Ocho Who?

Jerome SimpsonWith the 46th pick in this year’s NFL draft, the Cincinnati Bengals selected Coastal Carolina wide receiver Jerome Simpson. (Even though Michigan got the #1 pick overall, Simpson went a few picks before Wolverines QB Chad Henne.) Not only was this the highest pick in school history, it’s the highest pick in conference history. Of course, that wasn’t a huge accomplishment: the only other football player ever drafted out of the Big South Conference was Tyler Thigpen, Coastal’s QB that went in the seventh round last year to the Kansas City Chiefs.
