The P6 in the NFL Draft

Recommended Posts


A number of American Athletic Conference standouts are hearing their names called as the 2019 NFL Draft continues through Saturday in Nashville. 

The American enjoyed its best NFL Draft last season as 18 players from the conference were chosen by NFL teams. The league had 33 players chosen in the last two seasons prior to the 2019 draft.

As expected, the first player from The American to be selected was Houston defensive tackle Ed Oliver, the 2017 Outland Trophy as the nation's top interior lineman. Oliver was chosen by the Buffalo Bills with the No. 9 pick in the draft, becoming the highest pick from The American since former UCF quarterback Blake Bortles, who went No. 3 overall in 2014.

Temple cornerback Rock Ya-Sin was the second player chosen in the second round and the first pick of the Indianapolis Colts. UCF defensive tackle Trysten Hill went later in the second round, going to the Dallas Cowboys with the 58th overall pick.

All-America running back Darrell Henderson from Memphis was tabbed by the Los Angeles Rams in the third round, marking the third time in conference history (2014, 2017) that The American had four players among the top 70 selections.
