Only Matt Millen until Penn State Football 2012

You know how bad Matt Millen was as an NFL General Manager? Well, picture the opposite of that, and that's how good he was as a player, both at the collegiate and professional level. Versatility was the name of Millen's game: at Penn State, he played all over the front seven, starting out at linebacker before eventually moving to defensive tackle. But whatever role he was asked to fill, Millen succeeded; from a 52-tackle, 3-sack, 3-interception true freshman campaign to a dominant junior season, where his 9 sacks, 13 TFL, and 56 tackles earned Millen an All-America nod, and through a injury-plagued senior season, when Millen, despite confrontations with Joe Paterno, was named a team captain.

A dominant pass rusher when the forward pass was just starting to dominate offensive gameplans, Millen left Penn State as the all-time leader in career sacks and 2nd in TFL--he now ranks 5th and 10th in those categories, respectively. He was drafted in the second round by Oakland, and won 4 Super Bowls, in addition to some impressive individual achievements--one Pro-Bowl and two All-Pro seasons.
