10. Josh Bidwell (2000-03)

The Green Bay Packers used a fourth-round pick in the 1999 NFL Draft to take Oregon punter Josh Bidwell, whose NFL career was delayed as he sat out his first season recovering from testicular cancer.

Bidwell won the punting job in training camp in 2000 and spent four years with the Packers.

He averaged 42.5 yards per punt in 2001, his best mark while in Green Bay, and in four seasons had an average of 41.1 yards per kick.

He signed a free-agent contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in March 2004 and spent five seasons with the Bucs, earning a Pro Bowl bid in 2005.

He missed the entire 2009 season because of a hip injury and was released by Tampa Bay in March 2010.

He signed with the Washington Redskins later that month and kicked in four games for them in 2010. He was released in July 2011, prior to training camp.

He was a first-team All-Pac-10 and second-team All-American selection in his final year at Oregon in 1998.

In 10 active seasons, he averaged 42.7 yards per punt.
