Ranking The Last 20 Heisman Winners Based On Their NFL Careers Since he's still in college, Lamar Jackson is omitted from the list

20. QB Jason White: Oklahoma -- 2003


White had a phenomenal career during his time in Norman. During his Heisman Award-winning season, White threw for 40 touchdowns and 3,846 yards. A year later, he inexplicably finished third in the voting after accruing arguably a better year (45 touchdowns, 3,205 passing yards). White led the Sooners to consecutive National Championship appearances (though OU failed to win either game). In terms of a professional career, White is the only player on this list without any NFL experience. He had multiple knee injuries -- which effectively hindered his ability to scramble from the pocket.

19. QB Eric Crouch: Nebraska -- 2001


Crouch is one of the best dual-threat signal-callers in College Football history. His ability to manipulate defenders with his ball handling was special -- as was his innate ability to instinctively exploit creases within the opposition's defensive scheme. He is one of three quarterbacks in Division 1 history to have rushed for at least 3,000 yards and throw for 4,000 yards. Crouch accrued over 2,600 total yards during his Heisman Trophy year. A tiny frame made playing the quarterback position in the NFL highly unlikely. Crouch toiled around several practice squads as a wide receiver/defensive back. He briefly got his chance as a quarterback for the Toronto Argonauts in the Canadian Football League. His professional career ended in 2011.
