Atari – not relation to the video game console – went undrafted in 2005, but he'd have a pretty tremendous career nonetheless. He was named the NFL's Defensive Player of the Month in December 2007, and would go on to win a Super Bowl title as a member of the Green Bay Packers (he also once introduced himself during a Sunday Night Football telecast as hailing from the "University of Jah, Rastafari") Oh, and as far as his name, it comes from a Japanese word meaning "to hit the target," perfect for a starting safety.
