9. Marcus Stroud

The Jaguars chose Marcus Stroud of the University of Georgia with their 13th overall pick in 2001, and he learned his craft coming off the bench in his rookie year.  That would not be the case in 2002 as he became a starting Defensive Tackle (usually on the left side), and from 2002 to 2007, he never appeared in a game that he didn't start in.

Stroud would be part of a powerful DT duo with John Henderson, and Stroud would go to three consecutive Pro Bowls (2003-05), with a Second Team All-Pro Selection coming in 2003.  He played with Jacksonville until 2007 when he was traded to Buffalo, and as a Jaguar, he would secure 22 Sacks with 279 Combined Tackles.
