250. Jessie Armstead

Jessie Armstead played for the University of Miami, where the Linebacker was a key force in the Hurricanes NCAA Championship in 1989 and 1991.  A torn ACL saw Armstead tumble in the 1993 Draft, but the New York Giants took him in the 8th Round, and a couple of years later, he was a starter for the G-Men.  

From 1997 to 2001, Armstead was a Pro Bowl Selection and one of the leaders of the Giants Defense.  He was named a First Team All-Pro in 1997, and in the first year that Tackles for Loss were recorded (1999), he was the NFL leader.  Armstead played his final two seasons with the Washington Redskins.
