Bookmark and Share

NEW YORK, NY --  Tyler Starr has gone from Central Lyon Lion, to South Dakota Coyote and now, Tyler Starr is an Atlanta Falcon!

The Falcons selected Starr in the 7th round with the 255th overall pick, second to last, in the NFL Draft.

Starr is the Coyotes career leader in sacks and was the Missouri Valley Football Conference defensive player of the year last year in his senior season.

He's the first Coyote to be drafted since Tom Compton in Washington two years ago and the 13th in program history.

Starr's former USD teammate, Jarrid Bryant, signed with St. Louis as an undrafted rookie free agent.  Meanwhile, SDSU's Bryan Witzmann and Doug Peete will be teammates again after each of them signed on with Houston as undrafted rookie free agents.

CORRECTION-In the broadcast Central Lyon was referred to mistakenly as the "Wildcats".
