how many players just plain don't make it at the top level of the game.
