    Thought it would be nice to have a thread to acknowledge former ASU greats.

    Randall McDaniel is the only one I know of unless I missed someone.

    Curley Culp was also noteworthy in addition to Mike Haynes.

    Great player but his name conjured up Ronald McDonald for some reason.

    I'm not sure what happened to the link above. It doesn't seem to work once pasted.

    Try looking up NFL 100 all time team in search engine.

    On a related note, here are the ASU players enshrined in the NFL hall of Fame:

    https://www.profootballhof.com/heroes-of-the-game/colleges/ We have the same number of inductees as Oklahoma, Nebraska, and LSU, not too shabby


    A few other ASU alum that have had solid NFL careers, though I am sure this isn't a complete list:

    Eric Allen

    Darren Woodson

    John Jefferson

    Terrel Suggs

    Todd Heap

    Pat Tillman

    Jake Plummer

    Danny White

    Adam Archuleta

    Mike Richardson

    Add Mark Gastineau to the list of decent NFL players, even though he only played one season with ASU.

    Others:

    David Fulcher - he was a monster
    Bob Breunig
    Gerald Riggs had a decent career
    Louis Wright had a nice run as DB
    Jim Jeffcoat
    Al Harris
    Trace Armstrong

    Woodson and Suggs are both likely (in Suggs case, very likely) future inductees.

    Arizona State loses a great one in Benny Malone.

    Is this list restricted to football? You have some obvious HOFers from other sports. Reggie comes to mind, so does Jim Palmer.
