LARAMIE– Not long ago, Marcus Epps was patrolling the University of Wyoming secondary as a walk-on. Now, not only is he a productive starting safety in the National Football League, but he is also a team captain for the Las Vegas Raiders.

Epps has consistently achieved a minimum of four tackles in each of his last four games, with a notable five-tackle performance in the Raiders’ recent 16-12 victory over the New York Jets. In the current season, Epps has 44 tackles, three tackles for loss, and one pass defended, contributing to Las Vegas’s 5-5 overall record.

Epps is not the only former Wyoming student-athlete making waves in the NFL. Here’s a roundup of how other former Wyoming students performed in Week 10.
