Brian Bosworth, Oklahoma
Linebacker Brian Bosworth drew a lot of attention during his playing days at the University of Oklahoma. Aside from being an excellent player on the field (Bosworth finished fourth in Heisman voting in his senior year), his off-the-field persona was larger than life. He was the first pick in the 1987 NFL Supplemental Draft and offered what was the biggest rookie contract at the time.
But Bosworth only played 24 games in three seasons and totaled just four career sacks. After a few injury-plagued seasons, “The Boz” retired due to a nagging shoulder injury. He moved around as a commentator for a few networks before getting involved in acting. His credits include Stone Cold, The Longest Yard (2005), and a trio of Revelation Road films. Nowadays, he’s often featured in several TV commercials, alongside former college superstar, Bo Jackson.
