    I don't believe Johnson or Brunell were backups except during the first couple of years which is normal in college as you wait for the upper classmen to graduate.

    For those interested in Johnson's stats... I stand corrected... sort of.

    Born in Marietta, Georgia,[1] Brad Johnson attended Charles D. Owen High School in Black Mountain, North Carolina. At Owen High School, Johnson played football and basketball; he received All-American honors as quarterback on the football team and all-state honors as a member of the basketball team. Among his teammates on the basketball team was future NBA player Brad Daugherty.[2]

    After graduating from Owen High School in 1987, Johnson attended Florida State University. From 1987 to 1989, Johnson played on the Florida State Seminoles men's basketball team and started 11 games as a freshman. In 1988, Johnson joined the football team (under coach Bobby Bowden) at Florida State as a redshirt freshman and served as holder in every game and played two games as quarterback.[2] The 1988 Florida State football team won the 1989 Sugar Bowl.

    In 1989 as a sophomore, Johnson was third-string quarterback behind Peter Tom Willis and Casey Weldon; Johnson completed 7 of 12 passes for 67 yards.[3] Johnson won the 1990 Fiesta Bowl title with the Seminoles. As a junior in 1990, Johnson started the first five games of the season before being replaced by Weldon. With a 4-1 record starting those games, Johnson finished the 1990 season with 109-for-163 passing for a career-high 1,136 yards with 8 touchdowns and 5 interceptions.[4] For the third consecutive season with Johnson, Florida State won a bowl game, the Blockbuster Bowl. Johnson would play nine games (with one start) as a senior in 1991.[2] On 37-for-61 passing for 462 yards, Johnson passed for 5 touchdowns and 3 interceptions, and Florida State won the Cotton Bowl Classic in 1992.[5]

    Legit question.

    I was just listing the few who had been drafted later and had success. The odds aren't very good, IMO.
