During the second round of the NFL Draft Friday, two former University of Washington players heard their names announced, marking the fourth consecutive year in which at least one Husky has been selected in the draft.
With the six pick in the second round, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers selected Austin Seferian-Jenkins, making him the first Husky taken in this year's draft. ASJ joins fellow offensive weapons Mike Evans, wide receiver from Texas A&M, and West Virginia running back Charles Sims in the Buccaneers draft class. Seferian-Jenkins will also join former UW linebacker Mason Foster on the Bucs.
Bishop Sankey was the first running back taken off the board when the Tennesse Titans selected him at No. 54. The Titans selection marked the longest any running back has ever had the wait to be the first at the position drafted. With former Titans running back Chris Johnson signing with the Jets this offseason, Sankey will compete with Shonn Greene and Jackie Battle for the starting spot.
God is good! Enjoying this moment w/ family. Ready to get to work. #TennesseeTitans— Bishop Sankey (@BishopSankey) May 10, 2014
Rounds 4-7 will be completed on Saturday.
