UConn players hoping to hear names called in next three days

Well the NFL Draft is finally here. After months of hype and more mock drafts posted than I could ever care to count, the three-day event kicks off tonight.

Last year was a special time for former Huskies as five went in the draft. This year the number is expected to be much smaller as Shamar Stephen and Yawin Smallwood are the only UConn products expected to get taken. However, in March a total of 12 former Huskies worked out for NFL scouts so perhaps another player caught the eye of a team and can get into a camp like Nick Williams and Michael Smith did a season ago. Williams saw some time with the Washington Redskins while Smith got a long look from the Houston Texans.

Here's a video look back at the UConn pro day
