2002: David Carr, QB, Houston Texans
The strong-armed David Carr was the first overall selection for the newly-established Houston Texans franchise. But Carr spent his first few seasons taking a merciless beating from opposing defenses, finishing his career with 65 touchdowns passes and 71 interceptions. There were many whispers that Carr simply absorbed too much punishment early on, leading to his love of the game literally being beaten out of him.
Carr currently works as an analyst for the NFL Network, and will be remembered as the guy the Houston Texans took instead of future Hall of Fame like Julius Peppers and/or Ed Reed.
