5. DAVID UNDERWOOD
Tom Lemming Rank (Class): #66 (2001)
Ranked ahead of...: Craphonso Thorpe (#71), Matt Leinart (#76), Kyle Orton (#86)
Skinny: Underwood was supposed to be Chris Perry's successor heading into the 2004 season. After playing like crap against Miami Ohio, Underwood got a "concussion" on the second play against Notre Dame. He basically never saw the field again, as Mike Hart rushed for over 1,400 yards.
Whereabouts: Unknown (although he does have a Facebook profile)
4. RYAN MUNDY
Tom Lemming Rank (Class): #31 (2003)
Ranked ahead of...: Donte Whitner (#47) , Mario Williams (#90)
Skinny: This guy was ranked ahead of Donte Whitner coming out of high school. Whitner was just the 8th overall pick of the 2006 NFL Draft, while Mundy is just looking to start after missing almost the entire 2005 season with a shoulder injury. You can't fault a guy for being hurt, but Mundy wasn't exactly a shutdown corner in 2004.
Whereabouts: University of Michigan
3. CLAYTON RICHARD
Tom Lemming Rank (Class): #22 (2003)
Ranked ahead of...: LaMarr Woodley (#27), Ernie Sims (#28), LenDale White (#39)
Skinny: A two-sport star in football and baseball, "The Rocket" was supposed to be the next Drew Henson. Instead, Richard's college career went about as well as Henson's career - Rocket was a complete bust.
Whereabouts: Playing for the Chicago Cubs' Class 'A' affiliate in Kannapolis, NC
2. MATT GUTIERREZ
Tom Lemming Rank (Class): #26 (2002)
Ranked ahead of...: Jason Avant (#49), Drew Olson (#93)
Skinny: The kid never lost a game in high school. He was supposed to be the anti-Navarre: a winner that was mobile and... latino. As stated earlier, one of three things happened with Gutierrez: he actually injured his shoulder, was benched for disciplinary reasons, or was the subject of racial discrimination. Either way, he bombed big time.
Whereabouts: Idaho State (Division I-AA)
1. KELLY BARAKA
Tom Lemming Rank (Class): #16 (2001)
Ranked ahead of... Larry Fitzgerald (#24), Shaun Cody (#28), Marlin Jackson (#31)
Skinny: Who else? Superman had Kryptonite, Baraka had Ganja. The all-everything RB from Portage Northern got busted for weed not once, not twice, but three times before getting the boot from Lloyd Carr (or at least we can speculate he was busted the third time). He never played a down.
Whereabouts: Unknown (Last anyone heard, he transferred to Joliet Junior College)
