There were a lot of people who thought Ryan Leaf would be a better NFL quarterback than Peyton Manning, but luckily the Colts didn’t listen to them and took Peyton first overall in the 1998 draft.
Manning brought home Indianapolis’ lone Super Bowl trophy and threw for 54,828 yards and 399 touchdowns during his 13 seasons in a Colts uniform.
