Why didn't I see big Mike Williams, 4th overall pick cut from Buffalo and Jacksonville, on that list Biggems?
I left off a lot of Longhorns.....I made that list to show that there were several Longhorns who have done well in the pros....the poster I responded to said only a few Longhorns were successful in the pros. My list was extensive enough to prove my point that the Horns do produce a fairly large number of quality players.
Sure there are guys who don't really live up to the hype like Mike Williams, Quentin Jammer, Winfred Tubbs, Stanley Richard, Chris Akins, Taje Allen, Mike Adams, etc.....
Some guys who weren't really busts, but didn't have long or great careers
Robert Reed (went to my HS and played for the Eagles)
Chris Samuels (went to my HS and played for the Chargers)
Keith and Kerry Cash (they had decent careers, but injuries cut them short)
BTW.....one player I didn't even post, but he was way before Mack Brown and is my fave all-time college player....had a very solid NFL Career (not HOF, but he made a decent impact)....ERIC METCALF
DE Shane Dronett was also before Mack Brown and was a very good NFL player, along with Britt Hager and John Hagy
Oh and if you want old school.....I will give you a few names....
