    All of these decisions should have cost them their jobs as well. The draft is where teams are supposed to build their franchises. Get some of the top prospects to fix their teams. This year we had what could be a very loaded first round from guys like Baker Mayfield Ben Powers Jersey , Saquon Barkley, Josh Rosen, and all the way to Lamar Jackson. They could all be defining players, or they could all be busts. There are obviously some of the most famous busts on this list. Players who just could not live up to their hype.There are some real head shakers. From a kicker who was the most accurate in the history of college who went to the least accurate kicker in the NFL to Heisman trophy winners who just did not translate. Players whose off the field situations got the best of them from drug abuse to jail time. Then there were quality players who just did not play very well in the league. They had a lot of talent but for some reason or another , they just could not reach the level of the draft pick that they were selected at. For so many of them, there were Pro Bowlers and Hall of Famers who were taken after them, showing just how bad the decision to take them was. So here is the list of every single NFL team's worst draft pick of all time, the ones that still hurt today. The Detroit Tigers fired pitching coach Chris Bosio Trace McSorley Jersey, saying he made insensitive comments to another employee of the team.
    ”I have to take seriously what the comments were,” Tigers general manager Al Avila said, declining to give details. ”And, the action we took was appropriate.”
    The Tigers promoted bullpen coach Rick Anderson to replace Bosio. Roving pitching instructor A.J. Sager will be the team’s bullpen coach until Triple-A Toledo pitching coach Jeff Pico takes his place next week.
    Avila said Bosio made the comments recently and they were brought to Avila’s attention Tuesday. Avila decided Wednesday to terminate Bosio’s contract after the team investigated the situation and spoke to all of the people involved.
    Avila said what Bosio said violated team policy and his contract Ed Oliver Jersey , though Avila otherwise spoke highly of Bosio’s job performance.
    ”He definitely was a good pitching coach,” Avila said.
    Tigers right-hander Alex Wilson said he and teammates heard rumors of what had taken place.
    ”We’re sorry to everyone that it affected,” Wilson said. ”It’s not a good day here. It’s a sad day. But we’re going to move forward, and hopefully this brings us closer than we’ve ever been.”
    Bosio , a former major league pitcher, was in his first season as Detroit’s pitching coach after serving in the same role for six years with the Chicago Cubs. The Cubs didn’t renew Bosio’s contract after last season and hired Jim Hickey to replace him, reuniting manager Joe Maddon with his pitching coach in Tampa Bay.
    The 55-year-old Bosio was 94-93 over an 11-season career, mostly as a starter Devin Singletary Jersey , with Milwaukee and Seattle. The right-hander threw a no-hitter in 1993 for the Mariners against the Boston Red Sox.
    Bosio was hailed for his work with the Cubs’ pitchers, helping them have the lowest ERA in the major leagues from 2015 through 2017. Chicago won the 2016 World Series and reached the NL Championship Series last year and three years ago with Bosio as its pitching coach.
    His first job in the majors was in 2003 as the pitching coach for Lou Piniella in Tampa Bay. He also has worked as a pitching coach in the minor leagues and an advance scout for the Brewers, who named him interim pitching coach in 2009.
