ATHENS, Ohio - Former Ohio University cornerback Travis Carrie was selected by the Oakland Raiders during the third day of the 2014 NFL Draft, which was held at Radio City Music Hall in New York City.
Carrie was picked fourth (219th overall) in the seventh round. The Antioch, Calif. native becomes the 32nd player in school history to be selected in the NFL Draft and the sixth to be taken in the Frank Solich Era. No current Mid-American Conference institution has had more players drafted over the past seven years.
Ohio has now had a player selected in the NFL Draft in six of the last seven years.
Carrie becomes the second Ohio defensive back to be selected in the NFL Draft since former Bobcat Mike Mitchell was selected by the Oakland Raiders in the second round back in 2009.
Carrie closed out his final year at Ohio by tying for the team lead with four interceptions. His four picks also tied a single-season career high.
In addition, Carrie finished the year with 103 interception return yards, which ranks eighth all-time in school history. On special teams, he finished the year with 267 punt return yards, averaging 12.7 yards per return - a figure that ranked as the league's best for most of the year.
Following the season, Carrie earned All-MAC First Team honors as punt returner and All-MAC Third Team honors as a defensive back.
