Doug Baldwin makes one of his four catches against former head coach Jim Harbaugh and the 49ers on Sunday.
Doug Baldwin makes one of his four catches against former head coach Jim Harbaugh and the 49ers on Sunday.

Using Ted Miller's list of Pac-12 players in the NFL as a guide, here's a quick look at how Stanford's former players fared in Week 1:

Oshiomogho Atogwe, FS, Washington

Atogwe played all 57 defensive snaps in the Redskins' 28-14 win over the Giants and registered four tackles. The free agent acquisition from the Rams is expected to form one of the better safety duos in the NFC along with LaRon Landry, who missed Week 1 with a hamstring injury.

Doug Baldwin, WR, Seattle

Andrew Luck's favorite target last season had four catches for 83 yards and a touchdown in his NFL debut, a 33-17 loss to former coach Jim Harbaugh and the 49ers. Baldwin, whose impressive preseason included a dazzling kickoff return for touchdown, is a finalist for NFL Rookie of the Week honors. Show him some love.

Greg Camarillo, WR, Minnesota

Camarillo, who took a significant pay cut last week, didn't play in Sunday's loss to the Chargers. 

Jim Dray, TE, Arizona

A special teams standout for the Cardinals, Dray suffered a strained left pectoral muscle in the preseason and did not play in Arizona's season-opening win against Cam Newton and the Panthers. 

Sione Fua, DT, Carolina

Sione Fua made two tackles in his NFL debut.

Toby Gerhart, RB, Minnesota

The former Heisman runner-up had two carries for 16 yards in the Vikings' loss to the Chargers. 

Amon Gordon, DE, Kansas City

The seven-year pro played sparingly in the Chiefs' 41-7 loss to Buffalo.

Erik Lorig, FB/TE, Tampa Bay

Lorig, who had two catches for 32 yards in the Buccaneers' final preseason game, didn't get into the box score in Tampa Bay's loss to Detroit on Sunday.

Owen Marecic, FB, Cleveland

Marecic, who didn't make much noise in the Browns' season-opening loss to Cincinnati, says his team has high expectations this year.

Evan Moore, TE, Cleveland

Moore had three catches for 35 yards and a touchdown in defeat. 

Alex Smith, TE, Cleveland

Cleveland's other Tight End U representative didn't have a catch against the Bengals.

Richard Sherman, CB, Seattle

Sherman made a quiet debut, but celebrated with Baldwin after his TD catch. 

Will Svitek, OT, Atlanta

Svitek and the Falcons lost to Chicago, 30-12.

Leigh Torrence, CB, New Orleans

Torrence had one tackle in the Saints' loss to Green Bay last Thursday. 

Ryan Whalen, WR, Cincinnati

Whalen didn't play in Cincinnati's win over Cleveland.
