18. Erasmus James, DE, Minnesota Vikings
Born in the Caribbean nation of Saint Kitts and Nevis, James didn’t play football until he was a senior in high school. He ended up at Wisconsin and was Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year and a consensus All-American during his senior season.
However, after accumulating four sacks and 28 tackles in a decent rookie season for the Vikings, James missed most of 2006 and 2007 due to injury. He was traded to Washington the following year but played only five games before being waived. James never played in the NFL again, although he played with the New Mexico Stars, an indoor football team, in 2011.
