14. Colt McCoy (Texas)
Because he didn’t turn out to be much of a quarterback at the professional level, we overlook just how good Colt McCoy was during his time with the University of Texas. As a senior, McCoy won 13 of the top 15 major awards given to college football players, including quarterback of the year, offensive player of the year and outstanding football player of the year.
The two-time Walter Camp Player of the Year Award winner was also a two-time First-Team All-American, and took the University of Texas to the precipice of its second National Championship win in less than five seasons, but he ended his college career with shoulder injury in their eventual loss to Nick Saban and the University of Alabama in the 2010 BCS National Championship Game.
