2023 Football Eligibles

From UCLA, Alterraun Verner was a fourth round pick in 2010 by the Tennessee Titans.  The Cornerback would have 94 Combined Tackles as a rookie, which is a decent number.  That would be a career high but in 2013 he would go to the Pro Bowl and earn a Second Team All Pro nod on the strength of his five…
A First Round Pick from USC, Brian Cushing would play nine seasons professionally for the Houston Texans where he would be a Pro Bowl Selection as a rookie and win the coveted Defensive Rookie of the Year Award.  That would be his highwater mark as he would suffer a suspension due to PED use, a change from Inside to Outside…
Carson Palmer was the 2002 Heisman Trophy winner and the USC Quarterback was considered a can’t miss prospect in the NFL.  Palmer would be drafted first overall by the Cincinnati Bengals and the organization would take their time with the pivot as they did not play him in his rookie season choosing to start him in 2004 and in 2005…
Chris Johnson had an incredible three-year start (2008-10) in the National Football League where he was named a Pro Bowl each year and provided the Tennessee Titans with the potent running attack that every NFL team salivates for.  The former East Carolina Pirate’s best year was his sophomore campaign (2009) where he would vault into rarified air with a 2,000…
Splitting his ten-year career evenly between the Detroit Lions and Seattle Seahawks Cliff Avril slowly got better season by season to the point that at the end of his Lions run he was considered by some sportswriters to be a potential Pro Bowler but that was not meant to be for him in the Motor City.  Avril had an 11…
Danny Woodhead would set the NCAA single season rushing record at tiny Chadron State when he went for 2,756 Yards and the following year, he would break the all-time NCAA record (though since broken) for Rushing Yards.  These accomplishments garnered him the Halton Hill Trophy those two years, which was annually given to the best player in Division II. 
Sometimes when a player coins a phrase about their abilities on the field there might be some figment of exaggeration involved.  When Darrell Revis described his spot on the gridiron as “Revis Island”; a place where no Wide Receiver would dare travel to.  This is no hyperbole, Revis was that good!

Darren McFadden went down in history at the University of Arkansas as one of their best Running Backs ever.  McFadden was a two-time Doak Walker Award winner as the best Running Back in College Football (2006 & 2007) and he would be the fourth overall pick in the 2008 Draft.  McFadden was not nearly as successful in the NFL as…
DeAngelo Hall came with lofty expectation as the 2004 8th Overall Pick from Virginia Tech and in the first few years of his career with the Atlanta Falcons he did not disappoint.  Hall was a Pro Bowl Selection for Atlanta in both 2005 and 2006 and he would be traded to Oakland before the 2008 season.  It was a terrible…
DeMarco Murray did well in his first two seasons with the Dallas Cowboys but he would have a breakout season in 2013 when he went to his first Pro Bowl and rushed for over 1,000 Yards and had 53 Receptions.  Murray would then explode in 2014 with the greatest season of his year as he maximized being the Running Back…
Dwight Freeney was one of the best players to come out of the University of Syracuse and he wasted no time after being drafted by the Indianapolis Colts in the first round (11th Overall) showcasing that he was an excellent pass rusher as he would lead the National Football League in Tackles for Loss and Forced Fumbles as a rookie, which…
Easily the best professional player named Elvis, Elvis Dumervil set a standard that will make it hard for other “Elvi” to follow. 
Eric Decker had a nice career in the National Football League where he would have three seasons (two with Denver and one with the New York Jets) where he went over 1,000 Receiving Yards.  Decker helped the Broncos make the Super Bowl XLVIII (though they did not win) and he would have 5,816 Receiving Yards.  Decker never made a Pro…
Eric Weems only caught 123 passes over his career (120 with Atlanta) bitt his true value took place as a Returner.  In both 2009 and 2010, Weems went over the 1,000 mark in Kick Return Yards, the latter of which earned him a trip to the Pro Bowl.  He would have 5,354 Return Yards over his career.
Eric Wood played directly in front of the (many) Buffalo Bills Quarterbacks for eight of his nine seasons after playing at Right Guard during his rookie year.  Wood did well at Center and was named to the Pro Bowl in 2015 but had to prematurely retire after 2017 due to neck concerns.  He played 120 Games and started them all.
James Harrison went undrafted from Kent State in 2002 and while he played well there he did not gain a lot of looks from NFL scouts who feared that he was to short (6’ 0) and too light (240 lbs) to be an effective Linebacker at football’s highest level.  The Steelers gave him a shot and he was and on…
This one is very interesting. Jay Cutler was a very talented Quarterback and over his professional career he posted some very good statistical numbers to back that claim. 
Jeremy Maclin had a nice career in the NFL where he would have five straight seasons (2010-15) of accumulating at least 800 Receiving Yards, two of which would reach four digits.  Maclin’s best season was his last with the team that drafted him, the Philadelphia Eagles where his 1,318 Yards were ninth overall.  Maclin would move on to Kansas City…
The Cleveland Browns did not have a lot to cheer about during the time that Joe Thomas played there (2007-17) as they went through numerous Quarterbacks and other offensive weapons.  That was such a crime as Thomas was the finest Left Tackle of the game for the decade he played in Cleveland and he was the perfect piece to build…
