Rick Mirer

The second pick of the 1993 draft by Seattle behind <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="PESPT000650" title="Drew Bledsoe" href="/topic/sports/drew-bledsoe-PESPT000650.topic">Drew Bledsoe</a> (New England), Mirer had a long career but not a good one.  In his four seasons with Seattle, Mirer threw 41 touchdowns and 56 interceptions. Mirer has the distinction of being a huge bust for two teams. The Bears traded a first-round pick to Seattle for Mirer in 1997, but he never won the starting job. Mirer posted a 24-44 record as starter in 12 seasons. He never passed for 300 yards in a game, had 50 career touchdown passes versus 76 interceptions and a quarterback rating of 63.5. He played in 18 games over his last seven seasons.
