2. Curry Burns
This red-hot safety singed opposing offenses at the University of Louisville, though after begin drafted by the Houston Texans in the seventh round of the 2003 draft, his pro career failed to generate much heat. His most notable season came in '04, when he played in eight games for the New York Giants and recorded an interception. After a couple of stints on practice squads, Burns was out of the NFL by '07, proving that you can, in fact, hurry the curry (to an early retirement).
