David Klingler, Cincinnati: Coming from a Run-and-Shoot offense, Klingler couldn't make the adjustment to a bad Bengals offense. He had a strong arm but turned out to be the third worst selection of the past 10 years behind Ryan Leaf and Heath Shuler.
Tommy Maddox, Denver: Bounced back after being out of the NFL from 1995-2001 to become the Steelers starting quarterback. Won seven of 11 games last year. He lasted only two years with the Broncos after they made him the 25th pick in the first round.
Dave Brown, N.Y. Giants: Giants used a supplemental pick on Brown, who started for three seasons from 1994-1997. Basically a career backup.
1993Drew Bledsoe, New England: Had a 63-60 record with the Patriots before being traded to the Bills for a first-round choice. Produced an 8-8 record in turning around the Bills last season.
Rick Mirer, Seattle: Won only 22 of 60 starts with the Seahawks and later the Bears. Has been a third quarterback for the past couple of years.
1994Heath Shuler, Washington: Despite being a top choice, he was beaten out by seventh-rounder Gus Frerotte and never recovered. His career ended early because of foot problems. Never showed the accuracy to be an NFL starter.
Trent Dilfer, Tampa Bay: Was a surprise sixth pick in the 1994 draft and managed a low-scoring offense for the Bucs from 1994-99. He won a Super Bowl ring with the Ravens and earned a starting job with the Seahawks in 2001. His career record as a starter is 51-43.
1995Kerry Collins, Carolina: Even though he took the Panthers to the NFC championship in his second year, he was released two years later when the team and organization lost faith in him. He was the fifth choice in the 1995 draft. He re-emerged as a starter with the Giants in 1999 and took them the Super Bowl.
Steve McNair, Tennessee: He was the third pick of the 1995 draft and a success story. The organization was patient enough to give him two years to learn the offense without having the pressure to start him too early.
1997Jim Druckenmiller, San Francisco: This 49ers gamble didn't work. They drafted him in the first round but he never could get many starts. The Colts are taking a chance on him this year by bringing him to training camp.
1998Peyton Manning, Indianapolis: The No. 1 overall pick, he has been one of the league's best quarterbacks. He's 42-38 as a starter and has been to three Pro Bowls.
Ryan Leaf, San Diego: The second pick in the draft was a disaster. He lasted a couple of years before moving on to backup roles in Tampa Bay, Dallas and Seattle. He quit last year instead of being a third quarterback with the Seahawks.
1999Tim Couch, Cleveland: After winning only 11 games as a starter in his first three seasons, Couch won eight of 14 starts and helped to make the Browns a playoff team in his fourth season. Is battling Kelly Holcomb for a starting job this year.
Donovan McNabb, Philadelphia: The second pick in the draft was a major success story. He's kept the Eagles as an NFC championship contender and is one of the most dangerous quarterbacks in the game.
Akili Smith, Cincinnati: Won only three starts with the Bengals and is pretty much a third quarterback who's on his way out in Cincinnati. If the Bengals draft Carson Palmer, they may release Smith in June. Completed only 47 percent of his passes as a pro.
Daunte Culpepper, Minnesota: Took the Vikings to an NFC championship game in his second season, his first as a starter. He's 21-22 as a starter and in the final year of his contract. The Vikings are having a tough time coming to a contract resolution.
Cade McNown, Chicago: Had a horrible 3-12 record as a starter and didn't seem to have the arm strength or leadership to turn the franchise around. He's hanging around the 49ers roster hoping to be a third quarterback.
2000Chad Pennington, NY Jets: Didn't get a chance to start until his third season and took the Jets to the playoffs with an NFL best 104.2 quarterback rating.
2001Michael Vick, Atlanta: Took the team to the playoffs and filled the Georgia Dome in his second year. Has the look of a superstar.
2002David Carr, Houston: Survived an NFL record 76 sacks and won four starts for an expansion team. He completed 52.5 percent of his passes and had nine touchdown passes.
Joey Harrington, Detroit: Was 3-10 as a rookie starter. He completed 50.7 percent of his passes as a rookie and had 12 touchdown passes.
Patrick Ramsey, Washington: Selected with the final pick of the first round, Ramsey heads into the 2003 season as Washington's starter.
