BRODIE CROYLE – Third Round Pick (85th Overall) in 2006 NFL Draft
Before Ricky Stanzi was drafted, it had been five years since the Chiefs had taken a quarterback at any point in the draft. Perhaps a lot of that was because of Brodie Croyle, who was a third round pick by the franchise in 2006 and has gone down as one of the worst starting quarterbacks in Chiefs history.
The Chiefs had Trent Green leading the way for several years, but with injuries piling up and Green just getting older, the team had to look in a different direction. Enter Brodie Croyle, who was going to be the next franchise quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs.
One of the biggest issues with Brodie Croyle was that the guy just couldn’t stay healthy. He was always getting injured.
Croyle had spent his college years at Alabama and was a proven winner. That didn’t translate to the NFL though, as Croyle never won a game during his NFL career.
Unlike the other guys on this list, Croyle did see playing time for the Chiefs and started a whopping ten games in five seasons. During those five seasons, Croyle threw for 1,669 yards, eight touchdowns, and nine interceptions. He went 0-10 as a starter.
One of the biggest issues with Brodie Croyle was that the guy just couldn’t stay healthy. He was always getting injured and it led to guys like Damon Huard and Tyler Thigpen having to step in and start several games.
The last straw for the Chiefs was when Croyle started a game in 2010 and couldn’t move the football at all. It was disappointing to see a former third round pick fail so hard, but he was let go from Kansas City after that season and never took a regular season snap ever again.
He’s been out of the league since 2012.
