The West Virginia Mountaineers sent five players to the 2012 NFL draft.

Three were selected, including a first-rounder.

Defensive end Bruce Irvin was the first off the board, selected by the Seattle Seahawks with the 15th-overall pick. 

The next Mountaineer had to wait awhile for his name to be called.

Linebacker Najee Goode wasn't taken until the early fifth round by Tampa Bay. The Buccaneers liked what they saw in Morgantown and took cornerback Keith Tandy in the next round.

All three of these players, along with Don Barclay and Tyler Urban, who went undrafted, made solid contributions to the West Virginia football program. However, only one can rise up and have the best rookie season in the NFL.
