2012: Trent Richardson, RB, Cleveland Browns
In what appeared to be a star-studded 2012 NFL Draft, the Cleveland Browns were so enamored with Trent Richardson that they sent Minnesota three draft picks to simply move up from #4 overall to #3 overall, in order to draft Richardson. But after a somewhat promising rookie season, Richardson had a miserable sophomore season in Cleveland, leading the Browns to trade him to Indianapolis. Over the next four years, Richardson bounced around three more NFL teams.
His most recent (and perhaps final) comeback attempt was with the Baltimore Ravens in the summer of 2016, but they waived him right at the start of training camp. Richardson will be known as the guy Cleveland took with their top pick ahead of Pro Bowl players like Luke Kuechly, Fletcher Cox, and Russell Wilson. Richardson is now the starting running back for the Saskatchewan Roughriders of the Canadian Football League.
