14. Peyton Manning, QB, Tennessee (1994-97)
Peyton Manning arrived at Tennessee with huge expectations, and he lived up to most of them. He started by winning the SEC Freshman of the Year award and finished his career as the runner-up in the Heisman voting. He chose to return for his senior season even though it was clear he’d be the No. 1 overall selection, which he was a year later. Manning’s record as a starter was 39-5, and he finished with 89 touchdown passes, 11,201 yards and 863 completions. Manning was both an All-American and an Academic All-American. Manning is recognized as one of the best quarterbacks in the history of college and NFL football.
