Longhorns in the Draft

It was a great weekend for the Texas Longhorns at the NFL Draft. Seven Horns were drafted, including two in each of the first two rounds, and one in the fourth, fifth and sixth rounds. Interestingly, 12 starters (plus Aaron Ross) from the 2005 National Championship team have now been drafted with five more still in school. Below is a list of Longhorns, their new professional teams and where they went in the draft:

Michael Griffin -- Tennessee (1)
Aaron Ross -- New York Giants (1)
Tim Crowder -- Denver Broncos (2)
Justin Blalock -- Atlanta Falcons (2)
Brian Robison -- Minnesotta Vikings (4)
Tarell Brown -- San Francisco 49ers (5)
Kasey Studdard -- Houston Texans (6)

In addition, the following Horns went undrafted but have signed on with teams as free agents:
Selvin Young -- Broncos
Lyle Sendlein -- Cardinals

Tully Janzen and Greg Johnson may very well be invited to some NFL training camp for special teams work. Ramonce Taylor probably would have been drafted but reports are he came in about five pounds too heavy.

I am sure Lyle "I am a complete moron who cannot pass Math for Elementary School teachers" Sendlein is happy to be going home.
