Posted by: Joe Christensen under Gophers awards and honors Updated: May 8, 2014 - 10:28 AM

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.

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

RB Laurence Maroney (1st round, 21st overall, Patriots)

NT Anthony Montgomery (5th round, Redskins)

C Greg Eslinger (6th round, Broncos)

G Mark Setterstrom (7th round, Rams)
