You’re not gonna get all of these.

NFL: Philadelphia Eagles at New York Jets
In 20 years, I’ll have to update this quiz for this legend
Ed Mulholland-USA TODAY Sports

The college football season is fundamentally over (who really cares about that mythical national championship game anyway?), but the NFL season has reached the playoffs. Big Ten alumni such as Drew Brees, Tevin Coleman, Stefon Diggs and Dawuane Smoot (yes I had to shoehorn an Illini in there, fight me) are in action this weekend in the Wild Card Round, and throughout the playoffs there will be some spectacular plays made by players who are surefire locks to go from a Big Ten football team to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Think Brees, Brady, Smoot, etc.

Anyway, here’s a quiz highlighting those who’ve already made the journey. I’m counting Nebraska and Maryland, and Rutgers for what that’s worth. I’ve never heard of some of these guys, so don’t feel too bad if you do poorly.
