A first round draft pick in 1999 by the Philadelphia Eagles, and the second player overall, Donovan McNabb has raised the bar with superstar accomplishments on and off the playing field. He took over as the Eagles starting quarterback in game 10 as a rookie and never looked back.
His .612 (98-62-1) win percentage as a starter would rank near the top among active QBs. His 98 wins rank 12th in NFL history behind eight Hall of Famers and three sure-fire selections (Breet Favre, Tom Brady, Peyton Manning). During his first 11 seasons, Donovan helped resurrect an Eagles franchise that finished 3-13 in 1998, the year before he joined the club. With Donovan under center, the club posted one of the best records in the NFL, averaging 10 wins per season. In addition, the Eagles went to the postseason eight times, won the NFC East Division five times, played in five NFC Championship Games, and had their first Super Bowl berth in 24 years. Donovan joined his third team in three years when the Redskins traded Donovan to Minnesota on July 27, 2011.
Despite leading Minnesota to five 4th quarter leads in the first six games, the Vikings managed just one victory and inserted Christian Ponder, their 2011 1st round selection, under center. While best known as one of the top players in the National Football League, Donovan, 35, has parlayed that platform to a more expansive audience. In both the profit and non-profit worlds, Donovan’s influence has risen above the playing field and into the boardroom.The portfolio of companies that he has endorsed has run the gamut of food and beverage, athletic footwear, financial investing, cars, communications, and pharmaceuticals.
Over the years he has trumpeted the benefits of the following companies: NFL Youth Football, Nike, Reebok, Campbell’s Soup, Verizon, Novartis Pharmaceuticals, GlucoThin M.D., Visa, CapitalOne, DirecTV, Yardbarker, Hershey’s, IHOP, EA Sports, Sony, Pepsi, Mountain Dew, Dr. Pepper, vitaminwater, Cadillac, Miller Ford, Sunoco, AirTran Airways, Mounted Memories, Steiner Sports/Syracuse, and McDonalds. Donovan’s business acumen has been developed over the years.
In 2002, just three years after his graduation from Syracuse University with a degree in communications, he was named to the school’s Board of Trustees.
He has put that degree to proper use by becoming a broadcaster for NFL Network.
