Ball had a very successful college career, rushing for nearly 2,000 yards in consecutive seasons in 2011 and 2012. He was drafted in the second round of the 2013 NFL Draft by Denver, where he rushed for 731 yards and five touchdowns in two seasons of action.

Ball is still just 25 years old. Let's hope he gets his life back on track.
