Preseason Projans

| No Comments

As the year goes on, we'll keep tabs on the Trojan pros in every sport.

This week, NFL players start reporting to training camp, which is the first step on the road to the Super Bowl.  And for the rookies, they have a chance to make an all-important first impression with their new organization.

There are 54 Trojans currently on NFL rosters plus RB Justin Fargas, who is still a free agent, but he'll likely be signed before the season.

26 of the 32 NFL teams feature former USC players with Pete Carroll's Seahawks as the league leader (nine total). 

Of the 54 players, 14 are rookies.
