Micah Kiser and Andrew Brown, two of Virginia's key players who led the Cavaliers back to a bowl appearance, were selected Saturday in the fifth round of the NFL Draft. Brown, a defensive end from Chesapeake, was taken 11 picks later by the Cincinnati Bengals.

As part of their bottom-heavy draft, the Rams picked running back John Kelly (Tennessee), offensive lineman Jamil Demby (Maine), defensive lineman Sebastian Joseph (Rutgers) and linebacker Trevon Young (Louisville) in the sixth round, and linebacker Travin Howard (TCU) and defensive lineman Justin Lawler (SMU) in the seventh round. Kiser was the 10th pick in the fifth round.

After all, just look at what happened with New Orleans a year ago, when starter Mark Ingram and former Vol Alvin Kamara teamed up to have a fantastic season for the Saints. "At the same, if it doesn't, I'll be ready to play football wherever I end up". Kiser also was the victor of the 2017 Campbell Award, given to the nation's top overall player on the field and in the classroom.

"I can tell you that, from a mental standpoint, to be active on game day, number one you're going to have to be able to learn two positions", Snead said. He earned Second Team All-American honors, and shared the Big 12 Player of the Year Award with Texas linebacker Malik Jefferson.

He had 9.5 sacks at SMU last season and finished his collegiate career with 20.5 and 226 tackles.


ESPN draft expert Mel Kiper said Kiser is among the best inside linebackers in the draft, and said prior to the draft that he could go in the third or fourth round.

Special teams contributions will also be a priority as several core players are expected to fill larger roles this season.

DALLAS, TX- Two Tennessee Vols, three Virginia Tech Hokies and an Appalachian State Mountaineer were selected on the final day of the National Football League draft.

Okoronkwo didn't become a starter for the Sooners until his junior season, but in those 26 games, he recorded 29.5 tackles for loss and 17 sacks.
