UT Shutout in NFL Draft
The Texas Longhorns made NFL draft history this week.
And not in a good way.
For the first time since 1937, the Longhorns failed to have a player selected in the NFL draft. Texas was one of just four schools from college football’s five power conferences (Big 12, SEC, ACC, Big Ten, Pac-12) to suffer the ignominious feat. Illinois, Northwestern, and fellow Big 12 member Kansas were the others.
The Texas shutout, however, was one of the big surprises of the draft.
