Mountain West players selected in the NFL draft

The Mountain West had by far the best draft of any of the non-BCS conferences, however, no players were selected in the first round. Utah's Paul Kruger was the highest player to go at 57 -- he was drafted by the Baltimore Ravens. Sean Smith, who was a possible, though unlikely, first rounder, was drafted by the Miami Dolphins with the 61st pick. Brice McCain went in the sixth round to Texas, while Freddie Brown was drafted by Cincinnati in the 7th.

Utah quarterback Brian Johnson was not drafted, which wasn't a big surprise, but Louie Sakoda being passed over was, at least to me. I thought he would go, though I expect him to quickly sign with a team in the coming days. 

After the jump is a list of those drafted...
