This list is all about the system. In college football, the system can be everything.

Remember Darron Thomas?

Just a few years ago, he was at the head of one of the most potent offenses in college football at Oregon, led his team to a perfect season and went on to win the Rose Bowl in his final college game.

Then he went undrafted in the NFL draft. He currently plays in the Canadian Football League.
