Round 1

Aldon Smith – DE – Missouri
Blaine Gabbert – QB – Missouri

Cam Heyward – DT – Ohio State

Kyle Rudolph – TE – Notre Dame
Jaiquawn Jarrett – DB – Temple
Torrey Smith – WR – Maryland

Round 3

Vincent Brown – WR – San Diego St.
Alex Green – RB – Hawaii

Round 4

Greg Salas – WR – Hawaii
Chimdi Chekwa – DB – Ohio St.

Round 5

Kealoha Pilares – WR – Hawaii
Brandon Burton – DB – Utah*
Dion Lewis – RB – Pittsburgh
Jason Pinkston – OL – Pittsburgh
Jermale Hines – DB – Ohio St.

Round 6

Dwayne Harris – WR – East Carolina
Aldrick Robinson – WR – SMU
Caleb Schlauderaff – OL – Utah
Brian Rolle – LB – Ohio St.
Ross Homan – LB – Ohio St.

Round 7

Derek Newton – OL – Arkansas State
Da’Rel Scott – RB – Maryland

  1. clearly this helps all schools on navy’s future schedules. play navy and go pro!

    but seriously, pretty surprised Ohio State only had 4 players drafted. were they that young or does that show the coaching job of the vest?

    wonder if NFL teams will start running a 1-6-4 against gabbert?

  2. Interesting info – thanks Mike.

    Yeah but we’ve got “…25 guys who marched in a parade!”

    Which begs the question – how many of these guys were Parade All-Americans and/or how many “stars” did they have when they signed with their respective colleges? (Sorry I can’t research those questions – have to get back to work.)

  3. They were pretty young, but 4 players from one school is still a lot. I was sort of surprised that Rutgers had none, not that I was expecting anyone in particular to get selected.

  4. Well, we played OSU in ’09, so they had some guys drafted in the ’10 draft also. Same with Rutgers.

  5. OMG a blog post!

  6. Wonder what the total record was of the guys drafted against Navy.

  7. someone should ask Muhammad Wilkerson or Jaiquawn Jarrett if they heard a whistle

  8. so, for this year, the better paths to the NFL were:

    Pitt – 5
    tOSU – 5
    Hawaii – 3
    Missouri – 3
    Temple – 2
    SDSU – 2
    Utah – 2
    MD – 2
    ECU – 1
    SMU -1
    Rice – 1
    ARK St. – 1
    ND – 1
