He's bad. Awful. Nowhere near the front of the line... Although he probably slides into the top 100 somehow...
Cade McNown - Drafted 12th overall, Gholston was 6th overall. McNown at least started.
Patrick Bates - Drafted 12th overall, had 18 starts in career. 18 starts more than Gholston
Jack Thompson Yes drafted higher (3rd), but had 33 TDs. He sucked, but at least he contributed in some way
Kelly Stouffer - Drafted the same spot as Gholston. Was a bust for the Cardinals because he refused to sign his contract and then they traded him a way. So at least they got something out of him.
Joe Profit - Drafted seventh. Had three career rushing TDs. Three more TDs than sack master, Gholston, got in sacks.
Bo Matthews - Drafted second overall. Got 1566 rushing yards, 11 career TDs, and 488 receiving yards. Yes, he sucked, but more productive than Gholston.
Heath Shuler Second overall. He sucked. One of the biggest all time busts.
Art Schlichter - A huge draft bust and one of the only players with a lifetime ban for gambling.
Lawrence Phillips - He was a huge bust too, but he did play two mediocre seasons for the Rams. He was far more productive than Gholston and they were both drafted sixth overall.
I am sorry, but Gholston ranks right up there with most of these guys.
