Robert Griffin III and Trent Richardson were the No. 2 and 3 overall picks in the 2012 NFL Draft. The teams that drafted each player thought so highly of their potential that they traded up in order to secure their services.

On Monday, hours after RGIII was relegated to backup duty by the Redskins, the Raiders released Trent Richardson. Richardson was already on his third team after starting his career with the Browns.

Both players are cautionary tales of the perils of trading away valuable draft picks -- possibly mortgaging a franchise's future in the process -- to acquire a player. Here's a look at 15 of the worst NFL trades involving draft picks.... more

Recently, we ranked the quarterbacks selected No. 1 overall in the NFL draft's modern era (since 1967). This time, we rank the 28 non-quarterbacks taken with the No. 1 overall draft choice, starting with a recent top pick whose early career trajectory hasn't been too promising.

College football annually presents a wide variety of marvelous player names. Whether the names are totally unique, difficult to pronounce or just plain fun to say, this is a starting lineup of the best names in college football for 2015.

The players on the 2015 college football all-name team don't just possess interesting names, but are also expected to be contributors for their respective teams this fall. Only those who are expected to play made the cut; in other words, if you tune in to watch a game involving that player's team, you should hear said player's name during the broadcast.

Notre Dame (with two enshrinees) and USC (with one) will add to impressive lists of contributions to the Pro Football Hall of Fame when the 2015 class is inducted Saturday. Counting players, coaches and contributors that come from schools (and in some instances, said enshrinee attended multiple schools), Notre Dame and USC pace other colleges in presenting the best lineup of Pro Football Hall of Famers.

However, what are the chances another college could catch them? Well, we also take a look at possible future Pro Football Hall of Fame enshrinees from the schools mentioned below, gauging each program's chances to add to already extraordinary Hall of Fame tallies.... more

When the Tampa Bay Buccaneers selected Florida State's Jameis Winston with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, Winston became the 21st quarterback to be taken with the top pick in the NFL draft's modern era (since 1967).

While football fans eagerly await the progress of Winston's NFL career, we'll take a look at what he has to live up to -- on both ends of the spectrum -- with this ranking of the previous 20 quarterbacks to be selected No. 1 overall in the NFL draft.... more

This is a ranking of the last 25 Heisman Trophy winners (going back to 1990), including the top two selections in the 2015 NFL Draft and most recent Heisman winners -- Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota.

Why are we including Winston and Mariota? Because this is a ranking of the Heisman winners not based just on what they accomplished in the NFL, but also taking into account the college football achievements of each award winner.

It also should be noted that in this exercise we are not excluding Reggie Bush, who won the Heisman Trophy in 2005 but voluntarily forfeited his trophy in 2010. While records can be vacated years after the fact, you can't take away the memories.... more

Of the 77 different players who have won the Heisman Trophy, there are more players who never played one NFL game (14) and more players who went undrafted (15) than players who went on to be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame (8).

Here is a look at the biggest disappointments among Heisman winners in the NFL going back 25 years, starting with Robert Griffin III.... more

Winning the Heisman Trophy doesn't necessarily translate to success in the NFL. Most astute football fans already know that. But did you know that there are more Heisman winners who went undrafted (15) than those who are currently inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame (8)?

On Sunday, Peyton Manning set a new career mark for most TD passes, topping a record set four years ago by Brett Favre, who broke Dan Marino's record eight years after it was established.

Did you follow all of that? Marino retired in 1999 with 420 career TDs. Favre broke that record in 2007, set his career mark of 509 in 2010, and then saw it extinguished in 2014 by Manning.

That's a nice little record worthy of adulation (for which Manning received plenty), but it doesn't register among the NFL's most unbreakable all-time records. Take a look at the list below. There's also a nice little debate box at the bottom of this page if you care to comment intelligently.

Once upon a time, the NFL draft was barely a blip on the radar of football fans, and the scouting procedures of league teams for potential players wasn't sophisticated, either. Before the NFL draft became the overanalyzed behemoth it is today, top talent often wasn't selected until late in the annual National Football League Player Selection Meeting (the event's original, and much less marketable, moniker). Much of this list is a reflection of the draft's unpretentious roots, when some of the game's all-time greatest players fell to draft depths that would be unthinkable today.... more
