15. Shane Matthews, Florida
Matthews could flat out sling it during his college days and was one of many quarterbacks to excel under Steve Spurrier. In fact, he was the quarterback during Spurrier’s first three seasons at Florida. Matthews was a First-Team All-SEC selection all three years, won SEC Player of the Year twice, and helped the Gators win the SEC title in 1991. He remains one of the all-time great players in Florida history.
Despite hanging around the NFL for 14 seasons, Matthews only started 22 games as a pro, appearing in 32. He never started more than seven games in a season and struggled to maintain a job as a starter despite being a valued backup for many years. When he was done playing, Matthews got into both radio and coaching. He then went into business but got involved with a company doing some shady things, ultimately serving three months in prison.
