Ranking the all-time best NFL offensive players out of BYU: #20

20. Scott Brumfield- Brumfield went undrafted after leaving BYU but was able to make the Cincinnati Bengals roster in 1993.  Brumfield spent his whole six-year NFL career and appeared in 56 games.  Included in those games for Brumfield were 29 starts.

As a rookie, Brumfield played in every game and even managed to make seven starts.  That’s an incredibly impressive feat when you consider that Brunfield was an undrafted free agent.

Brumfield had his best season in 1995 when he appeared in 14 games and started 11 at left guard according to Pro-Football-Reference.com.

Brumfield is a remarkable story of strength and perseverance.  After moving into the starting lineup during the second game of the 1996 season, Brumfield started eight straight games.  During the eighth and final game of his season, Brumfield suffered a severe spinal cord injury against the Baltimore Ravens which left him temporarily paralyzed.  After months of rehab, Brumfield was able to return to the football field and play in 15 of the Bengals 16 games the following season, including two starts.
