Texas has sent plenty of elite defensive players to the NFL via the first round, most notably safeties Michael Griffin (2007) and Earl Thomas (2010) and outside linebackers Derrick Johnson (2005) and Brian Orakpo (2009).  

When it comes to offensive players however, Texas has not had the same success rate. Two prominent examples are WR Roy Williams and QB Vince Young. Young was one of the most electrifying players to ever play college football and saw early NFL success, being named the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2006. Since then, his career has faltered, having moved through several teams without seeing more than limited playing time.    

Best Picks: Brian Orakpo (2009), Derrick Johnson (2005), Earl Thomas (2010) 

Worst Picks: Vince Young (2006), Roy Williams (2004), Marcus Tubbs (2004)
