S-burg grad Joseph drafted by Rams

Gurley-Todd-USNews-Getty-FTR

They are the first two local players taken in the same year since 2002, when the Cleveland Browns selected running back William Green (Holy Spirit) in the first round and the Dallas Cowboys took cornerback Pete Hunter (Atlantic City) in the fifth. The Los Angeles Rams will get to make up for lost time with eight picks on Day 3 of the National Football League draft.

In December, he earned the William V. Campbell Trophy, which is given to the best scholar-athlete in football.

Okoronkwo became the fourth Sooners selected, behind No. 1 overall pick Baker Mayfield (Cleveland Browns) and third-round picks Orlando Brown and Mark Andrews (both Baltimore Ravens).

"I did. I was on a visit with the Rams I guess two weeks ago".

Joseph started each game for the Scarlet Knights over the past three seasons, redshirting after an injury in his only game as a freshman in 2013, according to Rutgers.

"I've played all over the field", Kiser said. They open the season Sept 10 at the Oakland Raiders.

He will now get the opportunity to play for a playoff-caliber team in the Rams.

"It's a blessing to have any team show interest in me", Demby said before the draft.

Kiser was the 2017 Campbell Trophy victor (academic Heisman) which is presented by the National Football Foundation.

"You go through the whole process with the combine and workouts and now it's back to football", Demby said. "I had sort of dosed off a bit, just sitting on the couch, and I was awoken to a bunch of people shaking me with a phone in my face". He had 3.5 tackles for loss against Pac-12 opponent Cal and was named First Team All-Big Sky.

Tennessee athletic director Phillip Fulmer was likely referred to Kelly when he told WATE-6 earlier that some players should have stayed another season. On Saturday, they got that pick (No. 160) back from the Broncos in exchange for two sixth-round picks.
