Montee Ball, Wisconsin
Another product of the running back factory at the University of Wisconsin, Montee Ball was a two-time All-American who set the NCAA record for most career touchdowns (83) and tied the NCAA record for most total touchdowns in a year (39). He was also a consensus All-American twice and won the coveted Doak Walker Award in 2012.
But in the lead-up to the 2013 NFL Draft, pro scouts worried that the smallish Ball (5’10 and 214 lbs) was more of a product of Wisconsin’s offensive line, and might’ve gotten worn out from all the carries he had with the Badgers. Those scouts turned out to be right. Ball only played two years in the NFL, running for a total of 331 yards. He had almost as many fumbles (four) as touchdowns (five) in his brief NFL career.
