No. 4: LB Percy Snow

One of the best players in the history of Michigan State football, linebacker Percy Snow had only a short NFL career because of an off-field injury. Thus, he's always going to be considered a bust.

As a senior in 1989, Snow racked up an amazing 183 tackles. For his efforts, he earned consensus All-American honors. He was then selected with the No. 13 overall pick in the 1990 NFL Draft by the Kansas City Chiefs.

Things got off to a good start for Snow as he appeared in 15 games for the Chiefs as a rookie, 14 as a starter, and he garnered all-rookie honors from the UPI, Pro Football Weekly, andFootball Digest. However, that offseason he was injured while riding a motorized scooter. That would cause him to miss all of the 1991 season.

When he returned to the field in 1992, he was a shell of his former self. He struggled to see the field and would make only one start.

After three seasons, Snow's career would be over. In all, he would make only 15 career starts. That makes him one of the biggest draft busts to ever come from Michigan State.
