NFL Draft Day is a huge day for college football programs.  College coaches get to see players that they’ve worked get rewarded and move on to the highest level of football competition.   Just as important, they get to use this success as a recruiting tool as they look for the next wave of talent.

Over the last 12 years, the Pitt football program might not have as many wins or championships as expected but one thing they consistently do is put players in th NFL.
