11. Travis Rudolph
Rudolph entered the NFL Draft in 2017 as one of the best college receivers in the nation but still went undrafted. Most people expected him to enjoy a stellar career but the reality is that he didn’t meet his potential with the New York Giants. After two seasons his NFL career ended. Then, in 2021, police arrested him after he unloaded a firearm on a vehicle carrying four passengers.
“I remember the feel-good story of how he sat with a lonely autistic kid at lunch when he was at FSU. Kind of a hard detour from that,” CenturionElite wrote on Reddit about the tragic incident. Rudolph received multiple criminal charges including one count of first-degree murder after one of the victims died. It’s the type of tragedy that is unfathomable in the eyes of most people.
