James David Druckenmiller, Jr. (born September 19, 1972 in Allentown, Pennsylvania) is a retired American football quarterback.

In his career Druckenmiller played for the San Francisco 49ers, Miami Dolphins, and Indianapolis Colts of the National Football League, as well as the Memphis Maniax of the XFL and the Los Angeles Avengers of the Arena Football League.


College career

After attending high school at Northampton Area High School in Pennsylvania, Druckenmiller prepped at Fork Union Military Academy in Fork Union, Virginia before committing to Virginia Tech.

Druckenmiller started two years at quarterback for the Virginia Tech Hokies football team. As a senior, he won all-Big East accolades. Druckenmiller's Hokies won the Big East Conference championship in 1995 and 1996. In 1995, they defeated the Texas Longhorns in the Sugar Bowl. He was legendary for being able to lift weights alongside his linemen.

Professional career


National Football League (NFL)

Druckenmiller was drafted in the first round (26th overall) of the 1997 NFL Draft by the San Francisco 49ers. He played in only six games, completing 21 of 52 pass attempts while throwing only one touchdown pass and four interceptions. Following this unsuccessful stint in San Francisco, he was traded to the Miami Dolphins and subsequently released. He is considered to be one of the worst draft picks in the first round ever since the AFL- NFL merger of 1970.

Later career

In 2001, he saw limited action as a backup with the Arena Football League's Los Angeles Avengers.

He also played for the Memphis Maniax of the XFL in Memphis, TN in 2001.
