BOOLA BOOLA | Bannon ’11 crossing fingers as NFL Draft continues

The third day of the NFL Draft is underway, and Shane Bannon ’11 is watching events unfold with his family.

The former Yale fullback has risen from a relative unknown to a bona fide professional prospect recently. Two weeks ago, he was nowhere to be found on CBSSports.com’s list of the top 81 tight end prospects. Last week, he debuted at No. 18.

Bannon has even garnered attention from the Wall Street Journal, which profiled his improbable path to attention yesterday.

Check back for updates if Bannon hears his name called.
