Josh Booty played in the Marlins system, and even played a few games at third base in the National League.

Not what I usually think of when I hear the term "booty call".

I've heard of Doug Flutie but who are the others?

Guys who were big in college and quietly washed out in the NFL.

"Big in college" is even going a bit far for Josh Booty. He played two years at LSU and had 24 TDs vs. 34 interceptions. His final game was a bowl and he got pulled at halftime. Somewhat miraculous he got drafted, even if it was the 6th round.

John David Booty's claim to fame was being Matt Leinart's backup and eventual successor at USC. (He's the younger brother of Josh.)
