The list of true NoDaks taken in draft is not large

It’s a forgone conclusion now that NDSU quarterback Carson Wentz will be taken in the first round of the NFL Draft in April. The list of what we would call notable players who grew up in North Dakota and have been taken in the draft since its inception is 10 or less. The list of players that actually were born in the state is much more than that, but being born in North Dakota and growing up here are two different things. As for the latter, you can include Phil Hansen (Oakes), Jim Kleinsasser (Carrington), Randy Hedberg (Parshall), Dave Osborn (Cando), Steve Myhra (Wahepton) and Dave Piepkorn (Fargo). Hansen and Kleinsasser were second round picks, Piepkorn fifth round, Hedberg eighth round, Myhra 12th round and Osborn 13th round.
