Utah State outdoes itself


There were plenty of surprises in last weekend's NFL Draft, but perhaps none more so than the relative glut of Utah State Aggies who were drafted.

G Shawn Murphy and WR/KR Kevin Robinson each found NFL homes; Murphy went in the fourth round to the Dolphins and Robinson was picked up by the Chiefs in the sixth. The flying pigs in frozen hell found this particularly interesting.

The duo are the first USU players chosen in the NFL draft since Chris Cooley in the third round of the 2004 draft. Murphy and Robinson also become the first two Aggies to be picked in the same draft since 1989 when wide receiver Kendal Smith and quarterback Brent Snyder were both selected in the seventh round.

Utah State's excitement was tempered, however, when they realized that they will be minus two NFL draftees next year.
