Former University of Utah offensive lineman Tony Bergstrom was selected by the Oakland Raiders in the third round (95th pick overall) of the 2012 NFL Draft.
The 6'5", 313-pound Bergstrom started for the Utes for three years after serving an LDS Church mission and earned first-team All-Pac-12 honors his senior year.
The Raiders have had a fair amount of turnover on their offensive line, but it's a position of importance for them after they made a big trade last season to acquire quarterback Carson Palmer. His protection will be a key factor going into 2012, so Bergstrom will likely have an opportunity to prove himself, if only as a backup at first.
Due to the Palmer trade, the Raiders actually didn't have a pick in the first three rounds. This pick was granted to them later by the NFL.
