Last night, Robert Griffin III was selected as the 77th Heisman Trophy winner.
He will soon have to decide if the desire to come back and try to become the second player in Heisman history, or to realize his dream of being an NFL player.
Most mock drafts have Griffin III being a Top 15 pick if he decides to declare for the draft. However, that does not guarantee that he will have success.
In fact, very few Heisman winners have went on to have NFL success in recent years.
There are, however, the exception to the recent failures. In this article I will list five players who had successful careers after winning the Heisman. This list does not contain every player that was able to make the transition from Heisman winner to NFL star.
