We need to put some respect on Harvard’s name! Did you know that Harvard Football is now considered a powerhouse?

When I was breaking down rosters today, I noticed that Harvard had quite a bit of football players on 53 man rosters. I was mind blown. Everyone knows that Ryan FitzMAGIC was recently named the Dolphins starting quarterback, but did you know there are five others on NFL rosters from the Ivy League school?

Check out the six players currently on NFL rosters.
