4. Greg Landry

Ah, yes. Here we go. It is another former first-round quarterback for the Detroit Lions. This time, it's Greg Landry, who came out of Massachusetts back in the 1968 NFL Draft. Detroit selected him 11th overall that year.

Now, this list has been rough. But, let's give it a positive breath, here, for a minute. Landry's lone Pro Bowl bid came in 1971 when he threw for 2,237 yards, 16 touchdowns and 13 picks. Most impressively, he led the NFL in yards per completion with 16.4.

That wasn't even his best season (thank God, right?) though. His best year as a pro came later on when he played for the Baltimore Colts. Ah, there it is. His best year didn't come in Detroit.
