Sam Bradford (2008)
After throwing for more than 4,700 yards and 50 passing touchdowns in just his sophomore season, Bradford won the Heisman Trophy ahead of Colt McCoy from the University of Texas, and Tim Tebow from the University of Florida (the reigning Heisman Trophy winner). He declared for the NFL draft after his junior season, but never got anywhere near living up to the billing of his #1 overall selection.
After stops in Philadelphia, Minnesota and Arizona, Bradford is currently a free agent. Bradford’s career high for touchdown passes in a season is a measly 21 scores. To put that into perspective, it took Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes just seven games to toss 22 touchdowns! In today’s NFL, there’s no place for a check-down artist like Bradford.
