USF football got into the NFL Draft earlier than the experts had expected, as cornerback Kayvon Webster was picked in the third round by the Denver Broncos, going with the No. 90 pick in the NFL Draft.
Webster, USF's first draft pick since 2011, will have the privilege of learning from veteran cornerback Champ Bailey in Denver. He's the seventh-highest pick ever by a Bulls player, and the first drafted by Denver.
A starter in 32 games during his Bulls career, Webster had a career-high 82 total tackles as a senior, including four tackles for loss and six pass breakups. He's perhaps best known for scooping up a Notre Dame fumble and racing 96 yards for a touchdown to spark USF's 2011 win at Notre Dame. He had just three interceptions in his Bulls career, but the former USF sprinter impressed scouts with a solid 40-yard time at the NFL combine workouts and in private workouts.

The Bulls could hear more names called in Saturday's final four rounds, with defensive tackle Cory Grissom as the most likely to get picked and linebacker Sam Barrington as another possibility.
