Schwartz talked about his reaction to being drafted by the Browns saying, "It is real exciting. It was a cool feeling to pick up that phone and hear it all come to fruition."
He joins former Golden Bear teammate Alex Mack, a center with the Browns. "He texted me and said congrats and that he will show me the best places to eat in Cleveland," Schwartz said. "Alex has helped me through this whole process. It will be a lot of fun to play with him again."
Schwartz also joins LB Scott Fujita, who has played with the Browns for the past two seasons.
Kendricks joins former Cal stars Nnamdi Asomugha (CB) and DeSean Jackson (WR) with the Eagles. Asomugha, a nine-year veteran in the NFL and considered one of the league's elite at his position, played his first season in Philadelphia last fall. Jackson, who was drafted in 2008 by Philadelphia, has played the last four seasons with the Eagles.
Anger was not only the first punter selected in this year's draft, it was the highest selection for a punter in nearly 20 years. Anger's selection was the highest pick for the position since 2005, when Todd Sauerbrun was selected by the Chicago Bears with the 56th overall selection.
On learning about his selection on the phone, Anger said "I went kind of numb for a second and my heart started racing. I heard congrats we are going to pick you with the next pick."
On being selected by Jacksonville, Anger said "I hit it off well with the Jacksonville coach when he came out for a workout. I am definitely excited to be a Jaguar."
He joins fellow former Bears Tyson Alualu (DE) and Nick Harris (P) in Jacksonville. Alualu, the 10th overall pick of the 2010 NFL Draft, has played the last two seasons with the Jaguars. Harris, an 11-year NFL veteran, played his first season in Jacksonville last fall.
With four more rounds set for tomorrow in the NFL Draft, look for many more Golden Bears to hear their name called.
