I was thinking about college football players who were super hyped by the media with video packages and extremely spectacular highlights on the college level. yet they come to the NFL and get switched out of position, relegated to backup roles or get washed out of the league entirely, stuck to play in arena leagues, the CFL or for whatever startup league they can find..
This will be an ongoing thing, like Highlight Factory, in which I try to bring to light, superstars of yesteryear who lit it up as amateurs but maybe couldn’t do the same in the NFL, for whatever reason.
Total shame these guys couldn’t make it.
First up, Seneca Wallace!
This dude was a legitmate Heisman threat. Could run, could pass across his body. Had a handle on an offense and made some ridiculous plays all over the field…These videos show that to you in SPADES.
So what happened to him?
Lost in the shuffle my friend….lost in the shuffle. How he became a career backup is beyond me. I’m happy he’s been able to cash a check for the past 6 years and be in the NFL but I would’ve loved for him to really get a shot to be something in this league.
If you have any other options for this segment, I’m always up for submissions. I’ve got a lot of names in mind already so I may have some you already thought of. Just be patient. They may show up, they may not…
And then he was gone….
