183. Darren Sharper
Although he became known for the sexual assault case in 2014 (which alleged that he was a serial rapist), Darren Sharper was known mostly on the gridiron for his defensive skills and for leading the National Football League in Interception Return Yards three times.

Sharper would also lead the NFL in picks twice, return Touchdowns three times and was a five tie Pro Bow who helped the New Orleans Saints win their first Super Bowl. Does this eliminate any issues that he had in his personal life? We are curious to find out too.
