Jerry Tagge

No. 11 overall, Green Bay Packers, 1972

Tagge played on national championship Nebraska teams in 1970 and 1971 before joining the Packers. But Tagge was no match for NFL defenses, as he passed for just three touchdowns (and 17 interceptions) over three seasons. Years later, Tagge was named an all-star of the Canadian Football League, but he could never shed the "bust" label.
