Vernon Gholston (Retired / Honorable Mention)
Even though he was an all-time bust, there’s no denying that Vernon Gholston was an all-time BEAST. At the 2008 NFL Combine, Gholston put up 37 reps on the bench, which was the most of any player that year. Standing 6-foot-3, weighing 266 pounds, Gholston looked like a Marvel action hero who was carved from stone.
The Jets thought they found a player who would terrorize NFL quarterbacks for the next decade. But the story of Vernon Gholston goes to show you that size doesn’t always matter in the NFL. Despite being an absolute freak of nature, Gholston NEVER records a single sack in the NFL (that’s not a typo).
