Bergstrom enrolled in school in the 2008 spring semester. He played in 10 games and started at left tackle against University of Nevada-Las Vegas, finishing with three knockdowns, two cuts and a pancake block. He also recorded two knockdowns and two cuts against Weber State and a pancake block against San Diego State. Bergstrom also saw action on special teams and was named Academic All-MWC and to the Athletic Director's Honor Roll.


Bergstrom became the starting right tackle in 2009, leading the offensive line in total plays with 816 during the regular season. The coaches graded him at 81% on the year, with 662 wins of his 816 plays. He had 29 cuts and 12 pancake blocks for the season. His nine cuts against San Diego State was the best by a Ute all season and his highest grade of the year in a single game was 95% against fierce rivals BYU. He was also an Academic All-MWC.


Bergstrom again started every game at right tackle and again led the offensive line in total plays with 584 in the 10 graded games. He did not allow a sack all season and he graded out at 84% on the season, winning 485 of his 584 plays. He had 14 cuts and two pancake blocks for the season. He again dominated San Diego State, winning 61-of-70 plays. He was voted to the Second-Team All-MWC.


In 2011, Utah transferred to the Pac-12 conference and Bergstrom as team captain continued as the starting right tackle. He started in all 12 of the games he was fit, missing most of the rivalry game against BYU and the entire Washington game due to a knee injury. He led the Utes with an overall grade of 85% on the season, winning 546 of his 639 plays during the regular season. He was the best-graded Ute linemen in 6 games; earning 88% against Montana State, 91% against Oregon State University, 85% against University of Pittsburgh, 90% against University of California-Los Angeles, 89% against Washington State University and tied for the best grade with 92% against University of Colorado. He was named to the First-Team All-Pac-12 at the end of the season.

Bergstrom played 48 career games at Utah, starting 38 at right tackle.

2012 Senior Bowl

Bergstrom was invited to the 2012 Senior Bowl. He played as a guard, the first time in his career that he has ever played the position.

Oakland Raiders

Bergstrom was drafted 95th overall in the 2012 NFL Draft by the Oakland Raiders. As the Raiders had traded their first, second and third round picks in the draft, Bergstrom became their first pick at the end of the third round when he was taken with the Raiders' compensatory selection awarded to them for the loss of Nnamdi Asomugha in the 2011 Free Agency period.

Although a tackle throughout his college career, Bergstrom was drafted as a guard by the Raiders. Current Assistant Offensive Line Coach and former All-Pro guard Steve Wisniewski has been credited with discovering Bergstrom. Wisniewski watched and interviewed Bergstrom at the 2012 Senior Bowl. The Raiders believe Bergstrom's quickness will translate well into their new Zone blocking scheme, which favors smaller, fleet-footed linemen over bigger, more powerful linemen.

Houston Texans

Bergstrom signed with the Houston Texans on March 9, 2016.

On April 13, 2017, Bergstrom was released by the Texans.

Arizona Cardinals
