 Chalk another advantage of Texas A&M hiring Jimbo Fisher with 11 players from his first Aggie team in the NFL.

Those making 53-man rosters were center Erik McCoy (New Orleans); fullback Cullen Gillaspia (Houston); tight end Jace Sternberger (Green Bay); linebacker and Otaro Alaka (Baltimore); running back Trayveon Williams (Cincinnati); safety Donovan Wilson (Dallas); and defensive linemen Kingsley Keke (Green Bay) and Daylon Mack (Baltimore)

Alaka was undrafted as was offensive lineman Keaton Sutherland who made Cincinnati’s practice squad and and Landis Durham who is on the L.A. Rams' practice squad. Linebacker Tyrel Dodson, also undrafted, is with Buffalo but unable to play until he resolves a legal issue.

Here’s a list of 32 Aggies on NFL rosters:

Arizona (WR Christian Kirk)

Atlanta (OT Jake Matthews)

Baltimore (LB Otaro Alaka, DT Daylon Mack)

Buffalo (#LB Tyrel Dodson)

Cincinnati (PK Randy Bullock, RB Trayveon Williams, *OG Keaton Sutherland)

Cleveland (DE Myles Garrett, WR Daimon Ratley, TE Ricky Seals-Jones)

Dallas (S Donovan Wilson)

Denver (OLB Von Miller)

Detroit (LS Don Muhlbach)

Green Bay (DL Kingsley Keke, TE Jace Sternberger, *RB Tra Carson)

Houston (FB Cullen Gillaspia)

Jacksonville (PK Josh Lambo, OL Cedric Ogbuehi)

Kansas City (S Armani Watts)

L.A. Rams (WR Josh Reynolds, *OLB Landis Durham)

N.Y. Giants (DL Michael Bennett, OL Jermaine Eluemunor)

New Orleans Saints (C Erik McCoy)

Philadelphia Eagles (DE Daeshon Hall)

Seattle (OL Germain Ifedi)

Tampa Bay (S Justin Evans, WR Mike Evans)

Tennessee (QB Ryan Tannehill)

Washington (S Deshazor Everett)

#-Dodson is on the Commisioner’s Exempt List which means he’s getting paid, but not playing. His situation won’t change until his pending legal case is resolved and the league decides what or if any punishment will be issued. Dodson was arrested in May for domestic violence.
