Gardner Minshew II

Gardner Minshew II was selected in the sixth round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 178th overall, by the Jacksonville Jaguars. Known for his distinctive mustache and passionate playing style, Minshew made an immediate impact as a rookie, taking over as the Jaguars’ starting quarterback following an injury to Nick Foles.

In his rookie season, Minshew threw for 3,271 yards and 21 touchdowns, with only six interceptions in 14 games. He was named the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Month for September 2019.

Minshew’s performances showcased his potential as a starting quarterback in the league, as he demonstrated poise, accuracy, and a flair for making plays outside the pocket. His journey from late-round draft pick to starting quarterback has made him a fan favorite and an intriguing prospect for the future.

Nick Foles

Nick Foles, known for his stints with the Philadelphia Eagles, started his career in 2012. One of his most notable moments was leading the Eagles to their first Super Bowl victory (LII) in 2018 where he was named Super Bowl MVP.

Foles has had a roller-coaster career that’s seen him bounce between starter and backup roles on various teams. His career has been marked by flashes of brilliance including the 2013 season where he posted a NFL record-tying 7 TDs in a game and ended with a league-best passer rating of 119.2.

As of 2023, he has 82 career touchdowns and over 14,000 passing yards.

Trent Edwards

Trent Edwards was selected by the Buffalo Bills in the third round, 92nd overall, in the 2007 NFL Draft. He started as a rookie and showed promise early in his career, earning the starting quarterback position for the Bills. His best season came in 2008 when he passed for 2,699 yards and 11 touchdowns.

However, Edwards’s performance declined, and he eventually lost his starting position. After being released by the Bills in 2010, he spent time with various teams, including the Jacksonville Jaguars, Oakland Raiders, and Chicago Bears (never saw action with the Raiders or Bears), mainly in a backup role.

His time in the NFL was marked by some bright moments, but injuries and inconsistency limited his opportunities. Edwards finished his NFL career with 6,033 passing yards and 26 touchdowns.

Jason Babin

Jason Babin was selected by the Houston Texans in the first round of the 2004 NFL Draft, 27th overall. He was a defensive end who played for various teams over his 12-year NFL career, including stints with the Texans, Seattle Seahawks, Kansas City Chiefs, Tennessee Titans, Philadelphia Eagles, Jacksonville Jaguars, and New York Jets.

Babin’s career highlights include two Pro Bowl selections in 2010 and 2011. In the 2011 season with the Eagles, he had a remarkable year, recording 18 sacks and was named 2nd Team All-Pro. His final career stats include 374 total tackles, 64.5 sacks, and 14 forced fumbles.

Babin’s aggressive playing style and ability to pressure the quarterback made him a significant presence on the defensive line throughout his career.

Johnathan Cyprien

Johnathan Cyprien was drafted in the second round, 33rd overall, by the Jacksonville Jaguars in the 2013 NFL Draft. Cyprien started his career with the Jaguars and played for the team from 2013 to 2016. Following his time with the Jaguars, he played for multiple teams, including the Titans, Eagles, Falcons, and 49ers.

Although he didn’t receive any Pro Bowl selections, Cyprien was a solid player during his career, known for his tackling and run-stopping abilities. He started 60 games during his 4 years in Jacksonville, recording over 450 tackles.

Cyprien was a bit of a journeyman after the Jaguars, playing for 4 different teams over a short span. His versatility and experience made him a valuable asset for NFL defenses, particularly against the run.

Jay Fiedler

Jay Fiedler was originally signed as an undrafted free agent by the Philadelphia Eagles in 1994 after playing quarterback at Dartmouth.

Fiedler is most known for his time with the Miami Dolphins, where he played from 2000 to 2004. Before joining the Dolphins, he played one season each with the Eagles, Minnesota Vikings, and Jacksonville Jaguars. After leaving Miami, he also played a season for the New York Jets.

While Fiedler never won any significant awards or honors, he led the Dolphins to playoff appearances in the 2000 and 2001 seasons, with his best statistical year coming in 2001 when he threw for 20 touchdowns. Overall, he threw for over 11,000 yards and 69 touchdowns in his NFL career.
