Tigers in the NFL

Aug. 8, 2005

There are currently 28 former Clemson football rosters in camps with NFL teams. The list includes eight former Tigers who would be classified as rookies, including six who were members of Clemson’s 2004 team. Rookie William Henry, a starter on Clemson’s 2003 team, is a rookie with Seattle and Roscoe Crosby, who lettered in 2001 and played in one game in 2003, is a rookie with the Indianapolis Colts.

Of the 28 players listed below, 10 are offensive players, 17 defensive and one kicker. That one kicker is Chris Gardocki, who is entering his 15th year in the NFL. When he appears in a game this year he will become the first former Tiger to play as many as 15 years in the NFL.

The 28 players are on 23 of the 32 teams in the NFL, including 13 of the 16 NFC teams and 10 of the 16 AFC teams. Current Carolina Panthers linebacker Vince Ciurciu is not included in the list below. Ciurciu started his college career at Clemson as a running back, but he transfer to Boston College after the 1999 season. Anthony Simmons, a seven-year NFL veteran, is also not on the list. He was cut by Seattle in the off season and had not been picked up by another team as of August 7.
