#3 Joey Harrington

Detroit Lions selected Harrington with the third overall pick in the 2002 NFL Draft.

No matter the age, every Lions fan should know who Joey Harrington is. Coming out of Oregon, Harrington was a Heisman candidate and that was good enough for Detroit to select him and make him the face of the franchise.

Things did not go so well for Joey and the boys. The team never won more than six games, Harrington never completed more than 57 percent of his passes as a Lion. Sure, the offensive line was not the best during Harrington’s run but it was unlikely he was going to be great even if the team gave him a good offensive line.
