In his last year with Washington State University, Ryan Leaf put himself high on draft boards with his performance. Finishing third in the voting for the Heisman Trophy, Leaf seemed like a lock for a top 10 pick when he declared for the 1998 NFL Draft. The San Diego Chargers took him with the 2nd overall pick (right behind some dude named Peyton) and the rest is history. And by that, we mean, his short-lived NFL career. After being hampered by everything from consistently poor play to attitude issues which involved confronting reporters, Leaf eventually left the NFL after four years. Nowadays, the only arm he's associated with is the long arm of the law.
