Default Re: How high were you on Ryan Leaf pre-NFL?

6. Heath Shuler

Shuler was a dominant QB at the University at Tennessee, impressing Washington Redskins scouts so much they selected him with their first pick (3rd overall) in the 1994 draft just like fellow draft bust Bruce Pickens.

Billed as the quarterback of the future, a contract holdout, poor play and a shoulder injury saw Shuler lose the starting job to fellow 1994 draftee (7th round) Gus Frerotte.

He lasted three years with the Redskins before being shown the door, moving on to New Orleans and Oakland, where his poor play continued and multiple injuries to his foot eventually ended his undistinguished career.

The story ends well for Shuler and Washington D.C., even though he was a draft bust he still contributed to the nation's capital as a pretty good congressman.
