I've been a NDSU Bison fan my whole life and seeing these guys get to play for the NFL teams is really awesome. The next question is who is next from NDSU to go to the NFL. The big talk this year is Trey Lance but there's hopefully a few more guys that will get drafted. NDSU is known for developing great players. It's awesome coming from a small state like North Dakota to have these guys playing at a professional level. Who do you think will be in the draft this year? If Trey Lance gets drafted this year what number will he go?
