Alex Smith was the 1st overall pick in the 2005 NFL Draft by the 49ers and spent his first eight seasons with them. His tenure with the 49ers was marked by multiple coaching changes and offensive schemes, but he reached his potential after Jim Harbaugh became head coach in 2011.
Smith was traded to the Kansas City Chiefs in 2013, where he experienced a career resurgence under head coach Andy Reid. He led the Chiefs to multiple playoff appearances and was named to the Pro Bowl three times.
In 2018, Smith was traded to the Washington Football Team. However, his time in Washington was marked by a devastating leg injury that nearly ended his career. After a remarkable recovery, Smith returned to the field in 2020 and was named NFL Comeback Player of the Year. He retired following the 2020 season.

Todd Collins played in the league for 16 seasons from 1995 to 2010. He spent the bulk of his career as a backup quarterback, most notably with the Kansas City Chiefs and Washington Redskins.
Collins initially started his career with the Buffalo Bills, but it was with the Redskins in 2007 where he had his most notable stretch of play. After starting quarterback Jason Campbell suffered an injury, Collins led the Redskins to four consecutive victories, securing a playoff berth.
Over his career, he passed for a total of 4547 yards, 22 touchdowns, and 24 interceptions.
Vonnie Holliday was selected in the 1st round, 19th overall, by the Green Bay Packers in the 1998 NFL Draft. The defensive end made an immediate impact, earning All-Rookie honors.
Holliday had a 15-year career in the NFL, playing for multiple teams including the Packers, Kansas City Chiefs, Miami Dolphins, Denver Broncos, Washington Football Team, and the Arizona Cardinals.
Known for his pass-rushing skills, Holliday accumulated 62.5 sacks, 599 tackles, and 9 forced fumbles over his career. He also had a knack for making plays in crucial situations, often coming up with big sacks or tackles for a loss.
Larry Johnson was drafted 27th overall by the Chiefs in the 2003 NFL Draft out of Penn State. During his time with the Chiefs, Johnson earned two Pro Bowl selections in 2005 and 2006 and was named a First-Team All-Pro in 2005. In 2006, he set an NFL record with 416 carries in a single season.
Johnson was known for his powerful running style, agility, and ability to break tackles. He amassed over 6,000 rushing yards and scored 55 rushing touchdowns during his career.
Despite his on-field accomplishments, Johnson faced several off-field issues, including legal problems and suspensions, which ultimately impacted his career. After leaving the Chiefs, Johnson had brief stints with the Cincinnati Bengals, Washington Football Team, and Miami Dolphins before exiting the NFL.
