The NFL cut day came and went this past week as every NFL team was to cut down from upward of 80 players that they carried through the offseason to the Week 1 limit of 53 players on their roster. Some cuts were a bit surprising while others were not shocking.

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.

The UCLA Bruins sported 24 players on active rosters, trailing just Washington and Stanford who led the Pac-12 with 27 players.

Particularly interesting, the Bruins topped the USC Trojans who had only 23.

Let’s count them down:

Eli Ankou, DT, Indianapolis Colts

Devin Asiasi, TE, New England Patriots

Anthony Barr, LB, Minnesota Vikings

Jayon Brown, LB, Tennessee Titans

Kenny Clark, DL, Green Bay Packers

Matt Dickerson, DE, Tennessee Titans

Ka’imi Fairbairn, K, Houston Texans

Darnay Holmes, CB, New York Giants

Brett Hundley, QB, Arizona Cardinals

Myles Jack, LB, Jacksonville Jaguars

Andre James, OL, Las Vegas Raiders

Joshua Kelley, RB, Los Angeles Chargers

Eric Kendricks, LB, Minnesota Vikings

Marcedes Lewis, TE, Green Bay Packers

Cassius Marsh, DE, Jacksonville Jaguars

Conor McDermott, OL, New York Jets

Takkarist McKinley, DE, Atlanta Falcons

Kolton Miller, OT, Atlanta Falcons

Fabian Moreau, CB, Washington Football Team

Scott Quessenberry, OL, Los Angeles Chargers

Matthew Slater, WR, New England Patriots

Xavier Su’a-Filo, OL, Cincinnati Bengals

Jacob Tuloti-Mariner, DT, Atlanta Falcons

Kenny Young, LB, Los Angeles Rams

That’s a lot of Bruins in the NFL. Way to represent Westwood!
