The KU football program hasn’t been the best over the last few years, but as you can see, the college did produce some great players for the NFL.
You know, it’s interesting. I did a similar list, but for the Kansas State Wildcats, and it was more difficult to put together than this one was.

KU had some really good players on their team back in the day and on this list, only two never won a title during their pro career (three if you count Stuckey). There were three Hall of Famers included here and a few others that will likely be considered to make it in someday.
While KU football has been a little rough to watch recently, the program has a good history of players in the pros.
Even now with the Jayhawks struggling during the season, guys like Ben Heeney and JaCorey Shepherd have gotten drafted and been able to spend time in the NFL. That’s something that really didn’t happen for awhile.
Gale Sayers is still the best player to come out of Kansas, but guys like John Riggins, Mike McCormack, and John Hadl had terrific careers as well.
What did you think of this list, KU fans? Did I leave anyone off?
