Wheeler, Choice get Drafted

Philip Wheeler becomes the 1st Jacket drafted in the 2008 NFL draft, going in the 3rd round to the Indianapolis Colts. He was the 30th selection in the 3rd round, the 93rd pick overall.

Tashard Choice was drafted in the 4th round by the Dallas Cowboys with the 122nd overall pick.

Both guys head to good teams with a chance to win a lot of games. Wheeler certainly goes into a great situation with one of the best teams in the league with all-everything P.Manning at QB. I find Dallas's pick of Choice a bit curious, since they already picked RB Felix Jones earlier in the draft. Just not sure where Choice will fit in.

Wheeler's selection continues quite a streak of Jacket linebackers drafted. He becomes the 5th GT LB drafted since 2002. Gary Guyton is likely to be drafted in the next few rounds as well, adding to that streak.
