6. QB Brady Quinn (2007 NFL Draft: Round 1, Pick 22)
Brady Quinn comes from an impressive family. His sister Laura is a knockout. I’m sure she’s also very successful, but as she’s not a prominent public person, it’s hard to know for sure. Her husband, Brady Quinn’s brother-in-law is Green Bay Packers legend, A.J. Hawk. Quinn’s cousin is former Home Improvement and Fast and the Furious star Zachery Ty Bryan.
Any of one of them would’ve been a better pick here.
Quinn wasn’t just bad, he was boring. At least with some busts, the disaster is still entertaining. Watching Johnny Manziel self-destruct provided more moments of interest than anything Quinn ever did. Having been drafted in the 2007 Draft and forced to live forever in the shadow of Joe Thomas’ shadow, Quinn never found a moment to call his own. Even William Green had “Run, William, run!”
Quinn had….what? He replaced Derek Anderson, the Browns only Pro Bowl quarterback in the modern era and followed it up by being even more disappointing than Anderson was.
He had terrible accuracy and was arguably too bulky to be efficient. The dude looked like a linebacker, which is funny considering how he played. Like a quarterback who’s actually a kicker in disguise. A jacked-up kicker. A kicker wearing ice-skates, trying to complete passes with the blade of the skate.
He was bad and forgettable.
Unlike Home Improvement.
