The Top Ten

1 Quinton Patton Quinton Patton

Drafted by the 49ers in the fourth round in 2013, he was actually a started for the 49ers at one point. Now he's already had two huge games for the Iron. - SirSheep

2 Christian Hackenburg Christian Hackenburg

A former second round pick of the Jets, he ended up never taking a snap in the NFL. He sat on the bench for two years in New York before being released, and then bounced around teams, always being cut before joining the AAF. Where he still hasn't won a game - SirSheep

Definitely not helping his stock right now with an 0-2 team. - PackFan2005

And he's been benched. 2 interceptions thrown in the beginning of the third game (almost 3). Benched for Mettenberger. - SirSheep

3 Zac Stacy Zac Stacy

Also draft in 2013, he had one great season for the St. Louis Rams. After that, his career sort if fell apart - SirSheep

4 Trent Richardson Trent Richardson

He had a lot of hype coming out of Alabama. Obviously, he didn't live up to it. He played for the Browns, and was widely considered the top running back of the 2012 draft class. He now plays for the Birmingham Iron. - SirSheep

Perhaps paving his way back to the NFL? - PackFan2005

5 Nick Novak Nick Novak

A kicker that was signed after going undrafted in the 2005 NFL draft by the Chicago Bears. (Miss him now? ) He now plays for the Iron as well. - SirSheep

6 Josh Huff Josh Huff

A wide receiver that used to play for the Eagles, he was drafted in the 3rd round of the 2014 NFL draft out of Oregon. He now plays for the Arizona Hotshots. - SirSheep

7 Will Sutton Will Sutton

A defensive lineman, who used to play for the Bears, never recorded a sack in the NFL. He will now try to do something for the Hotshots. - SirSheep

8 Matt Asiata Matt Asiata

He filled in for Adrian Peterson while A.P. dealt with off the field issues. He put together a solid season next to Jerick McKinnon, now a member of the 49ers. Injuries have held Asiata back, and he now hopes to essentially restart his career in the AAF, for the Salt Lake Stallions. - SirSheep

9 Zach Mettenberger Zach Mettenberger

A quarterback drafted by the Titans in the 6th round of the 2014 draft, he was basically a career backup until he got to the AAF. He now plays for the Memphis Express. I guess that he loves Tennessee... - SirSheep

10 Will Hill Will Hill

Former defensive back for the Ravens, he's known for his iconic special teams play where he recovered a blocked field goal and returned it for a touchdown. After that season, he was released and went to the CFL. - SirSheep
