The NFL draft is as much a college day as it is an NFL phenomenon.
Because it is through the draft that many schools gain respectability, talent through recruits wanting to someday be in the draft and financial security. If you don't believe the last one just ask Nebraska University about Ndamukong Suh's gift of $2.6 million due to the draft.
So how did Nebraska do this season in the draft? Three players were taken in the first five rounds and at least two signed as free agents after the draft was completed.
Compared to 2009, these results were better. The same amount of players drafted, but in higher rounds in 2010.
Cody Glenn played on the Colts special teams in the Super Bowl, Lydon Murtha ended up with the Dolphins and Matt Slauson played with the Jets.
In free agency, Zach Potter signed as a tight end with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
So who's going to succeed in 2010 as a rookie from Nebraska and who might falter? Who could still be picked up and who will be left on the wayside?
