Vanderbilt wide receiver Earl Bennett was drafted in the third round Sunday in the NFL Draft, while Commodore linebacker Jonathan Goff was a fifth-round pick by the New York Giants.
This marks the first year since 2001 Vanderbilt has had three players selected in one draft. On Saturday, offensive tackle was a first-round pick by the Chicago Bears.
Bennett, the leading receiver in Southeastern Conference history with 236 receptions, chose to bypass his senior season in 2008 to enter this year’s NFL Draft.
"Everything worked out good," he said. "I don't have any regrets with anything I did."
Goff led Vanderbilt with 113 tackles in 2007.
