2010: DT George Uko
Uko played three seasons at USC and had a solid career but wasn’t drafted in the NFL. He bounced around a few teams and won a Super Bowl with the Denver Broncos, but his career never really went as expected.

Westerman went to Auburn before transferring to Arizona State and was drafted in the fifth round of the NFL Draft in 2016. He lasted a couple of seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals but is out of football now. His career never materialized the way we thought it would.
