|Has there ever been a NFL football player that didn't play college football?|
Well, some people don't know what they're talking about. Warren Moon played at the University of Washington. Dante Hall played at Texas A&M. Antonio Gates is the only current NFL player I can think of that didn't play in college.
Eric Swann never played college ball, he played semi-pro before being drafted at #6 in the first round in 1991 by the Cardinals. Report It
Denvers ol running back M. Anderson never played college ball of any kind... He was enlisted in the Marines. Just goes to show you can't beat natural talent. Report It
mike d, you're wrong. Mike Anderson played two years at the University of Utah.
preston pearson, THE FORMER STEELER & COWBOY RUNNINGBACK did not plaY COLLEGE FOOTBALL HE PLAYED COLLEGE BASKETBALL.. Report It
Antonio Gates played college basketball, but signed with the San Diego Chargers
I'm pretty sure Renaldo Nehemiah (world record holder in the 100 meter hurdles?) never played college football...I wonder whether Bullet Bob Hayes ever played college football.
Sure, plenty. As someone mentioned above, Antonio Gates is probably the most known player who didn't play college football (TE, Chargers).

Antonio Gates is From U of M B-Ball, he didn't start in any college football, i'm sure there's more.
Wide Receiver Dante Hall didn't attend college football.
Yup, Antonio Gates is the most well known one. Another one, I can't think of his name off the top of my head right now, but the movie 'Invincible' is about his story in the NFL.
Brock Lesner, a former amateur and pro wrestler, played 1 preseason with the Vikings.
Yes a Whole lot of them, Go Saints !!!!!!!!!!!
Okoye played college ball at the NAIA Level. Gates is the big Current one but the highest player ever drafted not to play college ball was Eric Swann who was the 6th overall pick in the 1991 NFL Draft to the Cardinals. He spent 12 seasons in the NFL Bob Hayes did play some football at Florida A&M
