Although a number of great football players have come through the gates of the University of Oregon over the course of the last century, only a select few have succeeded in few NFL. Dan Fouts, Norm Van Brocklin, Dave Wilcox, and Gary Zimmerman are among those that were able to thrive after they left Eugene.
Furthermore, as the program gained momentum during the years that Mike Bellotti was at the helm, the school saw an increase in the number of athletes that made their way to the pros.
While Joey Harrington and Akili Smith are among the notable Oregon players that have been busts in the NFL, the last decade has also seen a handful of ex-Ducks prevail as Pro-Bowl and All-Pro selections.
In this slideshow I will rank the nine best former Ducks that are currently on NFL rosters. To qualify for this list, these athletes must have played at least two full seasons in the NFL. These rankings will be based on their performance in the pros, not at Oregon.
