"You can go to the NFL if you go to THIS school?"

Post by GameFAQSAggie » January 24th, 2011, 10:39 am

Sometimes you will talk to people how we have a few former players in the NFL, and during the next two weeks and during the Super Bowl, how we have someone playing. Though most believe it, a few you run into, who don't follow football closely, will tell you that they thought you couldn't go to the NFL if you go this school.

Just for fun, along with Jarrett Bush from our school, here are some of his teammates who similarly played for teams, where some students those places(not football fans, at least not diehard fans, maybe casual fans) hear about them and are like "I thought you couldn't go to the NFL if you went to this school".

Safety Nick Collins, Bethune Cookman
Corner Tramon Williams, Louisiana Tech
Linebacker Eric Walden, Middle Tennessee State
Receiver Donald Driver, Alcorn State
Receiver James Jones, San Jose State
Running Back John Kuhn, Shippensburg
Running Back James Starks, Buffalo
Offensive lineman TJ Lang, Eastern Michigan
Offensive ilneman Nick Mcdonald, Grand Valley State
Offensive lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith, Idaho State

and from the opponent, the Steelers, lets look at the guys they have who went to schools were people ask "You can go to the NFL from THIS school?"
Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, Miami Ohio
Quarterback Charlie Batch, Eastern Michigan
Running Back Mewelde Moore, Tulane
Running Back Isaac Redman, Bowie State
Fullback David Johnson, Arkansas State
Defensive lineman Aaron Smith, Northern Colorado
Defensive lineman Steve McClendon,Troy
LInebacker James Harrison, Kent State
Corner Ike Taylor, Louisiana-Lafayette

I would imagine that none of the scouting services gave any of
these players more than 3 stars coming out of high school. It
goes to show that their are good players out there if the coaches
do their homework and beat the bushes to find them

that's also probably why even huge football fans haven't heard of most of these guys, and most of these guys won't play more than 2 or 3 plays all game, if at all.

Seriously? Most of them are starters or major contributors.
