Bust: Ron Dayne

Former University of Wisconsin running back and 1999 Heisman Trophy recipient Ron Dayne seemed poised for a fruitful NFL career. He was drafted to the New York Giants in 2000, but his lack of commitment to lose weight became a problem with coaches. He also played for the Denver Broncos and Houston Texans, but hasn’t played a game in the NFL since the 2007 season. (Photo: Jamie Squire/Allsport)
