Chris Spielman

Number 36, Disrespected by the Hall of Fame

Spielman is more of a fan favorite than a favorite amongst people that matter. He had a great career at OSU and has showed his love for the game by moving to broadcasting, but he still hasn't paid his dues, give it another decade or so and he'll make it if he's still involved in the sport.
