ATHENS, Ohio - Former Ohio University wide receiver LaVon Brazill was selected by the Indianapolis Colts in the third day of 2012 NFL Draft, being held at Radio City Music Hall in New York City.
Brazill was picked 36th (206th overall) in the sixth round. The Lantana, Fla., native becomes the 30th player in school history to be selected in the NFL Draft and the fourth to be taken in the Frank Solich Era.
Brazill becomes the first player from Ohio to be selected in the NFL Draft since former wide receiver Taylor Price was taken in the third round by the New England Patriots in 2010.
In 2011, Brazill set the single season school record for yards receiving (1,146), receptions (74) and touchdowns (11) en route to earning All-MAC honors. He is also the all-time career leader in receptions (189) and yards receiving (2,511). His 18 career touchdowns rank second to Terrence McCrae.
Brazill closed out the year by surpassing 100 yards receiving in seven of the Bobcats' final 10 games, including Ohio's final game in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl where he recorded 108 yards receiving to earn Most Valuable Player honors to propel the Cats to their first-ever bowl victory.
