Huskies in the NFL

Let’s take a brief interlude from a college football gameday to acknowledge that the NFL is opening its regular season and look at the former Huskies on NFL rosters.
By my count, there are 13:
Stanley Daniels, OL, Broncos
Olin Kruetz, C, Bears
Tank Johnson, DL, Bengals
Mark Brunell, QB, Jets
Khalif Barnes, OL, Raiders
Marcel Reece, FB, Raiders
Daniel Te’o-Nesheim, DL, Eagles
Dashon Goldson, S, 49ers
Roy Lewis, CB, Seahawks
— :Lawyer Milloy, S, Seahawks
Jerramy Stevens, TE, Bucs
Also, Donald Butler (LB, Chargers) and Isaiah Stanback (WR, Seahawks) are on injured reserve.
Other than Butler and Te’o-Nesheim, each drafted, there were no other members of last year’s UW team that even signed free agent contracts. So those two are the only new additions to NFL rosters of former Husky players.
There’s also one sort-of Husky on an NFL roster as safety Joey Thomas, a member of the Class of 1999 who spent a little while with UW before transferring to Montana State, is with the Raiders.
In terms of the coaches who recruited the players, I count four for Rick Neuheisel (Daniels, Barnes, Stanback, Johnson), three for Tyrone Willingham (Butler, Te’o-Nesheim, Reece), two for Keith Gilbertson (Goldson, Lewis), two for Jim Lambright (Stevens, Kueutz) and two for Don James (Brunell, Milloy).
UPDATED — To add Milloy.
