I guess it really isn't trivia since I don't know the answer but this is a question that has been bugging me. If someone could answer it and get it off of my mind that would be much appreciated.
With Carson Palmer looking to be the #1 pick in the draft, I was wondering who was the last Heisman winner to get drafted #1 overall and when was it?

Figures it was the Bengals to draft the last Heisman #1. Wow, its been 7 years.
Yeah what a player he turned out to be! I can't blame him he had all the bad luck in the world. 2st he was drafted by the bengals they he blew out both of his acl's. Hopefully he saved his money. I heard that him and Rasamm Salaam are working out together for a come back seriously. Go Bills!

There was wide speculation that Ki-Jana offered the Bengals $500,000 not to draft him because he was afraid that his knees wouldn't hold up on the artificial turf that the Bengals played on at the time.
It turns out that he should've upped the offer, he was right.
