If you’re hoping to catch your favorite former Missouri players in the NFL this fall, keep it tuned to the AFC. The league’s post-draft roster inventory includes 28 players from Mizzou, with 21 on AFC teams. There are more teams on AFC West rosters (nine) than the entire NFC (seven).

There are still a few high-profile unsigned Mizzou players looking for their next NFL home — including two veterans from St. Louis, Sheldon Richardson and Super Bowl champion backup quarterback Blaine Gabbert — but once again, the former Tigers earning the biggest paychecks this season work along the offensive line, led by two of the game’s highest paid centers.

Here’s a team-by-team look at the former Tigers in the NFL and their roster situations heading into 2021.
