On a wall in the tunnel connecting the home locker room to the tunnel, there is a collection of portraits of former Princeton players with NFL experience. During this weekend’s NFL draft, we will find out whether any recent graduates will earn a precious spot on that wall. The likeliest candidate is quarterback Chad Kanoff, who broke all-time University records in career passing yards, single season passing yards, and completion percentage in the 2017 season and has drawn the attention of scouts from several NFL teams. In any case, in anticipation of the most exciting days of the long football offseason, we have compiled a list of Princeton players who have heard their names called in the draft over the past few years.
