Texas breaks school record for most players selected in seven-round draft

The 2024 NFL draft has been kind to the Texas Longhorns.

While the draft is currently ongoing in the sixth round, Texas has already set the record for most players selected in a seven-round draft. The previous record of seven players selected was set in 2007.

The Longhorns have seen nine players selected through the first five rounds of the 2024 NFL draft. There are still two prospects on the board in defensive back Ryan Watts and wide receiver Jordan Whittington that could hear their named called before the draft concludes.

Even more impressive is that five Longhorns were selected within the first two rounds. Steve Sarkisian and his staff have significantly improved the player development in Austin.
