Maryland just had its third player selected in the NFL Draft.
Linebacker Moise Fokou was picked by Philadelphia in the seventh round, joining Darrius Heyward-Bey (first round to Oakland) and Kevin Barnes (seventh round to Washington) as Terps picked this weekend.
It’s a remarkable continuation of Fokou’s football career. Of course, he began his college career at Division III Frostburg State, transferred, and eventually earned a scholarship and later a starting spot at Maryland.
There’s still another 24 picks left, so the watch for Dan Gronkowski, Jaimie Thomas and Edwin Williams to go remains on.
