2015. Todd Gurley (Pick: Jameis Winston)
Who would’ve thought that the best player to emerge from the 2015 NFL Draft was the one with the greatest injury concerns? University of Georgia running back Todd Gurley was coming off a major knee injury when heading into the draft, leading to the question of where he’d be taken as being one of the true wild cards that year.
While there were rumors that some teams in the top 10 that year were seriously considering taking him, the then-St. Louis Rams selected him with the 10th overall pick. Gurley quickly emerged as one of the best running backs in the NFL, culminating in him winning Offensive Player of the Year in 2017.
