27. Josh McDaniels
On paper, the Broncos seemingly made the right pick when they hired McDaniels. After all, he coordinated Tom Brady’s offense for the better part of 11 years. However, it’s an understatement to say his tenure in Denver didn’t go well because it was downright disastrous. McDaniels spent less than two seasons in Mile-High City. Fans wished that he never arrived at Empower Field (via USA Today).
They went 8-8 in his first year before dropping to 3-9. McDaniels made poor calls like firing and hiring wrong staff members. Meanwhile, Kyle Orton just wasn’t skilled enough as their starting quarterback. Finally, the Broncos decided to cut him loose before the end of his second year. He was also part of an infamous cheating scandal. Eventually, McDaniels found his way back to Foxborough.
