Murray was selected in the 4th round by the Kansas City Chiefs after a very successful collegiate career. According to the Pioneer Press, Muarry did not miss a single game or practice during his time at the U of M.

Campbell was also selected in the 4th round just ten picks after his Gopher teammate. Campbell told the Star Tribune that Atlanta will give him a chance to start at weakside linebacker.

He joins former Gopher teammate Ra'Shede Hageman who was drafted by Atlanta in 2014.

With the two picks today, the University of Minnesota has had 6 players taken within the first 150 picks in back-to-back NFL Drafts.
