Bud Schwenk 1942: If it wasn't so hard to judge what football was like 70 years ago, Schwenk would be in the top 11 for sure. What we do know is that he threw six touchdowns, 27 interceptions and had a quarterback rating of 25.5 during a rookie season that happened during the peak of World War II.
John Hadl 1962: Threw 24 interceptions while starting just 10 games. Sported a quarterback rating of 43.3 while completing just 41 percent of his passes.
Bob Timberlake 1965: Who? Timberlake played just one season in the NFL as a kicker with the Giants. He missed 14 of the 15 field goals he attempted. No further explanation needed.
Lynn Swann 1974: Picked 21st overall in the 1974 draft, Swann was expected to make an immediate impact in the Steelers' offense. Instead, he caught 11 total passes in 11 games and fumbled five times.
Renaldo Nehemiah 1982: The gold-medal Olympic sprinter didn't' come with the hype of a high draft pick, but as an experiment to see how an Olympic sprinter could do in the NFL. The answer was "not so good." Nehemiah played in eight games and registered just eight catches.
Herman Moore 1991: As the 10th pick overall in the 1991 NFL draft, Moore was expected to be a devastating weapon with Barry Sanders in the Lions' offense. He eventually was, but not during his rookie year. Moore caught 11 passes in 13 games as a rookie and didn't catch a single touchdown pass.
Vance Joseph 1995: In their infinite wisdom, the Jets signed University of Colorado backup quarterback Vance Joseph, turned him into a defensive back and played him in 13 games as a rookie. Any guess how that turned out? In his first start, which came against the Raiders on national television, Joseph was abused by Tim Brown and Jeff Hostetler. Joseph was mercifully cut after just one season on the Jets.
Cedric Jones 1996: Jones was the No. 5 pick in the 1996 NFL draft, played in 16 games as a rookie and had just six tackles. Unconfirmed rumors say that those six tackles came when he was pancaked and a running back tripped over him while he was on the ground.
Freddie Mitchell 2001: As the new millennium started, the Eagles had a void at the wide receiver position. When they chose Mitchell in the first round of the 2001, that was supposed to solve things. Instead, Mitchell had just 21 catches in 15 games as a rookie with one touchdown.
Eli Manning 2004: Played in eight games, the first seven of which were losses. Threw just six touchdowns, three coming in the season finale. Completed 48 percent of his passes and had a 55.4 quarterback rating.
Matt Dodge 2010: Inconsistent all year, drawing the ire of Giants fans. Topped off his season with a week 15 incident in which he was ordered to punt the ball out of bounds late against the Eagles. Instead, he punted the ball to DeSean Jackson, who returned it for the game winning touchdown. The Giants lost out to Eagles on a tiebreaker for a playoff berth based on that loss. Dodge was released in 2011 and has not surfaced again in the NFL.
