Sean Mannion was a prolific passer for the Oregon State Beavers from 2011 to 2014. Holding many of the Beavers and Pac-12 passing records, Sean finished with 13,600 yards on 1,187 completions of 1,838 attempts, and 83 touchdowns. He was selected in the 3rd round of the 2015 NFL Draft by the then St. Louis Rams. Since that time he’s spent the entirety of his career as a backup. He’s seen spot duty here and there behind first Case Keenum and Nick Foles, and then in 2017 as the primary backup behind Keenum and Jared Goff. He got to start his first game in 2017, the season finale- a 34-13 loss to the 49ers. While the Rams notched a loss, Mannion did his best throwing for 169 yards on 20 completions and no interceptions.
Dominique Brown played for the Louisville Cardinals. A short yardage back for the Cardinals, Dominique clicked in at 6’2″, 235 and reminded scouts of Toby Gerhart. Frequently injured, Brown finished his Louisville career with 1,736 yards and 16 TDs on 399 carries (4.35 YPC), adding 47 receptions. Brown had a solid East-West Shrine performance, but then ran a flat 4.63/4.65 at his Pro Day with a brutal 9-foot-1 broad jump. He was projected to go late in the 2015 draft, as scouts had questions about his dedication and work ethic. He signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as a free agent and later finished the season on the roster of the Pittsburgh Steelers rushing 18 times for 39 yards in 3 games. Currently Dominique is a free agent/ retired.
Andre Davis AKA ‘Freakshow’ piled up the numbers while at USF. While the quarterback position suffered from inconsistency, Davis took the advice of his position coaches who suggested he could take his game to the next level by watching more game film and doing the little things to tweak his game. He would go on to set the Bulls consecutive game catch record but missed 4 games in his Senior season due to a sternum injury. Still Freakshow earned team MVP honors with 36 catches for 594 yards and 7 touchdowns in 2014. He got a lot of attention at the Shrine game and coaches and players alike liked his willingness to make the play. Still Andre couldn’t shake his initial scouting report despite his productivity because his measurables weren’t eye popping. What is going for the young receiver is his intangible ability to make plays when it counts in game time situations.
In early May of 2015 the Bills signed Davis to a free agent contract, where he has made serious noise for a roster spot with Buffalo. Caught in a numbers game, Davis was one of the final cuts at the end of the preseason. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers snagged Freakshow off of the waiver wire in October, where he found a home on their practice squad. He’d be cut in April of 2016 and is currently a free agent.
