20. Adam “Pacman” Jones

Adam “Pacman” Jones was a highly touted cornerback with West Virginia and was thought by many to be one of the best athletes in college football, largely due to his explosive speed and agility. He ended up being taken 6th overall in the 2005 NFL Draft by the Tennessee Titans and his fall from grace began almost immediately as contract disputes and numerous off field incidents led to animosity between the Titans and himself. Over the next few years, there would be many more arrests which ultimately led him to be suspended for the entire 2007 season and a portion of the 2008 season. He’s turned into a solid player for the Bengals, but if he was focused from the get go, he could’ve been an all-time great at the position. I truly believe that.
