SMU head coach Chad Morris called him possibly the best quarterback he's ever coached, yet he went undrafted in the 2010 NFL Draft.
That QB's name: Jevan Snead. Does it ring a bell?
Snead, who played his final two years of college ball at Ole Miss, threw 26 and 20 touchdowns in 2008 and 2009 for the Rebels. Some draft analysts projected Snead as a high first-round pick. However, after declaring for the draft and subsequently getting overlooked, he was signed by the Tampa Bay Bucs, but never played a snap.
Morris coached Snead in high school in Texas. The former Clemson OC recently sat down with FOX Sports' Bruce Feldman for a special episode of the Audible. What does Morris think went wrong with Snead's career? Listen to the conversation below.
