The first installment of 'The Road' followed North Dakota State quarterback Carson Wentz's injury-shortened senior season. The second installment, released Tuesday, June 7th, follows his rise to the second overall pick in the NFL Draft.
In the 2016 NFL draft, only two players who actually grew up in the state of North Dakota got drafted. But that was enough to earn North Dakota the title of 'Most NFL Picks Per Capita' according to USA Today.
Now that we know Carson Wentz is a Philadelphia Eagle, it is time to take a look at some other former NDSU players because Wentz is not necessarily the only player who recently left the Bison to have a future in the NFL.
Twitter has never been more alive in the state of North Dakota than it was Thursday night (4/28) when NFL commissioner Roger Goodell announced that the Philadelphia Eagles had selected Carson Wentz with the second overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft.
