One of the best parts of watching NFL coverage, regardless of your interest in the sport, is watching the players introduce themselves and the college they attended at the start of the game. The reason this is so entertaining is due to the large volume of unusual names present among NFL players, and we have picked out some of the very best for your enjoyment.
Tip: For extra fun, imagine George Hamilton saying these names during commentary.
From open heart surgery as a kid to playing all 167 games of an incredible NFL career.

The king of unusual names, D'Brickashaw is a man who's name is almost as intimidating as his massive frame. Is there a more suitable name for an offensive lineman? He may be gone from the league now but this name is one of the best ever.
Greedy Williams- Cleveland Browns
Greedy in name, greedy by nature. He was given the nickname as an infant by his aunt but now, as an NFL cornerback, the nickname is quite appropriate.
Randy Bullock- Tennessee Titans
RANDY BULLOCK WINS IT IN OT FOR THE TITANS.

Tennessee Titans kicker Randy Bullock has a name more suited to Pornography than professional sports, but his habit of failing to perform means he wouldn't be a big name attraction.
Prince Tega Wanogho- Kansas City Chiefs
The prince of the offensive line, Wanogho was actually born in Nigeria before moving to the US in 2014 to pursue a basketball career. He made the switch to football and with a frame like that you can see why.
JuJu Smith-Schuster - Kansas City Chiefs
One of the most famous NFL players around at the moment, JuJu has a very big social media presence and with a memorable name like that, who can blame the fans.
Ogbonnia Okoronkwo - Houston Texans
Luckily his nickname is simply 'Obo' to make things easier for the poor commentators.
Rock Ya-Sin - Las Vegas Raiders
Abdurrahman ibn Ramadan Ya-Sin or simply known as Rock now plays cornerback for the Raiders.
Equanimeous St. Brown - Chicago Bears
Equanimeos sounds like a name of a Greek philosopher, not a wide receiver for the Bears!
Ndamukong Suh - Free agent
An asbolute beast on the defensive line, we like to imagine he shouts "NDAMUKONG!" every time he sacks the quarterback.
Haha Clinton-Dix - Free agent
Ha ha ha!
The @haha_cd6 pick to set up the #49ers score 🙌

Ha ha! His name is actually HaSean, but everyone calls him Haha. Also, Dix. Don't let the name fool you, he's quite a talented youngster.
CeeDee Lamb - Dallas Cowboys
The Cowboys wide receiver is actually named Cedarian but we prefer CeeDee as well.
Tuanigamanuolepola Tagovailoa - Miami Dolphins
Acho: “Tua Tagovailoa. He is entering his third season.. new offensive HC, brilliant mind. I think this is the year the Dolphins win a play off game.” ⏳👀 pic.twitter.com/feSHhScJOp

Simply known as Tua and hailing from Hawaii, Tua could be the future of the Miami Dolphins franchise.
