Quarterback Mark Sanchez, picked 5th in 1st round of 2009 draft with New York Jets: Sanchez hasn’t had the greatest career, but he did manage to make it to two NFC Championships, so he’s definitely had his moments.

Tight end Jordan Cameron, picked 102nd in 4th round of 2011 draft by Cleveland Browns: Cameron has become one of the best tight ends in the business in recent years, becoming a very reliable pass catcher at the position.

Defensive lineman Jurrell Casey, picked 77th in 3rd round of 2011 draft by Tennessee Titans: Casey is fast emerging as a rising defensive tackle, and his abilities would probably be better recognized by most of the league if he played on a better team. He still managed a Pro Bowl appearance.

Linebacker Rey Maualuga, picked 38th in 2nd round of 2009 draft by Cincinnati Bengals: It took awhile but Maualuga eventually found his groove as one of the most reliable linebackers in the league. His defense these past few seasons has been outstanding in the middle of the field.
