As far as the NFL Draft goes, Saturday was a great day if you are a Texas Tech Red Raider.
With wide receiver Michael Crabtree selected No. 10 overall by San Francisco and free safety Darcal McBath going to Denver with the No. 48th overall pick, this marks the highest two Texas Tech players have ever been chosen in the same NFL Draft.
"I'm loving it,'' McBath said.
While Crabtree is the highest drafted WR ever for Tech, McBath is the first Red Raider defensive back drafted since Kevin Curtis was chosen by San Francisco in the fourth round in 2002.
Also, besides the three players drafted from Missouri, Tech had more players -- Crabtree and McBath -- drafted in the first two rounds Saturday than any other team in the Big 12.
Must be the system.
