The Parade of the Big Uglies continues as Johnnie Troutman checks in at number 74 on our countdown to kickoff!

The Brown Mills, NJ native was a consensus three-star prospect in the Class of 2006, but was getting looks on the defensive side of the line. The coaching staff, however, saw things a bit differently. After redshirting his freshman year and backing up 3rd team All-America selection Rich Ohrnberger the following year, Troutman broke out from the pack. He started 32 games over the next three years and was named Honorable Mention All-Big Ten in 2011. In the 2012 NFL Draft, Troutman was selected 149th overall by the San Diego Chargers. This year, he'll be reunited with former teammate and depth chart competitor Ohrnberger.

Good luck this season, Johnnie, and thanks for the memories!
