Late Rounds of the NFL Draft Should Be Full of Huskers

I've heard estimates that as many as ten Huskers could go in today's final rounds of the NFL Draft. We certainly expect to see Roy Helu, Jr. and Niles Paul go fairly early, then the waiting game begins. Eric Hagg and Dejon Gomes? Probably.  Alex Henery? Pretty sure.

Then there are some x-factors.  Ricky Henry?  In the cards. Not to mention some backups that have gotten some speculation.  Adi Kunalic's big leg might be enticing to an NFL team with the new kickoff rules. And don't dismiss Zac Lee either. If his arm is healed, his skill set might mesh better with pro offenses than what he was asked to do at Nebraska his last two years.

We'll keep this thread updated throughout the day. We'll treat it like a game thread!

  • Washington trades up to nab IB Roy Helu, Jr. in the fourth round with the 105th pick.
  • Philadelphia grabs K/P Alex Henery in the fourth round with the 120th pick.
  • Washington picks S Dejon Gomes in the fifth round with the 146th pick.
  • Washington (who else!) picks WR Niles Paul, also in the fifth round, with the 155th pick.
  • Pittsburgh picks OG Keith Williams in the sixth round with the 196th pick.
  • Cleveland picks S Eric Hagg in the seventh round with the 248th pick.

The seven Huskers drafted is the highest total since 2001, when seven also were selected.  This was the 42nd straight year that at least three Huskers were drafted.
