2025 Football Eligibles

A Sixth Round Pick from Howard in 2006, Bethea helped Indianapolis win the Super Bowl as a rookie as a starter. Staying with the Colts for eight seasons, Bethea went to two Pro Bowls in Indianapolis (2007 & 2009) and had five seasons where he cracked at least 100 Combined Tackles. Bethea went on to play for the San Francisco 49ers for…
Aqib Talib was the 20thOverall Pick in 2008, but the former Kansas Jayhawk struggled early to live up to expectations.  Winning the starting job at Left Cornerback for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in his sophomore year, Talib did well, but it was not until 2012, when he was traded to the New England Patriots where his star began to rise.
A Second Team All-Sun Belt Selection from Troy at Safety, Brynden Trawick played Safety at college but was a backup in that capacity in the NFL.  Trawick found a role on Special Teams where he was a Pro Bowler in 2017 as a Tennessee Titan.  He also played for Baltimore and Oakland over a seven-season career.
Despite playing for a college juggernaut like Penn State, Linebacker Cameron Wake was not drafted in 2005.  He signed with the New York Giants as a Free Agent, but failed to make the team, but he continued to work out and hope for an opportunity, but it took a detour to Canada to get him to the NFL. Wake made the…
C.J. Anderson had a tough road to make the NFL.  Undrafted out of California, the Denver Broncos signed the Running Back, but he tore his MCL in training camp.  He rehabbed that injury and managed to play in five Games that year, and was involved in Denver’s Super Bowl loss to Seattle. Anderson moved up the depth chart in 2014 and was…
Darren Sproles was nicknamed “The Lightning Bug” and it was an absolute joy to watch the 5’ 6” Running Back frustrate opposing tacklers on a weekly basis. 
Over a 12-year career, Cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie had flashes of brilliance where he was twice named to the Pro Bowl. A First Rounder from Tennessee State, DRC’s first stop was the Arizona Cardinals, where he was an All-Rookie in 2008 and Pro Bowler in 2009.  After a decent 2010 season, Rodgers-Cromartie was traded to Philadelphia, though a move to the nickel…
Undrafted from Utah State in 2006, Donald Penn signed with the Minnesota Vikings but saw no action.  The Tampa Bay Buccaneers scooped him up, and he made their team in 2007,  starting 12 Games at Left Tackle. Penn was entrenched as their starter from then until 2013, going to the Pro Bowl in 2010.  He moved on to Oakland in 2014 and had…
Drafted in 2004 with the third overall pick by the San Diego Chargers, Eli Manning did not want to play for the Bolts, and he was quickly dealt to the New York Giants, where he would play his entire career.  A four-time Pro Bowl Selection, he would take the Giants to two Super Bowl Championships, both against the heavily favored New…
A two-time Mountain West Conference Defensive Player of the Year at Utah, Eric Weddle was drafted in the Second Round in 2007 by the San Diego Chargers.  Weddle took over as the starting Free Safety in his sophomore season, and he would play for the Chargers for nine seasons, with three of them earning him a trip to the Pro Bowl.  He…
James Develin was undrafted from Brown in 2010 and bounced from the Oklahoma City Yard Dawgz of the Arena League to the Florida Tuskers of the United Football League before he landed a spot on the practice squad of the Cincinnati Bengals.
One of the best football players, regardless of the position that Central Michigan ever produced, has to be Joe Staley.

Bennett went undrafted out of Texas A&M in 2009 but was signed by the Seattle Seahawks, though he was released after a brief run on the practice squad.  The Tampa Bay Buccaneers claimed him, where he made the team and as a backup Defensive End. Bennett became a starter in 2011, and in 2012, he had his best year as a Buccaneer…
Mike Pouncey, the twin brother of Maurkice Pouncey, was an NCAA Champion with the University of Florida in 2009, where he was considered one of the top Offensive Linemen in the 2011 Draft.  The Miami Dolphins agreed and grabbed with the 16th Overall Pick, and he went to three Pro Bowls as a Dolphin.   Playing mostly at Center, Pouncey was also used…
