Art Schlichter, No. 4 Overall, Baltimore Colts, 1982
Schlichter started just six games over three seasons with the Colts, finishing his career with three touchdowns and 11 interceptions. But what really derailed his career was his gambling addiction. Schlichter was said to have blown his signing bonus midway through his rookie season, and even bet on NFL games. A series of suspensions, coupled with growing gambling debt, pushed the former top-five pick out of pro football. (AP Photo/Gene J. Puskar)
