Quarterback Jake Locker, picked 8th in first round of 2011 draft with Tennessee Titans: Locker saw some time as a starting quarterback; it didn’t work out great, but how many Pac-12 quarterbacks have been starters for multiple seasons?

Linebacker Donald Butler, picked 79th in third round of 2010 draft with San Diego Chargers: Butler has enjoyed a productive career with the Chargers. Although he’s currently in a bit of limbo, Butler’s contributions can’t be understated.

Linebacker Mason Foster, picked 84th in third round of 2011 draft with Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Foster has been a consistent linebacker since arriving in the NFL, holding the middle for a pretty solid Tampa defense.

Safety Dashon Goldson, picked 126th in fourth round of 2007 draft with San Francisco 49ers: Goldson was key lynchpin of San Francisco’s defense at one point, grabbing interceptions and making crucial open field tackles.

Cornerback Desmond Trufant, picked 22nd in first round of 2013 draft with Atlanta Falcons: Trufant is one of the best defenders in the league and has become a dynamic cover corner in the league. Trufant has been named to numerous Pro Bowls.
