4) Resilient

A well-regarded national recruit, Whittington initially played running back at Texas but battled injuries his first few years. He overcame them and became a critical part of not only the Longhorns' wide receiver room but program as a whole.

"Because of the experience he had in his time here, the fact that he changed positions, and all that he's overcome, he's really a resilient player," Sarkisian said after Whittington was drafted by the Rams. "That's something he's helped so many young players with and a big part of who he is as an unselfish and supportive teammate."

5) Longhorns in the league

Whittington was the 11th and final Texas player selected in this year's draft, a total which set a new program record.
