There has been a rather disappointing trend from college to the pros in terms of efficiency and overall impact for players who dominated college football and won the Heisman – then came to the pros. Sure, they all had great college careers, but for many of them – that wasn’t the case for the NFL. Nevertheless, we counted down each Heisman winner since the 2000 season from best to worst, hope you enjoy!
Players who didn’t qualify:
QB Jason White, Oklahoma
White was not drafted in the 2005 NFL Draft and didn’t even receive a tryout before the draft. The Titans signed him as an un-drafted free agent but due to weak knees he quit and took up coaching.
QB/WR Eric Crouch, Nebraska
Crouch was drafted by the Rams to be a wide receiver but he still wanted to play quarterback. Crouch never played a snap in the NFL regular season and was cut from every team that even took a shot on him.
