7. Mario Rodriguez, DL, 1990

A two-time second team All-4A and All-AAA-I selection in 1988 and 89, Rodriguez also earned first-team 4A All-Southern Arizona honors in back-to-back seasons before starting two-years at Mesa Community College, where he earned all-conference recognition. Despite being a 5-foot, 10-inches, 235-pounds defensive lineman, Rodriguez walked on at Arizona in 1992, earning a spot in the rotation and lettering as part of the ‘Desert Swarm’ defense in 1993 and 1994.
