It sounds like some kind of sick joke but we assure you it is not: Former NFL Draft bust Ryan Leaf is writing three books – a trilogy, if you will – about his football career and life after football that has included drug abuse. The first one about Leaf’s time at Washington State is scheduled for an October 2011 release.
Leaf was the second overall pick of the 1998 NFL Draft behind Peyton Manning and is generally considered the greatest draft bust of all time – at least until JaMarcus Russell came along. Working at a Vancouver fishing lodge last year at this time, Leaf currently lives in his hometown of Great Falls, MT. Ryan Leaf profile
