No. 4: Brady Quinn – Notre Dame Fighting Irish

Draft Year/Round: 2007/1st Round (22nd overall)
Drafted By: Cleveland Browns

Quinn was the quintessential Notre Dame quarterback. Big, strong, stubborn and able to leap tall buildings with a single contract. Forget the failings of Rick Mirer and Ron Powlus…Brady Quinn was the next Joe Montana, and (of course) it was Cleveland who bought into that sales pitch.

All you need to know about registering Quinn as a bust is his NFL resume; two seasons in Cleveland, two seasons in Denver, a season in Kansas City, a season split between Seattle/NYJ/St. Louis, and a season in Miami.

Quinn is one of the only first round quarterbacks who should have had a bus transfer pass included in every contract.
