2008 No. 10 - 8 Hokies Go in NFL Draft

We're counting down the Top 10 moments in Virginia Tech sports from the 2007-08 season. The moments are judged on level of pride it brought to Hokie Nation, how great the accomplishment was and how much attention did it bring the Hokies.

No. 10

Virginia Tech had eight players selected in the 2008 NFL Draft, the second-most for any school behind USC. It spoke to the level of athlete Virginia Tech has and how well the coaching staff prepares its players for the NFL.

The Hokies had one first-round selection in 2008. Offensive tackle Duane Brown was the 26th overall pick by the Houston Texans. In the second round, cornerback Brandon Flowers was taken by Kansas City and wide receiver Eddie Royal was taken by Denver.

Brown was the seventh player in Virginia Tech history to go in the first round of the draft, the sixth under Coach Beamer.
