After three days and seven rounds, 18 players who were selected to the American Family Insurance ALL-USA Football Teams as high schoolers were chosen in the NFL Draft. Here is a rundown of the players chosen on Day 3.
- Connor McGovern, an ALL-USA offensive lineman in 2011 from Shanley (Fargo, N.D.), was chosen at No. 141 by the Denver Broncos. He played guard at Missouri.
- John Theus, an ALL-USA offensive tackle in 2011, at the Bolles School (Jacksonville) was selected at No. 145 overall by the San Francisco 49ers. He played collegiately at Georgia.
- Brandon Shell, an ALL-USA offensive lineman in 2010 at Goose Creek (Charleston, S.C.), was selected by the New York Jets at No. 158. Shell attended South Carolina.
- Christian Westerman, an ALL-USA offensive tackle in 2010 at Hamilton (Chandler, Ariz.) was chosen at No. 161 in Round 5 by the Cincinnati Bengals. Westerman played at Arizona State. “I’m good, man,” Westerman said from Alabama, where he had watched the draft with his family. “It was very stressful. You know, we get told something and then it doesn’t go to plan. It turned into a stressful situation after that second round, but even through each round I was just wondering when I was going to go to Cincinnati, so it was funny they ended up taking me.”
- Running back Kelvin Taylor, a two-time ALL-USA selection in 2011 and 2012 at Glades Day School (Belle Glade, Fla.) was selected at No. 211 by the San Francisco 49ers. The pick was a compensatory pick at the end of the round. Taylor played for the University of Florida.
- Tight end Thomas Duarte, an ALL-USA selection in 2012 before his career at UCLA, was selected at No. 231 overall by the Miami Dolphins.
