11. Art Schlicter, QB
Art Schlicter was drafted fourth overall in the 1982 NFL Draft by the Baltimore Colts, but his career went down hill before if it really even started.
Of all things to ruin a career, gambling was the one Art Schlicter blew his career on. It was bad, too, not just your run-of-the-mill slot machines. Schlicter got deep in with the sharks, and to save himself from death or having to throw NFL games, Schlicter turned to the FBI and NFL to help get him out of trouble.
If you have to go to the FBI and your employer to save your life because of gambling debt, you have a serious problem.
Schlicter only played two years in the league and never won a game as a starting quarterback.
Schlicter battled gambling after his NFL career was over. Schlicter was sentenced to 12 years in prison in 2012 for a ticket scam, where he promised people tickets in exchange for money. Needless to day, he never gave them any tickets.
