Another Round

The 2nd and 3rd rounds of the 2011 NFL Draft have come and gone and ACU's Edmond Gates, projected as high as a late 2nd round pick, is still on the board. Four more wide receivers were selected in the 3rd round, upping the total for all three rounds to 11.

Gates told me he "can't explain" the feeling of waiting to hear his name called. I asked if the feeling was good? Bad? Nervous? He answered "good nervous."

That's how a lot of us who've followed him and cheered him on the last four years feel.

The 4th round begins Saturday at noon EDT.
