2013: EJ Manuel, QB, Buffalo Bills
In fairness to EJ Manuel, when the Buffalo Bills took him with the 16th pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, most analysts considered the pick to be a gross reach. But that pick looks even worse when you juxtapose it with the fact that DeAndre Hopkins, Le’Veon Bell, and Travis Kelce were all taken in the same draft, after Manuel. In his 28 games as the Bills starting quarterback, he threw for just 19 touchdowns compared to 15 interceptions. Manuel lasted four non-descript years in Buffalo before signing with the Oakland Raiders this past offseason, to back up quarterback Derek Carr.
Manuel is one of many Florida State quarterbacks to produce very little at the pro level. Others on that list; Christian Ponder (2011), Chris Weinke (2001), and Danny Kanell (1996). The jury is still out on Jameis Winston.
