Nineteen players from the 2018 Collegiate Bowl heard their name called over the weekend in Dallas during the NFL Draft.
Tarvarius Moore was the first taken off the board. The safety out of Southern Mississippi was drafted in the third round (95th overall) by the San Francisco 49ers.
One round later, 2018 Collegiate Bowl MVP Troy Apke (Penn State) was selected by the Washington Redskins. The Penn State safety, whom NFLPA Collegiate Bowl National Team Coach Mike Martz called “the best player we’ve had,” recorded seven tackles, one forced fumble and a 56-yard interception return for a touchdown during the Jan. 20 contest for top draft-eligible prospects.
Moore and Apke were two of four Collegiate Bowl alum drafted in the first 150 picks. William Dissly, a tight end, went at No. 120 to Seattle and defensive end John Franklin-Myers went at No. 135 to the Los Angeles Rams.
