17. Case Keenum
Keenum was a quarterback for the University of Houston. It seemed like the man was simply unstoppable in college. He is among only a handful of men at any level of collegiate football to throw for 5,000 yards in three different seasons. While he threw for 44 TDs in both 2008 & 2009, both 5,000+ passing seasons, his senior season was his best year. That season, he threw for 5,631 yards and 48 TDs. Not to mention, Keenum has 23 rushing TDs for his entire college career.
Clearly, Keenum won several awards for his work all three starting seasons. He’d finish with Second-Team All-American honors at best. However, in 2008, won the C-USA Offensive Player of the Year and even became the Conference USA Most Valuable Player Awards winner twice (2009, 2011). He also won the Sammy Baugh Trophy twice (2009, 2011). Sadly, the highest Keenum finished in the Heisman race was seventh.
