BOSTON (AP) - The Ivy League is a rich breeding ground for doctors, lawyers and economists. But it doesn't produce very many players drafted by the NFL.
This year it's different. Three Ivy Leaguers have a good chance of being taken during the three-day draft that starts Thursday night.
Fullback-tight end Kyle Juszczyk (USE-check) of Harvard is considered the best. Some projections have him being drafted as early as the third round. The others are defensive end Mike Catapano of Princeton and offensive lineman J.C. Tretter of Cornell. They're likely to be late-round picks.
Still, that's an improvement over the past six years when only three Ivy League players were drafted.
But even some Ivy League coaches aren't prepared to say the conference will become a steady pipeline of draftable players.
