C.J. Spiller was drafted 9th overall by the Buffalo Bills in the 2010 NFL Draft. A running back out of Clemson, Spiller was known for his explosive speed and agility.

Over his career, he earned a Pro Bowl selection in 2012 (with the Bills), the same year he recorded 1,244 rushing yards and 6 touchdowns, averaging an impressive 6.0 yards per carry. He also demonstrated proficiency as a receiver out of the backfield, tallying 43 receptions for 459 yards.

Spiller played for multiple teams throughout his NFL career, including the Bills, New Orleans Saints, Seattle Seahawks, New York Jets, and Kansas City Chiefs. Despite showing flashes of brilliance, injuries and inconsistent play hampered his career.

Chris Hogan

Chris Hogan was undrafted in the 2011 NFL Draft but eventually found his way into the league. He’s had a journeyman career, playing for multiple teams including Bills (2012–2015), Patriots (2016–2018), Panthers (2019), Jets (2020), and the Saints (2021).

Some of his biggest career highlights came during his time with the New England Patriots, where he won two Super Bowls, Super Bowl LI and Super Bowl LIII.

In Super Bowl LI, Hogan was part of the team that made a historic comeback against the Atlanta Falcons, overcoming a 28-3 deficit. He was particularly effective in the AFC Championship game leading up to Super Bowl LI, where he had 9 catches for 180 yards and 2 touchdowns.

Shayne Graham

Shayne Graham is a former placekicker who had a lengthy NFL career. He was initially signed by the New Orleans Saints as an undrafted free agent in 2000. Graham played for several teams throughout his career, including the Cincinnati Bengals, New England Patriots, New York Giants, and Atlanta Falcons, among others.

He is perhaps best known for his time with the Cincinnati Bengals, where he was selected to the Pro Bowl and named a 2nd-team All-Pro in 2005. During that season, he made 28 of 32 field goal attempts and all 47 of his extra-point tries.

Graham’s reliability as a kicker made him a sought-after player for many teams looking for stability at the position. Over the course of his career, he scored over 1,200 points, making him one of the more productive kickers in NFL history. He has also been remarkably accurate, with a career field goal percentage of 85.5%.
