One quarter of the NFL season is in the books, and several former South Florida Bulls have flashed their talent throughout the league.
Let’s check in on how the new, and the old, have fared in 2018.
WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Green Bay Packers
The former USF star wide receiver stole the Week 5 show, hauling in seven of 10 targets for 68 yards and his first professional touchdown in the Packers’ 31-23 loss to the Detroit Lions on Sunday.
After struggling with extended playing time in the two weeks prior, the rookie was finally able to burst through with a productive day in his new shade of green and gold and was on the field for 95 percent of the Packers’ plays on offense.
