that is kind of a dumb statement on lowe's part because it implies that the team intentionally bad picks because they felt like having bust...the oilers didn't draft bonsignore with the intention of him being a bust. and the ONLY way to avoid potentially picking a bust in the 1st round is to avoid picking in the 1st round completely so you can save your potential bust for later in the draft because almost nothing is a given in the draft...
