No wonder why a lot of new football leagues are founded, like the XFL, and football betting is an ever-growing industry in this football fanatic nation.

 Great Ducks all. Haloti Ngata is the first player I thought of, drafted in the 1st round in 2006 by Baltimore, 5 Pro Bowls, and a Super Bowl win. Ahmad Rashad, (Bobby Moore). Drafted in 1972 by the St. Louis Cardinals, , named to 4 Pro Bowls later as a Minnesota Viking.

Wow.  Both those should be on the list, and I agree with Confused that Herbert will someday be there too!

Great list. I think Kyle Long finished at but did not start his college career at Oregon?

This Pats fan says: YES! Also agree with Ngata and Rashad. Not sure the stats bear this out but has there ever been a better Ducks pitch and catch than Fouts throwing to Bobby Moore?

Not hardly, and especially not better than this!

I'm an old Duck, but if you researched you would find Mel Renfo should be on the list.

Also, Brian Hinkle and Russ Francis.

How about three time Super Bowl champion linebacker Mike Walter?

Among current Ducks in the NFL, Herbert is hot, but DeForest Buckner may be the best.

 LeGarrette Blount also has 3, and is one of 6 players to win consecutive Super Bowls with different teams, New England in SB LI and Philadelphia LII

Bryan Hinkle had a great NFL career after his time as a Duck.

 

He held many of the Duck weight room records in 1981 on a team with Gary Zimmerman, who may have outweighed him by 75 pounds.

No way this list is valid without Haloti Ngata.  He, Ahmad Rashad/Bobby Moore, and Patrick Chung all deserve to be there before Kyle Long and Stewart.  And Van Brocklin should be much higher.

 

FYI, NFL.com lists their top 10 as Fouts, Renfro, Van Brocklin, Zimmerman, Wilcox, Ngata, Russ Francis, Rashad, George Martin, and Fred Quillan.
