Miami Hurricanes in the NFL

Yahoo Contributor Network

The Miami Hurricanes are one of the best college teams for producing NFL talent. The Hurricanes hold the record for the most players selected in the first round of the draft, with six taken in the first round of the 2004 NFL Draft.

Note: All players listed were verified by the NFL official website.

Top 3 Hurricanes in the NFL:

1. Ray Lewis,LB, Baltimore Ravens -

In 1996, the best linebacker that I have personally been able to watch was drafted in the first round at No. 26 overall, and that would be none other than Ray Lewis. Lewis brings an intensity to the field each game that can't be matched. He is always playing with a chip on his shoulder, and you can tell it from just watching him. He is not only one of the greatest to play for the Canes but also in the NFL. Lewis is a 13-time Pro Bowl player and will end up in the Pro Football Hall of Fame when it's all said and done.

2. Andre Johnson,WR, Houston Texans - Andre Johnson was the most exciting receiver to watch while he was playing for the Miami Hurricanes -- and that still has not changed. I rank Johnson the third best receiver in the NFL today behind Calvin Johnson and Larry Fitzgerald. Andre Johnson, so far in his NFL career, is a five-time Pro Bowler, with a total of 9,775 yards receiving and 52 touchdowns.

3. Ed Reed, S, Baltimore Ravens - Ed Reed joins Lewis on the Baltimore Ravens, and they are two of the main reasons the Ravens' defense has the reputation it has. Reed is a ball hawk with 58 career interceptions. Lewis was another one who was very exciting to watch while playing for the Hurricanes. Reed is an eight-time Pro Bowler with 463 tackles, 93 assisted tackles, 58 interceptions, and 11 forced fumbles.
