Sun Devil Football in the NFL: Week Ten Update

Nov 19, 2020

Brandon Aiyuk keeps thriving in expanded role | Sun Devils as NFL First-Round Picks

A first-round draft pick living up to the hype, a punter making a pro bowl push, and a workhorse running back doing what he does best. Checking in on Sun Devil Football in the NFL after week ten of the regular season.
Arizona State has a total of 13 players in the NFL, with ten Sun Devils on active 53-man rosters. An additional two players occupy spots on a practice squad and one is currently on the injured-reserve list. During Week 10 of the season, 11 Sun Devils were on a 53-man roster, after Quinn Bailey was elevated from the practice squad for gameday.
Four new Sun Devils entered the league this year, including two picks in the 2020 NFL Draft. Running back Eno Benjamin and wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk will go from starring on Saturdays in Tempe, to going head-to-head in the NFC West. The Arizona Cardinals selected Benjamin with the 222nd pick in the seventh-round back in April, while the division rival San Francisco 49ers used the 25th overall pick on Aiyuk. 
The success in the NFL Draft and heavy presence of new Maroon & Gold blood in the league continues an exciting trend that has formed for Sun Devil Football under the direction of Herm Edwards.  The NFL experience that Edwards, Marvin LewisAntonio PierceKevin MawaeRobert RodriguezShawn Slocum, and Derek Hagan bring to the table is nearly unmatched by any other group nationally.

From contributors in the trenches, to playmakers on the outside, to standouts on special teams, Sun Devil Football players continue to shine on Sundays, Mondays, or Thursdays. Here is a closer look at how they fared in week ten of the NFL season:


Lawrence Guy (2008-10) - New England Patriots 

Week Ten: Battled through multiple injuries during the week, but still managed to play on Sunday Night Football against the Ravens. Collected three tackles (two solo) in the Patriots' win over Baltimore, as the Ravens were held to just 17 points.

Week Eight: The Patriots starting defensive tackle had two tackles in only 23 snaps, with his productive day ending early because of a shoulder injury. Has now played in 93 consecutive games, by far the most among active defensive lineman (2nd - DeForest Buckner, 66).

Through three weeks, Guy has the fifth-highest run stop win rate among defensive tackles according to ESPN analytics.

He is currently the longest-tenured Sun Devil in the NFL and was recently named a captain of the 2020 Patriots.

Prior to last season, Guy had started at defensive tackle in the last two Super Bowls, including in New England's Super Bowl LIII victory over the Rams. He was selected to the Patriots' 2010s All-Decade Team at defensive tackle. Originally drafted in the seventh round (233rd overall) of the 2011 NFL Draft by the Green Bay Packers, Guy has enjoyed stints with the Colts, Chargers, and Ravens before signing with the Patriots.
