The NFL saw their giant rosters of upward of 80 players that they carried in the offseason dwindle down to the Week 1 limit of 53 players as the NFL cut day came and went. While we’re sporting new depth charts across all 32 NFL teams, some cuts were surprising while others weren’t too noteworthy.

The Pac-12 is well represented at the professional level and with that, we counted down how many athletes landed on NFL rosters from each team.

USC ranked fourth in the conference with 23 former players landing on NFL teams, behind just Washington and Stanford, who tied atop the board with 27, and UCLA who had 24.

Here are the USC players in the NFL for the 2020 season:

Nelson Agholor, WR, Las Vegas Raiders

Zach Banner, OT, Pittsburgh Steelers

Matt Barkley, QB, Buffalo Bills

Jurrell Casey, DL, Denver Broncos

Sam Darnold, QB, New York Jets

Chuma Edoga, OT, New York Jets
