Almost a week after the 2011 NFL Draft rookies are still waiting to sign with their teams because of a lock out looming. 

But what always interests me are the players that come out of small schools to have big career in the NFL.

These players didn't have the superstar careers in high school or college and they never got scholarships to big schools like other superstars.

Throughout their careers they had chips on there shoulders and became some of the best players ever to play in the NFL.

One of the best examples is the best wide receiver ever out of the NFL Jerry Rice. Rice went to Mississippi Valley State.

Throughout his career Rice had a chip on his shoulder and that drove him to become a legend in the NFL.

Here are the top 11 small school players who could make it big in the NFL.
