Ra’Shede Hageman will be in New York City tonight, hoping his name gets called during the first round of the NFL Draft. His former Gophers teammate Brock Vereen could get the call Friday, when the second- and third-round picks are announced.

The Strib’s Master Tesfatsion has more on Hageman and Vereen's draft prospects here. The Gophers haven't had a player chosen in the NFL draft since 2010, when the Broncos got a third-round steal in Eric Decker.

Here's a look back at where other Gophers have been selected over the past 10 drafts:

2010

WR Eric Decker (3rd round, Broncos)

LB Nate Triplett (5th round, Vikings)

2008

S Dominique Barber (6th round, Texans)

2007

TE Matt Spaeth (3rd round, Steelers)

2006
