#TempleFootball Dominates at the #NFLDraft2017

And now for your weekend sports break… it was a great weekend to be a Temple Owl! Temple University dominated at this year’s NFL Draft which took place this past weekend in Philadelphia, Pa. A record 250,000 plus people attended the draft which was held outdoors for the first time in the NFL’s history. The draft which took place on the steps of Philadelphia’s Art Museum located on Benjamin Franklin Parkway proved to be one for the books. Overall Temple Football had three players drafted including Nate Hairston who was drafted to the Indianapolis Colts in the fifth round; Dion Dawkins who was drafted to the Buffalo Bills in the second round and Haason Reddick who was drafted in the first round to the Arizona Cardinals and was the 13th pick overall. In addition to Hairston, Dawkins and Reddick being drafted, six other Owls were signed on as free agents this past Saturday in Philadelphia. Newly drafted Temple Owl Haason Reddick told Philly.com:

“It means something special is really going on at Temple. I would advise people to open their eyes and watch what’s going on.”

With this past weekend’s draft being the second year in a row that Temple’s football program sent three players to the NFL, Haason Reddick is speaking true words. We’re sure Temple University Head Football Coach Geoff Collins was one happy camper this past week. So proud of Temple Football’s 2017 NFL draftees and even prouder to be a Temple Ooowl! That’s my alma mater! All the best to Temple’s newest draftees in their professional football careers. Check out all of Temple’s 2017 NFL draftees below.
