2024 Football Eligibles

Dubbed “Pacman”, Adam Jones was a highly touted First Round Pick from West Virginia but he would become more known for off-field problems than his on-field accomplishments.  This doesn’t mean that Jones didn’t have a lot of gridiron success as he would be named a First Team All-Pro in 2014 as a Cincinnati Bengal as a Returner.  That year, he would lead…

Antonio Gates was a dual sports star in high school in football and basketball and would play the latter at Easter Michigan, The College of the Sequoias, and at Kent State.  He was not drafted in the NBA, but despite not playing football in college, his agent arranged a pro football tryout with the San Diego Chargers, who would sign him…
Brandon Marshall was a really good Wide Receiver, but was he a Hall of Fame wide out?
An undrafted player from Shippensburg, Brent Grimes was a World Bowl Champion with the Hamburg Sea Devils before he achieved greatness in the NFL.
The 2008 Bronco Nagurski Trophy winner from the University of Texas had a good start as a pro at the Washington Redskins where he was a Pro Bowl Selection as a rookie.  Orakpo returned to the Pro Bowl next year and again in 2013 and as a Redskin he twice had a ten Quarterback Sack season.  The Linebacker would sign…
Chris Ivory played at Washington State for three years but transferred to Tiffin University after being dismissed from the Cougars for violating team rules.  Ivory went undrafted, though not because he wasn't good or was playing at a Division II school.  He was injured through most of his senior year, thus scaring off potential drafters. New Orleans invited him to camp, where the…
A Second Round Pick from Cincinnati, Conner Barwin played his first four seasons with the Houston Texans, where he was the starter at Right Outside Linebacker for the latter two years.  Barwin had an 11.5 Sack year in 2011 but would have a better year in 2014 when he was in his second year with the Philadelphia Eagles.  That year he had…
Corey Graham had a long career where he was primarily listed as a Defensive Back, but he was named to the Pro Bowl in 2011 as a Special Teams Player.
While Derek Anderson is best known for a meltdown, he had at a post-game press conference when asked why he was seen laughing on the sidelines after his team was blown out on a national television.   That aside, we are talking about a 13-year veteran who may have been predominantly a backup but was a Pro Bowl Selection in 2007…
Derrick Johnson played all but his last season of his career with the Kansas City Chiefs and the former 1stRound Pick from Texas would slowly work his way to the upper echelon of NFL Linebackers and he would be named to four Pro Bowls out of five from 2011 to 2015.  Johnson, who was also named a First Team All-Pro in…
One of the best offensive skill players in Boise State history, Running Back, Doug Williams, was taken late in the First Round (31stOverall) in 2012 by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and for a time, it looked like they had a mega-star on their hands.
Eric Berry played his college ball at Tennessee, where he was one of the most prolific Defensive Backs in school history.  With the Volunteers, Berry was a two-time Consensus All-American and was the SEC Defensive Player of the Year in 2008, so it was little wonder that Berry was the first Defensive Back taken in the 2010 Draft.
Glover Quin came out of the University of New Mexico, where he was drafted in the Fourth Round in 2009 by the Houston Texans.  In the four years he was there, he played at various positions (Left Cornerback, Strong Safety, Free Safety), and while he did well, he did not take the gridiron by storm.
With the 12th Pick of the 2006 NFL Draft, the Baltimore Ravens drafted a beast in the name of Haloti Ngata to stuff up the middle.  Ngata was a starter immediately and from 2009 to 2013 was named to the Pro Bowl and he was a First Team All Pro in both 2010 and 2011.  An incredible fit for the…
Jamaal Charles played most of his pro career with the Kansas City Chiefs and it was at Arrowhead where he would have five 1,000 Rushing Yard Seasons, two of which would secure him a First Team All-Pro Selection in 2010 and 2013. Charles was considered an upper end Running Back who would have three seasons where he exceeded 1,200 Rushing Yards…
Jermaine Gresham was an All-American at Oklahoma in 2008, and despite missing all of 2009 due to a knee injury, he was taken in the First Round by the Cincinnati Bengals, with the 21stOverall Pick in 2010.
Towson did not produce many Pro Football stars, but Jermon Bushrod was one of the exceptions to that rule.
While Jonathan Stewart was never an elite Running Back in the National Football League, the former Oregon Duck would have a long career mostly with the Carolina Panthers where he was used mostly in tandem with other Backs.  Stewart’s best season was in 2009 where he had his only 1,000 Yard Rushing Season (1,133) and was his ninth overall.  He would rush…
