The list of previous USC tackles to succeed in the NFL is extremely long and ranges from former players such as Ron Yary, Anthony Munoz and Tony Boselli to current stars such as Sam Baker, Tyron Smith and Charles Brown. In fact, there might not be a position in college football that has seen more top players from one school make the league than offensive tackle for the Trojans.
