You’re looking live at my sister’s basement, which is an homage to the Steelers, I’m sad to say.
Nevertheless, might the Steelers select one of the Georgia Tech’s three first-round prospects in tonight’s NFL Draft?
Depending upon which mock draft you read (there really should be more of those, btw), it’s really hard to predict where Derrick Morgan, Demaryius Thomas and Jonathan Dwyer will go tonight. Though the Steelers with the 18th pick are a possibility for all three players.
But it should be a banner day for the Yellow Jackets, which only once before has had more than one player selected in the first round of the draft. That came in 1979 when the Packers selected running back Eddie Lee Ivery with the 15th pick and the Los Angeles Rams selected Kent Hill with the 26th pick.
Georgia Tech’s first round selections:
Year, Player, Team, Selection
2007 Calvin Johnson, Lions, 2
1998 Keith Brooking, Falcons, 12
1992 Marco Coleman, Dolphins, 12
1979 Eddie Lee Ivery, Packers, 15
1979 Kent Hill, Rams, 26
1964 Ted Davis, Chargers, 8
1963 Rufus Guthrie, Rams, 10
1955 Larry Morris, Rams, 6
1945 Eddie Prokop, Boston Patriots, 4
Overall, Tech has had 200 players selected.
