His most successful years were 2002, when he led Ohio State to the national championship, and 2003. He was known for his clutch play, smart decision making, and accuracy. Krenzel's overall record with Ohio State is 24-3 as a starter.

Krenzel was drafted in the 2004 NFL Draft by the Chicago Bears, for whom he played the 2004 season. Despite poor passing statistics, Krenzel won his first three starts at quarterback with the Bears, including a win over the San Francisco 49ers, which was at the time starting Ken Dorsey at quarterback, the same quarterback that started for the Miami Hurricanes during the 2003 National Championship game. However, he lost his final two starts with the Bears and injured his ankle, ending his season. In 2005, he was cut by the Bears in the offseason and he signed with the Bengals. He was the third string quarterback on the team behind Carson Palmer and Jon Kitna. He was released in May 2006 due to an elbow injury that he sustained that eventually required Tommy John surgery. Craig has yet to play again in the NFL, though he has stated that he hopes for one more shot at football. He also shares the distinction of being a two-time Fiesta Bowl MVP with fellow Ohio State Buckeye A. J. Hawk.

Krenzel now works as a commentator on 97.1 The Fan in Columbus, Ohio. Craig is known for his bit known as the "Mike Tomczak Story" Craig is also a company spokesman for John Deere Power Equipment and has acted in several commercial spots.
