Quite possible. He was projected 3rd/4th round and there were 6 DTs taken in the 1st round, so if anyone else was looking for D-line upgrades...they're going fast.
According to NFL's rating system, there's 3 only DTs available that are ranked above him.

EDIT - make that 2 DTs above him (and we're still in the 2nd round)

Heck. Yes.

Congratulations to Khalen and his family. How awesome to be drafted by team not too far from home. Hope he blossoms even more in the NFL.

PS anyone catch Rodney Harrison announce LAC chargers pick and the PA announcer said “from Western Illinois Rodney Harrison”

Do you Think coach Elliot has reached out and tried to repair that relationship with our university?

Ooof....I don't know. From everything I heard it was a pretty rough "breakup". He was well before the situation with Coach Patterson, so healing that rift, while awesome, didn't really affect the situation with Harrison. I haven't heard anything suggesting that had changed recently, but maybe things are starting to thaw out a bit.
