If Brett Favre‘s consecutive starts streak can come to an end (assuming he remains retired), then so too can the University of Miami’s streak of producing first-round picks.
Miami has had at least one player drafted in the first round for the past 14 years, dating back to 1995. The streak started with DT Warren Sapp, who went to the Buccaneers, and continued all the way to last season with S Kenny Phillips, who went to the Giants.
But this year, the only Miami player at this year’s scouting combine is Hurricanes CB Bruce Johnson, whom NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock does not project as a first-day pick.
So barring the unforeseen, one of the great streaks in NFL history is about to end.
