Note: I’m currently doing research on BYU alumni in the pros and putting together a book. The profiles on this site will be abbreviated profiles that include a summary of their pro career and statistics. For all information relevant to the players (prep and collegiate summaries, NFL transactions, where are they now, etc.), you’ll have to wait for the book.
