He was "born" to play the position…how many times have you heard that cliché? It's true when it comes to Peyton Manning. The son of the South's most storied college quarterback, Peyton came out of the womb with a passer's mentality and the skills to match, and he's got the all-time touchdown record to prove it.

He then became the top pick of the New Orleans Saints, embarking on a star-crossed 14-year NFL career that also saw him suit up for the Houston Oilers and Minnesota Vikings. A hard-hitting shortstop in his youth, Archie could have chosen professional baseball as a career path, having been drafted by the Atlanta Braves after graduating from Drew High School—and later by the Kansas City Royals and Chicago White Sox.
