The Miami Hurricanes are a prestigious collegiate program that have had many successes in the NFL Draft. They hold records for longevity and talent, such as having one player drafted in the first round of the NFL Draft in every season from 1994-2008.
However, they have not had a first round pick since 2008. The last person that went in the first round was Kenny Phillips. Duke Johnson could be the next first-round pick. Entering into his junior year, Johnson is fully healthy after breaking his ankle eight games into the season.
He’ll be back with redemption on his mind, and these five reasons show why could be the next great Miami Hurricane first-round pick.
