There are players who had a few mediocre years, players who washed out entirely, and players who never even tried to make it as a pro. Sure, a few of the picks are option quarterbacks like J.C. Watts, but most of them are either players who struggled with injury or players whose games should have translated to the NFL, and just didn't. Number One is Archie Griffin.
