Dedicated to the HATRED of all things trOJan


Final score:  UCLA 5, U$C 4 — After Josh Rosen and Kolton Miller get selected in the 1st Round, UCLA sees three more players get drafted on Day 3 (Kenny Young, Scott Quessenberry, and Jordan Lasley), while no trojans get picked

The 2018 NFL Draft is now complete, and has seen FIVE Bruins get selected.  Five is not a bad number.  Of course Alabama had 11 draftees, and a handful of schools had 6 or 7, but u$c had only 4, and for the first time ever, NONE on Day 3 (Rounds 4-7).

The biggest trojan letdown was Wide Receiver and early entry Deontay Burnett, who was invited to the NFL combine, but obviously, failed to impress.  His fellow WR Steven Mitchell also plummeted all the way off the Draft Board.  In fact, a total of SIX trojans who thought they would be drafted, weren’t.  Of course they were all signed as Free Agents, and could go on to long careers in The League, but their battles will be a little more uphill than they expected.

For UCLA, Day 3 saw Inside Linebacker Kenny Young go in Round 4 to the Baltimore Ravens.  Then in the 5th Round, the L.A. Chargers snagged Center Scott Quessenberry, and Lasley but not least, Wide Receiver Jordan Lasley got the call, also from the Ravens.  So Young and Lasley will have each other to lean on next season in Baltimore as they face that tough road of adjusting to Pro Ball.

Above, pictured in the collage, are Young, Quessenberry, and Lasley.  Below is new Raider Kolton Miller, and then, 38 more photos of the UCLA Spirit Squad from Bruin Day 2018.  Still more CHEER PHOTOS to come this week.  Stay tuned.
