Offensive tackle Nate Solder, drafted 17th in the first round by New England Patriots, 2011 draft: Solder has become one of the most vital members of the Patriot offensive line, protecting Tom Brady at a moment’s notice. Solder has started over 60 games before injuries ended his season.

Offensive tackle David Bakhtiari, drafted 109th in fourth round by Green Bay Packers, 2013 draft: No one was really expecting Bakhtiari to make this type of leap to be a starting offensive tackle, but almost immediately since he came into the league he has had no trouble at all meeting that and being responsible for protecting Aaron Rodgers.

Kicker Mason Crosby, drafted 193rd in sixth round by Green Bay Packers, 2007 draft: Crosby has probably been the most productive Buff in the NFL the past decade, knocking in field goal after field goal as one of the most reliable placekickers in the pros.
