The draft pickings have been slim for Indiana over the last 10 years with just 12 selections.
The Hoosiers didn?t have any selections in 2012 or 2013. And they also went pick-less in 2007 and 2009. And where are the linebackers? The last Hoosier LB picked was Van Waiters in 1988. The last time Indiana had a first-round pick? You have to go back to 1994, when wideout Thomas Lewis went No. 24 overall to the Giants. That could change this year, as offensive tackle Jason Spriggs could be a late first-round selection. The other Hoosiers most likely to be selected are quarterback Nate Sudfeld and running back Jordan Howard, an early entry.
Here is a look at Indiana over the last 10 drafts.
