    A little trivia for ya.

    The 2011 NFL draft marked the 8th time that multiple CU players were taken in the first round. There was a year when 3 buffs were taken in the first round, what year was it?

    "Asking the audience" (see poll) will actually get you the right answer here...

    3 from CU, 2 from Wyoming, and 1 from CSU all in the first round that year? That was a helluva year for talent out of the front range.
