The South Carolina football program has been among the best in the country at putting talent in the NFL. Pro Bowlers, future Pro Football Hall of Famers, and long-time pros have come out of Columbia in recent years, so it is no surprise that the Gamecocks have several notable alums who will be playing the NFL Playoffs starting this weekend.

Despite there being 13 South Carolina football alums on NFL Playoff rosters, only 7 teams have former Gamecocks suiting up this postseason. The Dallas Cowboys (4), Miami Dolphins (2), San Francisco 49ers (2), Green Bay Packers (2), Baltimore Ravens (1), Pittsburgh Steelers (1), and Los Angeles Rams (1) will trot out players who will be very familiar to fans of the garnet and black.

Several other former Gamecocks have connections to NFL Playoff teams but are not on active rosters.

Former Gamecock linebacker/defensive back/quarterback/wide receiver Rod Wilson is on the staff of the Kansas City Chiefs, serving as a defensive assistant. He won a Super Bowl with the team last year and in the 2019-2020 season.

South Carolina football alum Brandon Shell began the year with the Buffalo Bills but retired during the preseason to spend more time with his family. Defensive tackle Taylor Stallworth was waived by the San Francisco 49ers at the end of the regular season. All-time leading scorer Parker White was signed by Green Bay to battle for the kicker job but didn't make it to the start of the season. Offensive lineman Eric Douglas spent some time with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers during the preseason but didn't stick.

There are 13 players from the University of South Carolina who are on NFL team's active rosters for the postseason. Let's take a look at every Gamecock who will take part in the 2024 NFL Playoffs.
