Nebraska’s Streak Of Multiple NFL Draft Picks Ends In 2017

New, 70 comments

It was a good run, but it has ended.

With the only selection of Nathan Gerry to the Philadelphia Eagles in the 5th round, the 2017 NFL Draft marks the end of Nebraska Football’s multiple players selected.

The streak, which started back in 1963, spanned 54 years. The last time Nebraska had less than one player drafted was in 1962, when no players went in the selection process.

Even with the lack of selection, I do anticipate multiple players taking undrafted free-agent jobs. However, all good things must come to an end.

Per Huskers.com, here’s the list of selected players, not including Gerry, in that whole streak.
