Arkansas Razorbacks: Who Are the Best Razorbacks to Play in the NFL?

Everyone has their favorite Razorbacks moment. The Razorbacks had memorable rivalries against the Texas Longhorns and Texas A&M Aggies in the old Southwest Conference. 

Younger Hogs fans may favor the thrillers against LSU or Ole Miss that have come since the University of Arkansas' move to the Southeastern Conference in 1992.

For the sake of brevity, I've narrowed my list of the greatest Hogs to play in the National Football League down to the last 25 years. These are the legends of the Arkansas falls who have made us smile and shake our heads with wonder as we pondered the greatness that we watched.

We have spilled our popcorn as we leapt from our armchairs to high-five someone across the room.  We muted our televisions and turned up our radios so we could hear Paul Eels call out "Ohhh Myyyy! Touchdown Arkansas!".

We have watched with pride as these men walked across the platform to shake the NFL commissioner's hand as they were drafted into the game that we watch on Sundays.

Not all of these Hogs have had stellar NFL careers.  Some were not given a chance by the teams that drafted them, and some have simply not had time since being drafted to establish a legacy.

But these are the outstanding Razorbacks of the last 25 years who have added their name to an NFL roster.
