Name a player from the past that you thought was good but under the radar


I always thought David Jones (2003 TE) was awesome. Guy could run like a deer too. I thought he would blow up in the NFL, I was wrong.

Jeremy Lawrence was a beast and just so happened to be in the same LB core as Bradie and Trev. He was a very good linebacker imo.

I was torn between him and Allen Stansberry. If you even looked at that guy, you got a concussion.

I think the value of Quinn Johnson was under the radar for most of his career at LSU.

Eddie Ludwig.


But seriously, Ricky Jean-Francois. Haven't heard anything about that guy since '07 championship.

ETA: or was he the one who blocked the bama field goal in 2008?

Even still, I had no idea he's with the 49ers until I googled just now.

Pretty sure the BCSNCG was his finally. He blocked one in that game.


I also thought that Melvin Oliver was gonna be a pretty good pro.
