It’s hard to say that a player with three 1,000-yard rushing seasons is a bust, but the problem with Benson is that his best years did not come for the team that drafted him. 

Benson was taken fourth overall by Chicago in 2005 and over three seasons with the Bears 1,593 rushing yards and in 2007, his final year with the team, he averaged just 3.4 yards per carry. 

Then, Benson found a home with the Cincinnati Bengals and from 2009-2011 had three straight seasons with at least 1,000 rushing yards and six touchdowns.
