It took 16 picks and almost 90 minutes of time on Friday night, but the first B1G player has been selected in the second round of the NFL Draft.
Purdue wide receiver Rondale Moore was selected by the Arizona Cardinals with the No. 49 overall pick.

Moore previously declared for the draft prior to the B1G season. Moore amassed 35 receptions for 270 yards, as well as a rushing touchdown in the 2020 campaign.
After playing in only four games last season due to a hamstring injury, Moore missed time this season with a lower body injury.
Moore burst on the scene his freshman season with 1,471 yards from scrimmage and 14 touchdowns. Moore broke the program record for all-purpose yards (2,215) and was the first freshman in B1G history to be a consensus All-American.
Moore is Purdue’s highest draft pick since defensive tackle Kawann Short went No. 44 overall to the Carolina Panthers in 2013.
