Happy for all utes and aggies selected, you represent our state well and we hope you stay healthy and have good careers. The ute pipeline to the NFL continues.

Congrats McGill. Definitely a prototype of what NFL teams are looking at in a CB nowadays. Big, physical, with avg speed...basically Richard Sherman (5th round pick).

Congrats to a dude that's grown up and overcome a lot to get to where he is. His injury record no doubt scared some teams away, but this should hopefully be a good landing spot to go in and contribute early on a rebuilding defense. Congrats, Keith, and good luck!

Finally we get a Ute drafted! It's about time! Don't they know we're part of the PAC12?

I can't stand the Raiders, but congrats to Keith. I feel bad for Trevor that he hasn't been selected yet. He knew that has age would be an issue.

Hopefully he can become a contributor. It's one thing to be drafted, but it's another thing to actually be an impact player. Hopefully he can join the ranks of Star, Weddle, Steve Smith, Alex Smith, and Bobby Wagner. All of these players have actually impacted their teams and have helped put guide their teams to the playoffs.

Congratulations to Keith.

I'm shocked that Trevor Reilly is still on the board. He was the reason the Utes lead the Pac-12 (and the nation) in sacks. There are a number of Utes I expect to see picked up in the late rounds but Reilly should have gone much sooner.

I'm glad that McGill got drafted, I just wish it had been anywhere other than Oakland!

@jarka-rus "Only one player picked in the 4th round from a mighty Pac school??? what???"

Perhaps you didn't realize that Utah had double the number of players drafted than BYU and that the PAC 12 had the third most players drafted beating out conferences such as the Big 10, Big 12 and WCC.

Sure says a lot when Utah's best player last season(Reilly)almost doesn't get drafted. The overall talent is much lower than the past (2004,2008). Bad coaching, bad recruiting go hand in hand as it's the same goofs making the decisions.Gonna be hard to turn this sinking ship around. Meyer came to town and built quite a team in 2 short years, Whit has slowly but surely sunk it. Time for Whit to go, even his "trademark" defensive players are a non factor anymore.

Congratulations and good luck to both of these young men. Now the work begins.

"Perhaps you didn't realize that Utah had double the number of players drafted than BYU..."

ONE 40th pick is better than a 116th and a 223rd pick combined - ask ANY NFL team which they'd rather have, 8th pick in the 2nd round, or a late 4th and 7th round pick.

The Lions traded more than that just to move up a few places so they could draft KVN.

btw, you're still living with the delusion that the accomplishments of the big boys of the PAC 12 somehow make bottom dwelling Utah better.

Congratulations to the 5 players drafted. Best of luck to them, I would have anticipated a few more Cougs being drafted. Hope all of them do well.

Congrats the Ute players that were drafted and those that also signed as free agents.

It's a shame a couple of Y fans feel the need to come on this article and talk trash. Same for U fans that say anything negative about Van Noy or the other Y players. These kids are out of college athletics and hope they all succeed at the next level in their life. Funny but these are the same fans that talked up a victory over Texas. How many players did that storied program have drafted this year? Following your logic, that win would look pretty hollow.

SportsFan, "you're still living with the delusion that the accomplishments of the big boys of the PAC 12 somehow make bottom dwelling Utah better."

No, I'm still living with the reality that Utah consistently puts more players in the draft than BYU, so any Y fan smack talks around the NFL draft requires a sanity check.
