With very little more than baseball to keep us busy and the fun football facts features coming once per week let’s take a stroll through the conference looking at some of the current players in the NFL and who could possibly be the greatest NFL player from that school. We’ll start with the Baylor Bears.

 

Baylor currently has 9 players in the NFL on 9 different squads. Most notably are TampaBay kicker Matt Bryant and Pittsburgh punter Daniel Sepulveda. Also from Baylor are Miami Dolphins General Manager Jeff Ireland and San Francisco Head Coach Mike Singletary.

 

In 12 NFL seasons Mike Singletary started 172 games and was named as an All-Pro eight times. He recorded 1,488 career tackles, 19 sacks and 7 interceptions. He was the defensive anchor for the 1985 World Championship team that destroyed New England 46-10 in the Super Bowl.

 

Singletary was drafted in the second round (38th overall pick) by the Bears in the 1981 draft. He was named to the All Decade Team for the 1980’s and elected into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1998. He’ll always be immortalized by his intense stare down of opposing offenses.  

 

So, what do you think? Is Mike Singletary the greatest NFL player to come out of Baylor?
