Power Ranking The Top 5 DBs In Tech BCS History

3 of 6

4. Anthony Malbrough (1996-2000)

Probably one of the most undervalued Texas Tech players in the BCS era, Malbrough had some pretty amazing stats during his time in Lubbock. The 5-foot-9, 180-pound defensive back out of Beaumont, Texas was one of the best that former coach Spike Dykes got to coach. His collegiate career highlights include a junior season where he was named the J.T. King Award for “Most Improved Player” as well as a senior season  with a do-it-all stat line of 42 tackles, 11 pass deflections, one interception and one quarterback pressure.

Malbrough was drafted as the first pick in the fifth round of the 2000 NFL draft by the Cleveland Browns. After a short stint in the NFL, he moved to the CFL in 2002 and played for several teams until retiring in 2009.
