Arizona’s Parks goes to Denver in 6th round, Wright to Cleveland in 7th
Four Arizona collegiate players were selected on Saturday in the NFL Draft — two each from Arizona State and Arizona.
ASU guard Christian Westerman was the first off the board, to Cincinnati in the fifth round with the 151st overall pick.
Arizona safety Will Parks went to Denver in the sixth round (219th), followed by ASU senior Devin Lucien to New England (225th) and Arizona linebacker Scooby Wright to Cleveland (250th) in the seventh round.
Wright, after a long, emotional wait with his family in California, celebrated with a jump in the family pool.
Among those who went undrafted were Arizona wide receiver Cayleb Jones, ASU slotback/running back D.J. Foster and ASU quarterback Mike Bercovici.
Arizona’s Jones reportedly signed a free-agent deal with Philadelphia, receiver David Richards with Atlanta, and defensive lineman Reggie Gilbert with Green Bay.
Social media reported that several ASU players had signed as undrafted free agents, including Foster with New England, Bercovici with San Diego, defensive lineman Demetrius Cherry with San Francisco, wide receiver Gary Chambers with Buffalo, cornerback Lloyd Carrington with Washington and linebacker Antonio Longino with Cincinnati.
