Two major college football NFL Draft streaks came to an unfortunate end this weekend.

For the first time in the modern era of the NFL Draft, the Nebraska Cornhuskers did not have a player selected.

It's the first time in nearly 60 years, snapping a 56-year streak.

Nebraska had three potential NFL Draft prospects, though Devine Ozigbo, Stanley Morgan and Luke Gifford all had to settle for free-agent contracts.

Another major NFL Draft streak ended this weekend, too. Virginia Tech did not have a player selected for the first time in 25 years.

Alabama, of course, had the most players selected in this year's NFL Draft. The Crimson Tide had 10 players taken.
