We're about two weeks from NFL training camps getting into full swing, and with the preseason schedule looming, we note that there are 17 former BYU Cougars currently on NFL rosters:

John Beck (Baltimore)

Travis Bright (Dallas)

Dan Coats (Cincinnati)

Austin Collie (Indianapolis)

Ryan Denney (Buffalo)

John Denney (Miami)

Aaron Francisco (Arizona)

Chris Hoke (Pittsburgh)

Scott Jackson (Houston)

Brett Keisel (Pittsburgh)

David Nixon (Oakland)

Brady Poppinga (Green Bay)

Meantime, the NFL Network has announced that for the first time, it will carry all 65 preseason games in HD, including 12 live broadcasts. Since many of the above-mentioned players will be fighting for roster spots, their preseason performances will be crucial, and most should see plenty of meaningful snaps in August.
