Engelberger was projected to be picked somewhere in the middle of the draft but he boosted his stock in Indianapolis. He ran a 4.73 40, measured a 34-inch vertical, and showed extreme quickness for a defensive lineman in the three-cone drill. Engelberger was rewarded by being selected 35th overall by the San Francisco 49ers. He had a decent career, lasting nine years in the league but only managed 20.5 sacks in 139 games."
John engleberger was not great however the guy was an nfl starter for nine years. I bet there are 10 guys picked higher than him with worse careers.
