The Browns will probably take all of them, anyway.
Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier is still in the hospital in Pittsburgh, but he has begun rehab, according to a statement from University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.
Ryan Shazier remains hospitalized at UPMC recovering from the spinal stabilization surgery performed last week by UPMC neurosurgeons and Steelers team physicians, Drs. David Okonkwo and Joseph Maroon, the statement read. Mr. Shazier has started physical rehabilitation as part of his recovery process.
I knew they were an amazing organization, but more than ever they’re family to me. Lastly, I want to thank Jimmy, Candice, and the CAA Sports staff for being here when I need them most. I don’t know if I’d be where I’m at or making the progress I’m making without you guys. I want everyone to know that all of the support and prayers are absolutely being answered. I will continue to work hard and push and find a way back.
Wilson was drafted later, in the third round, than anybody else on this list. But he’s included because once camp began, Seattle’s coaching staff had no choice but to name the rookie the starter over Matt Flynn, who had just signed a big contract.
The Seahawks felt they had a third-round steal with Wilson, and the Super Bowl ring a couple years later proved them correct. Now most teams wish Wilson was on this list as an actual first rounder; their first-rounder.
Manuel was a bit of a surprise pick at No. 16 overall in a weak QB draft class. The Bills named him starter for Week 1 hoping he could be the glue to hold together a talented offensive unit.
Manuel was unable to stay on the field for a full season in Year 1 due to a knee injury, and when on the field, he was average at best. The Bills have since moved on.
Smith was a second-round pick, but he’s included because he was drafted to replace Mark Sanchez, who had struggled throughout his Jets career. A preseason injury to the incumbent allowed Smith to begin his career immediately in Week 1.
