Marcus Henry Drafted by the New York Jets at Pick #171

The fourth Jayhawk to come off the board was Marcus Henry, the kid who only received a scholarship offer to come to Kansas a couple weeks before fall practice began prior to his freshman season. He is certainly a tremendous success story; from being destined to Northeast Oklahoma University to being drafted in the 6th round of the NFL Draft.

For Jets information, check out NY Landing Strip, the SB Nation Jets blog.

Congratulations to Marcus Henry, it is awesome both for him and the University of Kansas football program that we are getting all of these players drafted. It sounds pretty good to have four players be drafted in one draft, and we might not be done yet. Both James McClinton and Brandon McAnderson have outside shots at being picked up in the next 75-or-so picks of the NFL Draft.

Awesome, awesome news.
