1998 Mike Wahle† OT 2nd Green Bay Packers Navy Wahle was suspended for senior season by the NCAA after testing positive for steroids.
1998 Jamal Williams† NT 2nd San Diego Chargers Oklahoma State Williams was declared academically ineligible before his senior season.
2006 Ahmad Brooks† LB 3rd Cincinnati Bengals Virginia He was dismissed from his college team.
2012 Josh Gordon† WR 2nd Cleveland Browns Baylor Dismissed for failed marijuana test.
Brooks did end playing pretty well, but not for the Bengals which are the one that spent a 3rd round pick on him.
Gordon, when he's not suspended for many failed drug tests... he's a star player.
Though you also got a few late round selections that might of been considered worth it depeneding on your point of view such as 2007 Jared Gaither, who started two seasons as a 5th round pick.
