Su'a-Filo, Seferian-Jenkins, Lee lead Pac-12 run on day two of NFL Draft

As I wrote this morning, there was a lot of down time for Pac-12 prospects in the first round of the NFL Draft.

But the second round turned out to be a parade for some of the conference's top prospects and recognizable stars, starting from the very first pick of the day.

First second-round pick, UCLA guard Xavier Su'a Filo (Houston) was the first of an mini-run on Pac-12 guys, which totaled six in the first 22 picks of the second round. Not long after came the playmakers: Washington tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins (Tampa Bay) and USC receiver Marqise Lee (Jacksonville) went back-to-back, and Colorado receiver Paul Richardson (Seattle) was not long after.

Rounding up the Pac-12's second-round picks were Stanford linebacker Trent Murphy (Washington) and Washington running back Bishop Sankey (Tennessee).

The Trojans were the first to see a former player go in the third round when center Marcus Martin (San Francisco) went with the sixth pick. Oregon State defensive end Scott Crichton (Minnesota) was picked to bolster the Vikings' line, while Arizona State tackle Will Sutton (Chicago) bolstered the Bears' front.

Two skill players finished out the draft's second day: Oregon receiver Josh Huff (Philadelphia) got picked by his old coach Chip Kelly, and Cal tight end Richard Rodgers (Green Bay) got paired with another former Golden Bear named Rodgers.

All told, 11 Pac-12 players went on Friday, and 14 total have gone in the NFL Draft, though Utah has notably not yet gotten a pick off the board. Arizona is also waiting for its first draft pick.
