Thought I'd share some Draft facts with you. I just finished updating the Roster series thread
to reflect these Draft picks. I don't add them to the roster until they actually make the team.

He is the 13th player we've drafted from USC. The last was Buehler in 2009
#40. Bruce Carter, LB, North Carolina.
He is the 7th player we've drafted from North Carolina, but the first since Ebenezer Ekuban in 1999.

He is the 10th player we have drafted from Oklahoma. The last was Manuel Johnson in 2009.
#110. David Arkin, OL, Missouri St.
He is the first player we have ever drafted from Missouri State and is only the 2nd player ever drafted from that school, the first was an Eagles pick last year.
