4. Matt Stafford (2009)
A true gunslinger out of the football hotbed that is Texas, with an absolute rifle for an arm, Matthew Stafford arrived in Athens, Georgia as the top-ranked quarterback in the 2006 high school recruiting class, and became a three-year starter for the University of Georgia Bulldogs (prior to leaving after his junior season).
As a junior, Stafford was named an All-American, and won the Most Valuable Player award of the 2009 Capital One Bowl. When Stafford declared for the draft, it was all but a foregone conclusion that he was going to be taken #1 overall, by the Detroit Lions.
