The NFL Draft is one week away. From Friday April 19th till Tuesday April 23rd, Hook’em Headlines will breakdown each of the last 5 draft classes for the Texas Longhorns. Today we will breakdown the 2008 Texas Longhorns NFL Draft class.

Players Drafted in the 2008 NFL Draft:

Limas Sweed (2nd Round, 53rd overall)

Jamaal Charles (3rd Round, 73rd overall)

Jermichael Finley (3rd Round, 91st overall)

Tony Hills (4th round, 130th overall)

Frank Okam (5th round, 151st overall)

Best player:

Jamaal Charles

Talk about a 3rd round steal for the Kansas City Chiefs. Jamaal currently has 5,818 all purpose yards and 24 TDs. He is currently 1,534 rushing yards away from breaking the all time Chiefs rushing record set by former Longhorn Priest Holmes. And he missed an entire season because of a torn ACL in 2011. If he stays healthy for the next 4 to 6 years, he could hit 10,000 rushing yards and 5,000 receiving yards. If he does that, he might make it into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Jermichael Finley was a close second but with Jamaal Charles being more of a potential hall of famer, he gets the nod here.
