There’s two Hall of Fame players in my latest installment of the best NFL players picked with each individual pick. There’s a couple more that I think belong in the Hall too, but they haven’t been voted in yet. We’ve got one star from four of the Steelers Super Bowl wins. Another was on the opposite end, playing in four Super Bowl losses with the Bills. The guy that was Johnny Unitas’s favorite target is also in here, along with Dan Marino’s favorite target. There’s an Eagles defensive end that started opposite Reggie White, and the quarterback whose injury helped Kurt Warner rise to fame is also on the list.
So, here’s the list of the bets NFL players I could find that were drafted with picks 221-240:
9th round-240th pick. Houston Oilers-Shawn Jefferson, WR, Central Florida, 1991
This one was a close call, I almost went with Larod Stephens-Howling just based on this season, since he made the Pro Bowl as the kickoff returner. If he keeps it up I think he could eventually overtake Jefferson. Although he never produced the kind of numbers you see from a go-to receiver, he was a really good second option. He had 40 or more catches in six of his 13 seasons in the NFL. He spent his first five seasons as Charger, and had 48 catches in 1995.
He signed with the Patriots in 1996, and spent four seasons there, finishing with 50 & 54 catches in his first two years with them. He set career highs in yardage (841 in 1997), average (22.7 in 1998), and touchdowns (6 in 1999) while with the Patriots. He went to Atlanta in 2000 and had a career high 60 catches. He started 27 games in three seasons with Falcons, then went to Detroit for one last season in 2003. In his career he had 470 catches for 7,023 yards, averaging 14.9 yards per catch, and had 29 touchdowns. He is now the Lions wide receivers coach.
Other notable players selected with the 240th pick in the draft: Tampa Bay Buccaneers-Gerald Carter, WR, Texas A&M, 1980; New England Patriots-Mark Keel, TE, Arizona, 1983; Tennessee Titans-Carlos Hall, DE, Arkansas, 2002; New Orleans Saints-Colby Bockwoldt, OLB, Brigham Young, 2004; San Diego Chargers-Brandon Siler, LB, Florida, 2007; Arizona Cardinals-LaRod Stephens-Howling, RB, Pittsburgh, 2009; 7-240. Indianapolis Colts-Kavell Conner, LB, Clemson, 2010
9th round-239th pick. Miami Dolphins-Jeff Cross, DE, Missouri, 1988
He’s got some pretty good company for this pick, but Jeff Cross is the one that stands out the most. He burst onto the scene in 1989, he had double digits in sacks in 1989 (10), 1990 (11.5), and 1993(10.5), and he barely missed the mark in 1994 (9.5). He was named to the Pro Bowl in 1990. He played nine years in the NFL, all with the Dolphins, from 1988-1996.
Among the others with this pick, Chuck Noll was a Hall of Fame coach, but only played seven years with the Browns and never made the Pro Bowl. He retired at 27 & then went into coaching. Gary Jones was mainly a backup safety with the Steelers, starting three games in four years. He signed with the Jets and started 23 games in two years before retiring.
Eric Heitmann has started 114 of 119 games played on the 49ers offensive line, and is currently their starting center. Tully Banta-Cain had 10 sacks last year, but he lost playing time to rookie Jermaine Cunningham this year. He still had five sacks in 2010. Eugene Amano has been a regular starter on the Titans offensive line for the last three years. He’s started 44 games since the 2008 season.
Other notable players picked 239th: Pittsburgh Steelers-Chuck Noll, G, Dayton, 1953; Miami Dolphins-Steve Clark, DE, Utah, 1982; Pittsburgh Steelers-Gary Jones, DB, Texas A&M, 1990; New England Patriots-Patrick Pass, RB, Georgia, 2000; San Francisco 49ers-Eric Heitmann, G, Stanford, 2002; New England Patriots-Tully Banta-Cain, LB, California, 2003; Tennessee Titans-Eugene Amano, C, Southeast Missouri State, 2004; Buffalo Bills-C.J. Ah You, DE, Oklahoma, 2007; New Orleans Saints-Sean Canfield, QB, Oregon State, 2010
10th round-238th pick. Pittsburgh Steelers-L.C. Greenwood, DE, Arkansas A & M, 1969
He’s one of two Steelers that I feel I can easily make a case for when arguing that he belongs in the Hall of Fame. He played his entire career for the Steelers from 1969 to 1981, playing in 170 games. He collected 73.5 sacks in his career, but those numbers are considered unofficial since the NFL didn’t make the sack an official stat until 1982. He played on all four of the Steelers Super Bowl championship teams in the 1970’s, made the Pro Bowl six times, and was named to the NFL’s 1970’s All Decade Team.
Among the others chosen with pick #238, Raheem Brock was not re-signed by the Colts this season, but had a resurgence with the Seahawks. He had a career high nine sacks this year.
Other notable players picked 238th: Oakland Raiders-Jim Rourke, T, Boston College, 1979; Philadelphia Eagles-Raheem Brock, DE, Temple, 2002; Atlanta Falcons-Demetrin Veal, DE, Tennessee, 2003
9th round-237th pick. New Orleans Saints-Brian Hansen, P, Sioux Falls, 1984
Although he never spent more than five years with one team, he lasted from 1984 to 1999 as a punter. He played for the Saints from 1984 to 1988. He sat out the 1989 season after getting cut, then came back with New England in 1990. He signed with the Browns in 1991 and stayed there for three years. He joined the New York Jets in 1994 and stuck around for five years. He had a career high 44.5 yard average with the Jets in 1996. He retired after spending part of the 1999 season with the redskins.
Other notable players picked 237th: San Diego Chargers-Alvin Garrett, WR, Angelo State, 1979; N.Y. Giants-Ali Haji-Sheikh, K, Michigan, 1983; Houston Oilers-Pat Coleman, WR, Mississippi, 1990; Atlanta Falcons-Todd McClure, C, Louisiana State, 1999; Dallas Cowboys-Alan Ball, CB/S, Illinois, 2007; New Orleans Saints-Adrian Arrington, WR, Michigan, 2008
9th round-236th pick. Indianapolis Colts-Howard Griffith, FB, Illinois, 1991
He spent his first two seasons on the Colts practice squad in 1991 & 1992, then joined the Rams in 1993. he started 10 games for them in 1994, then joined the expansion Carolina Panthers team in 1995. He started 21 games for them in two years before leaving for Denver in 1997. he started all but eight games for the Broncos from 1997 to 2000. He served as the lead blocker for Terrell Davis during his 2,000 yard season. He missed the 2001 season due to injury, then retired in 2002.
Other notable players picked 236th: N.Y. Giants-Ray Rhodes, DB, Tulsa, 1974; Philadelphia Eagles-Bob Clasby, DE, Notre Dame, 1983; Seattle Seahawks-Dexter Davis, DE, Arizona State, 2010
7th round-235th pick. Oakland Raiders-Ronald Curry, WR, North Carolina, 2002
He was a quarterback in college and converted to wide receiver when the Raiders drafted him. His numbers were a bit streakish, but he was injured in 2004 and 2005. He was only active for one game in 2002, had only 5 catches in 2003, but was having a breakout year in 2004 with 50 catches before he tore his achilles tendon. He tore the same achilles tendon in 2005, and had only two catches. In 2006 he started only four games, but had 62 catches. He followed that with 55 catches in 2007, but then slumped in 2008 and got cut in the offseason before 2009.
Other notable players picked 235th: Atlanta Falcons-Mike Horan, P, Long Beach State, 1982; San Diego Chargers-Mike Zordich, S, Penn State, 1986; Buffalo Bills-Carlton Bailey, LB, North Carolina, 1988; Minnesota Vikings-Matt Hatchette, WR, Langston, 1997; New York Jets-Derrick Ward, RB, Ottawa (Kans.), 2004; New York Jets-Chansi Stuckey, WR, Clemson, 2007; Detroit Lions-Zack Follett, LB, California, 2009
9th round-234th pick. Cincinnati Bengals-Mitchell Price, DB, Tulane, 1990
He made a name for himself by running a punt for a touchdown in 1990 and 1991. He didn’t last long though, he was cut in 1992, then picked up by the Cardinals. He played one more year split between the Rams and Bengals and was done.
Other notable players picked 234th: Tampa Bay Buccaneers-Joe Tafoya, DE, Arizona, 2001; Cleveland Browns-Syndric Steptoe, WR, Arizona, 2007; Dallas Cowboys Sean Lissemore, DT, William & Mary, 2010
9th round-233rd pick. Philadelphia Eagles-Clyde Simmons, DE, Western Carolina, 1986
Despite being only a ninth round pick, Clyde became a regular in the Eagles defense in 1987, recording six sacks. He had Reggie White playing on the other end for the first seven years, and it made quite a monstrous defense. He only made the Pro Bowl twice despite having double digits in sacks four times. He had 15.5 in 1989, 13 in 1991, and a career high 19 in 1992. His numbers dropped to five sacks when Reggie White left for Green Bay, but he also left for Arizona as a free agent in 1994. He proved he didn’t need Reggie White to help him flourish when he had 11 sacks with the Cardinals in 1995. He spent 1996 & 1997 with the Jaguars, 1998 with the Bengals, and 1999 & 2000 with the Chicago Bears. He finished his 15 year career with 121.5 sacks, 11th on the all time sack list.
Other notable players picked 233rd: Phoenix Cardinals-Scott Dill, G, Memphis, 1988; Miami Dolphins-Devin Aromashodu, WR, Auburn, 2006; Seattle Seahawks-Justin Forsett, RB, California, 2008; Tampa Bay Buccaneers-Sammie Stroughter, WR, Oregon State, 2009
20th round-232nd pick. Baltimore Colts-Raymond Berry, WR, SMU, 1954
He was Johnny Unitas’s favorite target, and the two of them helped begin the modern pass happy era. In the 1958 Championship game, Berry had a record 12 catches for 178 yards and a touchdown. I know that doesn’t sound like a lot nowadays, but this was back when a teams leading receiver would have 40-50 catches in a year! His reception totals went up every year from 1955 to 1961.
He had a career high 75 catches for 873 yards in 1961. His high mark for yardage was in 1960, when he had 74 catches for 1,298 yards and 10 touchdowns. His career high in touchdowns came in 1959, when he had 66 catches for 959 yards and 14 touchdowns. He spent his entire career with the Colts, playing from 1955 to 1967. He was the leagues all time leading receiver when he retired, with 631 catches for 9,275 yards, with a 14.7 yard average, and 68 touchdowns.
Other notable players picked 232nd: Minnesota Vikings-Charles Goodrum, G, Florida A&M, 1972; Minnesota Vikings-Sam McCullum, WR, Montana State, 1974; Carolina Panthers-Michael Gaines, TE, Central Florida, 2004; New England Patriots-Julian Edelman, WR, Kent State, 2009
9th round-231st pick. Washington Redskins-Darryl Grant, DT, Rice, 1981
He played on two Super Bowl winning teams in 10 years with the Redskins, winning Super Bowls XVII & XXII. He had a career high eight sacks in 1984. He retired following 1991, which he spent with Tampa Bay and San Diego.
Other notable players picked 231st: Detroit Lions-Jeff Komlo, QB, Delaware, 1979; Kansas City Chiefs-Adam Lingner, C, Illinois, 1983; Cincinnati Bengals-Bruce Kozerski, C, Holy Cross, 1984; Denver Broncos-Monsanto Pope, DT, Virginia, 2002; Cleveland Browns-Alex Hall, LB, St. Augustine’s, 2008; Minnesota Vikings-Jamarca Sanford, DB, Mississippi, 2009
7th round-230th pick . New England Patriots-Matt Cassel, QB, USC, 2005
Although he never started in college since he had Carson Palmer and Matt Leinart ahead of him, the Patriots still had enough faith in him to draft him. He probably didn’t expect to play much as a pro either, since the team picking him already had Tom Brady. He played in only 14 games heading into 2008. When Brady went down, Cassel did well enough in 15 games that the Patriots franchised him. They wound up trading him and Mike Vrabel to the Chiefs for a second round pick. Cassel then signed a 6 year, 62.7 million dollar contract.
Although he only went 4-11 as a starter in his first season, the Chiefs didn’t panic. Before the 2010 season, they added running back Thomas Jones and drafted a new starting tight end, plus Dwayne Bowe played like he actually cared about money, I mean football, just in time for his contract year. The Chiefs surprised many people when they went from last place to first place in one year, and played in their first playoff game in five years. Cassel wound up as the replacement for Tom Brady in the Pro Bowl.
Other notable players picked 230th: Dallas Cowboys-Claxton Welch, RB, Oregon, 1969; Miami Dolphins-Vern Den Herder, DE, Central College, 1971; N.Y. Jets-Ralph Tamm, G, West Chester, 1988; Green Bay Packers-Ty Detmer, QB, Brigham Young, 1992; Green Bay Packers-Adam Timmerman, G, South Dakota State, 1995; New England Patriots-Scott Rehberg, T, Central Michigan, 1997; New York Giants-Ross Kolodziej, DT, Wisconsin, 2001; Green Bay Packers-C.J. Wilson, DE, East Carolina, 2010
7th round-229th pick. New York Jets-Jason Ferguson, DT, Georgia, 1997
Although there were 17 defensive tackles picked before him, Jason outlasted the majority of them. He spent his first eight season with the Jets, and had a good enough season in 2004 that he was a highly coveted free agent. He chose Dallas since the coach who drafted him was running the Cowboys. He started all 16 games in 2006, then played only game in 2007 before suffering a season ending injury. Once again he was reunited with his former coach Bill Parcells when the Dolphins traded for him in 2008. He played in nine games in 2009 before another season ending injury. He wound up with an eight game suspension in 2010 but simply retired.
Other notable players picked 229th: N.Y. Giants-Otis Wonsley, RB, Alcorn State, 1980; San Francisco 49ers-Mike Mularkey, TE, Florida, 1983; Kansas City Chiefs-Scott Auer, T, Michigan State, 1984; Indianapolis Colts-Mark Boyer, TE, USC, 1985; Kansas City Chiefs-Gary Baldinger, DE, Wake Forest, 1986; San Diego Chargers-Andrew Pinnock, FB, South Carolina, 2003; Washington Redskins-Erik Cook, C, New Mexico, 2010
19th round-228th pick. L.A, Rams-Andy Robustelli, DE, Bridgeport, 1951
He spent his first five seasons with the Rams, being selected to the Pro Bowl twice. He was traded tro the Giants in 1956, where he spent the next nine years. In his 14 year career, he made the Pro Bowl seven times, and he was on the NFL Championship teams in 1951 and 1956. He made only two interceptions in his career, but he returned both of them for touchdowns. He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1971.
Other notable players picked 228th: Washington Redskins-Dallas Hickman, DE, California, 1975; Pittsburgh Steelers-A.J. Jenkins, LB, Cal State-Fullerton, 1989; Chicago Bears-Johnny Bailey, RB, Texas A&M – Kingsville, 1990; Carolina Panthers-Kris Mangum, TE, Mississippi, 1997; Pittsburgh Steelers-Kris Brown, K, Nebraska, 1999; Buffalo Bills-Mario Haggan, LB, Mississippi State, 2003; Kansas City Chiefs-Jarrad Page, S, UCLA, 2006; Green Bay Packers-DeShawn Wynn, RB, Florida, 2007; St. Louis Rams-Chris Chamberlain, LB, Tulsa, 2008; Detroit Lions-Lydon Murtha, T, Nebraska, 2009; Cincinnati Bengals-Reggie Stephens, OL, Iowa State, 2010
9th round-227th pick. Minnesota Vikings-Brad Johnson, QB, Florida State, 1992
His story was quite similar to current Chiefs starter Matt Cassel at the beginning. He was a backup quarterback at Florida State, and he only played in nine games in his first four years. In 1996 he got his first extended playing time, starting eight games. He started 13 games in 1997, throwing for over 3,000 yards and 20 touchdowns. He was injured twice in 1998 and only started twice. In 1999, the Vikings cashed in when they traded him to the Redskins for a first round pick, a future second round pick, and a third round pick.
He threw for over 4,000 yards in his first season with the Redskins. However, in his second year he threw more interceptions than touchdowns. the Redskins gave up on him & traded him to Tampa Bay, leaving them with Jeff George and Tony Banks. In 2001, he started all 16 games, and threw for 3,405 yards. The next season he had 22 touchdowns and only six interceptions , and led Tampa Bay to a win in Super Bowl XXXVII. in 2003 he had 26 touchdowns, but also threw 21 interceptions. He started the first four games in 2004 but got benched after three touchdowns and eight interceptions.
He re-joined Minnesota in 2005, and took over from Daunte Culpepper after he got hurt in week seven. He threw 12 touchdowns and only four interceptions in nine starts. In 2006 he began the year as the starter, but was eventually pulled in favor of Tarvaris Jackson. He went to Dallas in 2007 to backup Tony Romo, starting three games in 2008 before retiring after the season.
Other notable players picked 227th: N.Y. Jets-Matt Robinson, QB, Georgia, 1977; Green Bay Packers-Tim Huffman, T, Notre Dame, 1981; Buffalo Bills-Keith McKeller, TE, Jacksonville State, 1987; Denver Broncos-Peyton Hillis, RB, Arkansas, 2008
9th round-226th pick. Houston Oilers-Steve Tasker, WR, Northwestern, 1985
He only made two catches in nine games during two seasons as an Oiler. The Bills found a much better use for him though, as a gunner on special teams. He made the Pro Bowl in 1987 and from 1990-1995. He was the most feared man on kickoff coverage during his time with the Bills. There’s quite a few of us that think he belongs in the Hall of Fame. No one else has ever been voted to so many Pro bowls as a special teamer.
There were a few others in this group that stood out. Cardinals running back Stump Mitchell played nine years, and ran for over 1,000 yards in 1985. Pat Tillman started 39 of the 60 games he played in before retiring to join the Army. The Cardinals later retired his #40 after he was killed in the line of duty. The Raiders expected Chaz Schilens to start this year, but he couldn’t stay healthy, and he played in only five games. He’ll probably be stuck behind Louis Murphy, Jacoby Ford, and Darrius Heyward-Bey now.
Other notable players picked 226th: St. Louis Cardinals-Stump Mitchell, RB, The Citadel, 1981; Washington Redskins-Ken Coffey, DB, Texas State University, 1982; Houston Oilers-Jeff Donaldson, S, Colorado, 1984; Washington Redskins-Scott Turner, DB, Illinois, 1995; Arizona Cardinals-Pat Tillman, FS, Arizona State, 1998; Oakland Raiders-Chaz Schilens, WR, San Diego State, 2008; Pittsburgh Steelers-A.Q. Shipley, C, Penn State, 2009; St. Louis Rams-George Selvie, DE, South Florida, 2010
9th round-225th pick. Tampa Bay Buccaneers-Reuben Davis, DE, North Carolina, 1988
He made 10.5 sacks in 4 seasons and five games with the Buccaneers. He was traded to the Cardinals during the 1992 season. He started five of 11 games for the Cardinals in 1992, then 15 of 16 in 1993. He signed with the Chargers in 1994, and started 47 of 48 games over the next three seasons. He retired after missing the 1997 & 1998 seasons due to injury.
Other notable players picked 225th: Baltimore Colts-Jim Mills, T, Hawaii, 1983; Tampa Bay Buccaneers-Rick Mallory, G, Washington, 1984; Phoenix Cardinals-David Bavaro, LB, Syracuse, 1990; Denver Broncos-Matt Mauck, QB, Louisiana State, 2004; Denver Broncos-Syd’Quan Thompson, CB, California, 2010
7th round-224th pick. Green Bay Packers-Mark Tauscher, T, Wisconsin, 2000
He was a surprise starter as a rookie, starting 14 of 16 games. He missed all but two games because of injury in 2002, but always comes back. He started all 16 games every year for the next three years then missed five games in 2006. He missed three games in 2008, and the Packers initially tried to replace him, but their line performed so poorly that they needed him back. He re-signed after four games in the 2009 season, and wound up playing in & starting eight games. They re-signed him quickly in 2010, but he got hurt again and started only four games.
Other notable players selected 224th: N.Y. Giants-Byron Hunt, LB, Southern Methodist, 1981; L.A. Raiders-Sam Seale, DB, Western State (Colo.), 1985; Dallas Cowboys-Omar Stoutmire, DB, Fresno State, 1997; San Francisco 49ers-Eric Johnson, TE, Yale, 2001; Seattle Seahawks-Donnie Jones, P, Louisiana State, 2004; Dallas Cowboys-Jay Ratliff, NT, Auburn, 2005; New York Giants-Michael Johnson, S, Arizona, 2007; Buffalo Bills-Steve Johnson, WR, Kentucky, 2008; San Francisco 49ers-Philip Adams, DB, South Carolina State, 2010
8th round-223rd pick. Miami Dolphins-Mark Clayton, WR, Louisville, 1983
One of Dan Marino’s favorite targets, Clayton would have been a steal in fantasy leagues in 1984. He was an eighth round pick with only six catches as a rookie, but he wound up hauling in 73 catches for 1,389 yards, averaging 19 yards a catch, and 18 touchdowns. He had over 1,000 yards receiving five times, and hit double digits in touchdowns four times. After ten seasons in Miami, he went to Green Bay for one last season before retiring after the 1993 season. His career totals were 582 catches for 8,974 yards, averaging 15.4 yards a catch, and 84 touchdowns.

8th round-222nd pick. San Diego Chargers-Trent Green, QB, Indiana, 1993
He spent his rookie year inactive with the Chargers, then went north to the British Columbia Lions for the 1994 season after the Chargers cut him. He signed with the Redskins in 1995, but didn’t play at all until 1997, and that was only one incomplete pass. He was suddenly thrust into the Redskins starting lineup in 1998, & was a pleasant surprise. He threw for 3,441 yards, 23 touchdowns, and only 11 interceptions.
In 1999, he was the Rams prized free agent signing, with a four year, 16.5 million dollar contract. He suffered a season ending knee injury in the preseason, and the Rams had to turn to Kurt Warner instead. In 2000 he came back into the lineup when Warner was hurt, starting five of eight games he played. He threw 16 touchdowns with only five interceptions. In 2001, the Rams traded him to the Chiefs for a first round pick.
He was the Chiefs regular starting quarterback for five and a half seasons, throwing for over 4,000 yards three years in a row. His career high was 4,591 yards in 2004. He missed half the season in 2006 after being knocked unconscious in the first game of the season. He started eight games that year, then went to Miami in 2007.
He started five games with the Dolphins, but had his season ended with another concussion. He was knocked out trying to block Texans defensive tackle Travis Johnson when his helmet hit Johnson’s knee too hard. Green eventually wound up being placed on injured reserve. he came back for one last season with the Rams in 2008, and then retired in 2009. The Bears tried to talk him into coming back when former Rams head coach Mike Martz became the offensive coordinator, but he turned them down.

8th round-221st pick. Detroit Lions-Willie Clay, DB, Georgia Tech, 1992
He only started one game in his first two years, but Willie “Big Play” Clay lived up to his nickname in 1995. In his fourth year with the Lions, he intercepted eight passes for 173 yards. He signed as a free agent with the Patriots in 1996, and started there for three years. He went on to the Saints for one last season in 1999, then retired in 2000. He started 90 games in eight years, and finished his career with 27 interceptions for 437 yards and two touchdowns.
