The Huskies had the most players chosen from any school. Florida State was runner-up with nine.On Sunday, the second day of the seven-round draft, Jeremy Brigham, Washington's backup tight end last season, was the first Husky chosen, going in the fifth round to Oakland with the 127th selection.
Also in the fifth round, linebacker Jerry Jensen was chosen by the Carolina Panthers with the 136th pick and two-time All-America guard Benji Olson, who left the Huskies after his junior season, was taken by the Tennessee Oilers at No. 139.
In the sixth round, wide receiver Fred Coleman was drafted by the Buffalo Bills at No. 160.
And, finally, in the seventh round, defensive end Jason Chorak went to the St. Louis Rams with the 236th selection as a compensatory pick. Five players were chosen after Chorak before the draft ended.
Chorak was the Pac-10 Defensive Player of the Year as a junior.
The Huskies taken on the first day were wide receiver Jerome Pathon, safety Tony Parrish and tight end Cam Cleeland in the second round. Center Olin Kruetz and running back Rashaan Shehee were drafted in the third round.
The Huskies had 11 players drafted in 1983 and 1992, but that's when there were 12 rounds in the draft.
Washington State had one player chosen, guard and long snapper Jason McEndoo, taken on the draft's second day and he was selected by the Seattle Seahawks in the seventh round with the 197th pick.
On Saturday, Ryan Leaf, the Cougars' highly acclaimed quarterback, was the second player chosen by the San Diego Chargers.
