Todd Blackledge, No. 7 Overall, Kansas City Chiefs, 1983
Consider this: in the 1983 NFL Draft, Blackledge was the second quarterback selected, behind only the No. 1 pick, John Elway. After Blackledge went to the Chiefs at No. 7, four other quarterbacks were drafted in the first round: Jim Kelly, Tony Eason, Ken O'Brien and Dan Marino. Three of those first-rounders went on to have Hall of Fame careers, and four reached at least one Super Bowl. Blackledge, however, never started more than eight games in a season for the Chiefs before ending his career as a backup with the Steelers. (AP Photo)
