As expected, there weren't any Utes taken in this years draft, however, there were a few players selected from other Mountain West schools:
San Diego State quarterback Kevin O'Connell was selected in the 3rd round by the
Indianapolis Colts New England Patriots.
UNLV OLB Beau Bell was selected in the 4th round by the Cleveland Browns.
New Mexico wide receiver Marcus Smith was selected in the 4th round by the Baltimore Ravens.
BYU's OLB Bryan Kehl was selected in the 4th round by the New York Giants.
San Diego State's Tyler Schmitt was selected in the 6th round by the Seattle SeaHawks.
San Diego State's Brett Swain was selected in the 7th round by the Green Bay Packers.
San Diego State receiver Chaz Schilens was selected in the 7th round by the Oakland Raiders.
Not a great draft for Mountain West programs, but clearly San Diego State cleaned up. It's a wonder, with all this talent, how they continue to suck in football. The Aztecs consistently are at the top of the conference in terms of draft selections, yet fail to have any of that success translate into wins. So while Aztec fans are rightfully proud of getting 4 of their players picked, they have to be frustrated that all they have to show for it on the football field is a bunch of losing seasons.
