Leaf was the second overall pick in the 1998 NFL Draft. He was picked by the San Diego Chargers as the second overall pick in the NFL draft behind Peyton Manning. He declared he would forego his senior year at the Washington State University and turn professional. The Chargers signed him a four-year contract worth $31.25 million, including a bonded $11.25 million signing bonus. High hopes for him were soon dashed along with his poor operations in his rookie season. An episode of the NFL Top 10 ranked him as the No. 1 “draft bust” in NFL history.
When his NFL career finished, Ryan Leaf completed his degree at Washington State University. He became an unpaid volunteer quarterbacks coach at West Texas A&M University in 2006. He stepped down in 2008 after allegedly asking a player for pain medicine. Beginning 2010, he encountered legal troubles involving drugs after a Texas judge sentenced him to 10 years probation. In December 2012, he began serving a seven-year sentence in state prison following a suspended sentence with a stint in drug rehabilitation.
