Michael Bush

Michael Bush expected to compete for the Heisman Trophy during his senior season in 2006, but a stunning leg injury ended his year in Louisville's first game. Bush broke his right leg during the Cardinals win and missed the rest of the season.

Bush likely would have been a first-round pick in 2007 if his numbers matched his junior year, but the injury and then necessary surgeries set him back. Bush fell way off the charts and ended up being drafted in the fourth round by the Oakland Raiders.

Bush was drafted 100th overall and it's hard to imagine that 99 players were more worthy of being selected than he was. He could become one of the draft's all-time steals if he gets his health back.
