Since the 2019 NFL season is now officially in the books, which five former Texas football players showed out the best and projects well heading into 2020?
The 2020 NFL season just finished up with former Texas Tech Red Raiders star quarterback Patrick Mahomes leading the Kansas City Chiefs past former Texas football wide receiver Kyle Shanahan and the San Francisco 49ers in the Super Bowl. Mahomes and the Chiefs got the best of the 49ers head coach Shanahan by the final score of 31-20.
This was one of the more thrilling Super Bowls, at least in the second half, in recent memory. It was much better than the snooze fest that was last year’s Super Bowl that saw the New England Patriots overcome the Los Angeles Rams where offense was very hard to come by.
However, there were a number of Texas Exes that contributed to their team’s journey to through the playoffs over the course of the last two years. Texas is one of the college football blue bloods and they have more than two-dozen players active in the NFL. Who are the best representing the burnt orange at the next level with the 2020 offseason officially upon us?
This list takes into account the overall body of work that each Texas Ex has in the NFL, but mainly the current value that they bring to the table. Future projected value that each player has also plays a role. For instance, if a player was about to retire this offseason but they had a solid 2019 campaign, that could hurt them on this list.
Here’s a look into the definitive ranking of the five best players out of the Texas Longhorns football program entering the 2020 offseason.
