Pitt and Penn State were fairly well-represented in last month’s NFL Draft, with each school sending three players into the league via the annual draft. The western Pennsylvania region also saw three players selected.
The first local player taken was no surprise, as Pitt defensive tackle Aaron Donald went 13th overall to the St. Louis Rams.
