Matt Leinart

USC

Leinart seemingly had it all. As a junior, he won the Heisman Trophy, led the Trojans to a national championship and was the projected top pick in the draft. But he loved the college life. The decision was a poor one as Leinart struggled, USC failed to win the national championship and he fell to No. 10 in the 2006 draft, where he was chosen by the Cardinals. He was relegated to backup Kurt Warner, failed to seize the job after Warner's retirement and is now a backup with the Texans.
