Former University of Richmond cornerback Justin Rogers was drafted in the seventh round of the National Football League Draft Saturday.
Picked 206th overall by the Buffalo Bills, Rogers is the first Spider football player drafted since defensive end Lawrence Sidbury in the 2009 Draft.
Rogers finished as the Colonial Athletic Association’s all-time leader in kickoff return yards and ended his career with 12 total interceptions, three of them returned for touchdown.
Rogers is joined in the draft pool by fellow Spiders: Martin Parker, Kevin Grayson and Eric McBride. They have yet to be drafted to this point in the draft.
