No one will ever forget the draft day misery that Aaron Rodgers went through in 2005.
Rodgers attended the draft in person and was expected to be a very early selection, possibly even the first pick of the draft.
But the San Francisco 49ers passed over Rodgers for Alex Smith. After that, a number of teams simply didn’t need a quarterback.
So Rodgers waited and waited while all the other players in attendance heard their names and went to the podium. Rodgers didn’t hear his name until pick No. 24, when the Green Bay Packers chose him to be Brett Favre’s backup and heir apparent.
In the end everything worked out for Rodgers, but that might not be the case for these 10 draft prospects who might fall down the board this weekend at the 2013 NFL draft.
