Little known prospects that made it big


#1

My number one is Bubba Baker. A second round pick that flat out got after QBs from the day he stepped onto the Silverdome carpet.

Big play Clay.
Cliff Avril


#2

I remember James Hall being a pretty cool story, especially going to UofM. I always appreciated his effort and play.

Good topic idea BTW! I’ll try and come up with more.

PS Bring Back James Hall


#3

Jarad De’Vries had a pretty good career as more of a journeyman.

Jeff Hartings was a second rounder that worked out rather well…


#4

I think he had like 9 sacks one year…i think


#5

Even better – he had 11.5 in 2004.

In 2010 (with the Rams) he posted 10.5.


#6

Yeah, i was selling the guy short.

Cory Schlesinger kept the face mask manufacturer busy for quite awhile…


#7

Is this Lions only or league?


#8

Heres a couple that made a name for themselves, but not necessarily on the football field.

Pat Summerall…yes the announcer

Jack Kemp…the politician

Fred Biletnikoff…yeah, he did pretty well for himself on the field.


#9

Kurt Warner


#10

Dwayne Johnson


#11

Karl Mecklenburg


#12

John Randle.


#13

Warren Moon


#14

Mainly Lions, but there arent that many unless you go back a ways, so really League wide at this point.


#15

This is a good one. :clap:


#16

Priest Holmes. UDFA.

Tony Romo


#17

That guy won me a couple fantasy championships!


#18

Stephen Boyd


#19

Yeah, I couldn’t believe the Ravens let him go. He was starting to show. Dumber than SD getting rid of Brees.


#20

SB QB Brad Johnson was a 9th rd pick, i think.

John Unitas was a 9th round selection.

Bart Starr was a 17th rounder.
