Here's a look at Rutgers in last 10 NFL Drafts

Greg Schiano did a pretty good job pumping in the talent during his run at Rutgers from 2001-11, and that turned into some productive NFL Drafts in recent years.

The 2013 draft was especially fertile with seven picks. Few schools across the nation can match that type of productivity in any singular draft. And in 2010, Rutgers had two first-round selections in OT Anthony Davis and CB Devin McCourty. But there have been some lapses as Rutgers didn’t have any picks in four (2005, 2006, 2011 and 2014) of the last 11 drafts.

Rutgers should add to its recent NFL draft haul this year, with WR Leonte Carroo likely the first Scarlet Knight off the board. Others who may get selected are LB Steve Longa, LB Quentin Gause, OT Keith Lumpkin and RB Paul James.

Here is a look at how the Scarlet Knights have performed in the last 10 NFL drafts.
