The 2011 NFL Draft was held Thursday-Saturday in New York City and when it was all said and done seven Nebraska Cornhuskers were picked by NFL teams. The Washington Redskins picked three Huskers which had a lot of people thinking what’s going on in the nations capital?
Prince Amukamara was first to go as he was the #19th pick in the 1st round the New York Giants
Roy Helu was the 8th pick in the 4th round to the Washington Redskins
Alex Henery was the only place kicker taken in the draft and he went to the Philadelphia Eagles with the 23rd pick in the 4th round
Dejon Gomes was picked next by the Washington Redskins #15 in the 5th round
Niles Paul was the the other player picked by the Redskins as he was selected with the 24th pick in the 5th round
Keith Williams was chosen by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the 6th round with the 31st pick
Eric Hagg was the final Husker picked in the draft as he was drafted by the Cleveland Browns in the 7th round
Overall getting seven players selected was nice. Former players like D.J. Jones, Mike McNeill, and Ricky Henry will get looks at by teams that can sign free agents once the lockout is lifted. Right now players can’ t do a whole lot but sit back and see how things go as far as the lockout is concerned.
Congrats to everyone that got drafted and to those that did not, good luck in the free agent pool!
