NFC West roided-out rosters: Updated

By Mike Sando
ESPN.com

The latest comprehensive NFC West rosters are updated and, as usual, complete with 26 columns of information on any player associated with the teams over the past few seasons.

Column Z features information for players who finished the 2009 season on NFC West teams' 53-man rosters, or on injured reserve. That information allowed me to filter for players new to NFC West teams since last season. I was then able to produce the following chart, which shows college conference affiliation for those newcomers.

Seattle, led by former USC coach Pete Carroll, was indeed heavy on players from the West, notably the Pac-10. The Seahawks have 14 total players from the Pac-10 (the NFL average is 5.7). That includes six players added since last season.

The totals in the chart do not count NFC West newcomers currently on injured reserve. Those players are: Keilen Dykes (Big East), Nehemiah Broughton (Southern) and Chris Johnson (Missouri Valley) of the Arizona Cardinals; Anthony Heygood (Big Ten), Jameson Konz (MAC) and Isaiah Stanback (Pac-10) of the Seahawks; and Chris Hovan (ACC) and Josh Hull (Big Ten) of the St. Louis Rams.

Information reflects current college conference affiliations.
