Did you know there are 14 current players in the NFL from an Ivy League School?

When you think of Ivy League Football, you might not be that impressed, but let me tell you it is growing.  Ivy League Football is no longer a joke, it is a real league and has real competition.  This year some very solid players are expected to enter the NFL from the Ivy League.  Guys like Jeff Matthews the QB from Cornell or Caraun Reid of Princeton.  There are 14 current players from the NFL that graduated with very amazing college degrees.  Those fourteen are below.  While many are not impressed, remember there are only 8 teams in this division.  2 of them do not have a player in the NFL.  Both Dartmouth and Yale are still player-less, but that could change this year.
