No. 8: Ray Drew

Year – 2011
Position – Defensive End
Why he’s a bust – Never lived up to the hype

When people looked at Ray Drew at Thomas County Central High, they thought they were seeing a young John Abraham. He was quick, strong, and had some excellent moves to get to the quarterback. Sporting a 5-star ranking and rated the No. 2 defensive end in the nation, the Bulldogs looked to have a sack machine coming to town.

But Drew’s career was hardly stellar, with the exception of 2013, he never tallied more than 15 solo tackles or two sacks in a season. He came into Georgia looking like a sure-fire first round pick, but left without being drafted at all. Largely, his motivation and work ethic were questioned.
