Troy Smith  

Former Heisman Award-Winning NFL Quarterback

Troy James Smith is an American former gridiron football quarterback. He played college football at Ohio State, was recognized as an All-American, and won the Heisman Trophy in 2006.

He was drafted by the Baltimore Ravens in the fifth round of the 2007 NFL Draft, and also played for the NFL's San Francisco 49ers, the UFL's Omaha Nighthawks, and the CFL's Montreal Alouettes.

In 2010, Adam Rittenberg of ESPN listed Smith as the "Big Ten player of the decade." As a graduating senior, Smith entered professional football in the 2007 NFL Draft. Despite winning the Heisman Trophy, Smith saw his draft stock drop considerably after the 41-14 loss to Florida in the 2007 BCS National Championship Game. At 5'11", his height (considered smaller than ideal) was cited as a liability.
