In the 2001 NFL Draft, the Jacksonville Jaguars drafted defensive tackle Marcus Stroud out of the University of Georgia with the 13th overall selection. The 2001 NFL Draft is considered by many to be one of the best drafts for defensive tackles in the history of the NFL, having produced not only Marcus Stroud but also his college teammate Richard Seymour, Kris Jenkins, and Casey Hampton. Early in Stroud's rookie season however, he was considered a bust by many.
During his second season in the NFL, teamed with then rookie John Henderson, Stroud became a part of one of the most dominant interior lineman groups in the entire NFL while he was on the Jaguars. Marcus Stroud was elected to three consecutive Pro-Bowls in 2003, 2004, and 2005. In 2007 however, Marcus Stroud underwent micro-fracture surgery and was never the same player. Following a suspension for violating the leagues PED policy, Stroud was traded to the Buffalo Bills for a 3rd round and 5th round pick. After three seasons with the Bills, Stroud was released and recently signed with the New England Patriots.
