4. Danny Wuerffel, Florida
If only Wuerffel could have been a full-time quarterback for four seasons, he could have set insurmountable records. After sharing the quarterback job with Terry Dean for two seasons, Wuerffel exploded in 1995 and 1996, leading the SEC in passing yards both seasons and leading the country in touchdown passes both years. In the end, he finished his college career with over 10,000 passing yards and 114 touchdown passes, the most in SEC history. His list of records doesn’t stop there either. Wuerffel also won the Heisman in 1996 and helped Florida win the SEC championship in all four of his seasons in Gainesville.
Unfortunately, Wuerffel’s skill set just wasn’t well-suited for the pros. He spent three years with the Saints and then three more seasons with three different teams. He started just 10 games during those six years, throwing 12 touchdown passes and 22 interceptions. Even reuniting with college coach Steve Spurrier and sharing time with former Florida quarterback Shane Matthews couldn’t get Wuerffel’s NFL career on track. Nevertheless, his accomplishments as a college quarterback are difficult to top.
