Memphis Tiger Trivia (answer)



Two former Tigers were taken in May's NFL draft: cornerback Bobby McCain by the Miami Dolphins and defensive end Martin Ifedi by the St. Louis Rams.

When was the last time a Tiger was drafted by a team from each of the NFL's eight divisions? (You have the AFC East and NFC West already covered.)

AFC North: 2009 (Cincinnati Bengals — Clinton McDonald, DE)
AFC South: 2013 (Houston Texans — Lonnie Balentine, DB)
AFC West: 2012 (Kansas City Chiefs — Dontari Poe, DL)

NFC East: 1985 (New York Giants — Jack Oliver, OT)*
NFC North: 2003 (Detroit Lions — Travis Anglin, WR)
NFC South: 2006 (Carolina Panthers — DeAngelo Williams, RB)

* In 2001, the Arizona Cardinals were members of the NFC East and drafted two former Tigers (defensive back Michael Stone and defensive lineman Marcus Bell). The Cardinals moved to the NFC West a year later.
