Cam Newton - Auburn (2010)

Newton, even with just one NFL year under his belt, has probably had the most success of anyone on the list. Cam played his first two years at Florida, and after a laptop-theft scandal essentially forced him out, he rebounded by transferring to Blinn Junior College, where he transformed himself into one of highest rated recruits in the country. Newton then transferred to Auburn and led the Tigers to the BCS title, winning the Heisman Trophy along the way.

He was drafted #1 overall by the Carolina Panthers in the 2011 NFL Draft, and broke numerous rookie quarterback records in his first season with the team.
