BYU has 14 former players playing in the NFL currently. As a part of the “Hatch of Knowledge” series I will be collecting how each player performs throughout the 2013 season and compiling their stats for you to read up on weekly. Without further ado, here’s how Week 1 of the NFL Preseason went for the former Cougars.
