Charles Woodson
There were a lot of expectations on Charles Woodson when he entered the NFL.  At the University of Michigan he became one of the few defensive players to win the Heisman, so when he was drafted fourth overall by the Oakland Raiders he was expected to make an immediate impact.

He did.

Woodson would win the Defensive Rookie of the Year and went to four straight Pro Bowls establishing himself as one of the top Corners in the League.  While he would become disenchanted with upper management, he changed teams and moved to Green Bay, where he had another string of four consecutive Pro Bowls, won the Defensive Player of the Year (in 2009) and helped the Packers win the Super Bowl.  It was also in Green Bay where he would lead the league in picks, a feat he accomplished twice while patrolling the Frozen Tundra.

Fittingly, he would finish his career in Oakland earning his ninth Pro Bowl in his final season.
