7. Ed West (1984-94)

The Green Bay Packers signed Auburn tight end Ed West in the spring of 1984 after he went undrafted and he turned into the Pack’s starting tight end for six of his 11 seasons in Green Bay.

More blocker than receiver, West’s best year catching the ball came in 1994, when he made 31 receptions for 377 yards and scored two touchdowns. He had five touchdown catches twice in his career, in 1989 and 1990.

In his 11 seasons, West wound up with 202 receptions for 2,321 yards and 25 touchdowns.

But West wasn’t done, signing a free agent deal with the Indianapolis Colts in the spring of 1995. Cut by the Colts late in training camp, West signed with the Philadelphia Eagles and spent two years there before signing with the Atlanta Falcons for a final season in March 1997.

He retired after playing 14 NFL campaigns.
