Darryl Allan Ashmore (born November 1, 1969) is a former American football offensive lineman in the National Football League for the Los Angeles/St. Louis Rams, Oakland Raiders and Washington Redskins. He played college football at Northwestern University.[1] He replaced NFL Hall Of Famer Jackie Slater with the St. Louis Rams at right tackle. At Northwestern, after one year of playing offensive line, he garnered All-Big Ten Honors and made the Dean's List academically.

Darryl went on to have an 11-year career in the NFL despite suffering a career-threatening injury during his junior season at Northwestern, where he was a top defensive end in the Big Ten that season and prior. At Peoria High School he was rated one of the top players in the state of Illinois as a senior. He was also named an All-American and received the Scholar Athlete of the Year in the Peoria tri-county area.
