During his time at Purdue Ryan was very fun to watch. He left with a lot of records, but he really seemed to do it the right way as well. How he flew under the radar during the recruiting process is a great reason why I don’t follow recruiting. One of the best defensive ends ever at Purdue was not really highly thought of as a recruit. He was highly thought of when he left though as he was drafted 16th overall by the Washington Redskins tonight. It will be fun to watch him represent Purdue well in the NFL.
Another great guy from the Big Ten JJ Watt was drafted 11th by the Houston Texans. He is another great guy that will represent the Big Ten well.
