Just because a player becomes a Heisman finalist doesn't guarantee them success at the next level word to Joey Harrington. Tim Couch is another player that falls into the Heisman hype then doesn't deliver in the NFL. In Couch's rookie year he led his team to a stellar 2-12 record after sitting out his first game to Ty Detmer. Couch had a breakout season his second to last year leading his Browns to a 9-7 record, only to break his leg in the last game of the season, have his team lose in the first round of the playoffs and never regain the starting spot.
Butch Davis made it clear after juggling through quarterbacks that he didn't trust Couch with the ball and after Couch's 3-5 record as a starter his last year in Cleveland he wasn't picked up by any other teams after that, making him not only one of the biggest draft busts in the history of the NFL, but one of the worst quarterbacks as well.
