Spergon Wynn III (born August 10, 1978) is a former American and Canadian football quarterback. He was drafted by the Cleveland Browns in the sixth round of the 2000 NFL Draft. He played college football at Southwest Texas State.
Wynn's shortened NFL career gained much attention in the early 21st century from NFL historians as they examined the 2000 draft and noted how Wynn was the last quarterback picked in the draft before Tom Brady (199th pick by New England Patriots), three time Super Bowl Champion and seven time Pro Bowler.
Wynn was originally going to play for the University of Minnesota, but he transferred to play quarterback for Texas State University–San Marcos/Southwest Texas State University between 1998 and 1999. In these two years, Wynn piled up 3,497 yards passing, good for sixth on Southwest Texas State's record books. In 1998, Wynn threw for 1,851 yards and 10 touchdowns. In 1999, Wynn was selected to the All-Southland Conference second team after throwing for 1646 yards and 14 touchdowns for the Bobcats.
Wynn was drafted by the Cleveland Browns in the 6th round (183rd overall) in 2000. He was one of six (Wynn, Giovanni Carmazzi, Tee Martin, Chad Pennington, Marc Bulger, and Chris Redman) quarterbacks selected ahead of future Super Bowl and NFL MVP Tom Brady in the 2000 NFL draft. Wynn proceeded to play for the Browns in 2000, seeing action in 7 games. including one start - a 48-0 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. With the Browns, Wynn went 22 for 54 (40.7%) passing, for 167 yards, no touchdowns, one interception, and a passer rating of 41.2.
Following the 2000 season, September 3, 2001, Wynn was traded to the Minnesota Vikings, along with RB Travis Prentice, in exchange for draft picks in the 2002 and 2003 NFL drafts. Wynn was a third string backup to Daunte Culpepper and Todd Bouman in the 2001 and 2002 seasons and played in the last three games of the 2001 season, starting 2 of them. This was due to season ending injuries to both Culpepper and Bouman.
After his 2002 stint with the Minnesota Vikings, Wynn made his way north to Canada to play for the BC Lions. He was the Lions' backup and occasionally third-string quarterback for the 2003 and 2004 seasons, completing 67 of 99 passes for 894 yards, 6 touchdowns, and one interception. He also rushed for 2 touchdowns and 145 yards on 36 attempts.
