USD's Starr Drafted By The Falcons

May 10, 2014, 6:46 PM

USD's Starr Drafted By The Falcons
VERMILLION, SD -

South Dakota linebacker Tyler Starr was drafted in the seventh round by the Atlanta Falcons Saturday on day three of the NFL Draft.
Starr becomes the second Coyote drafted in the last three years. Offensive lineman Tom Compton was taken in the sixth round by the Washington Redskins during the 2012 draft. Starr is the 13th Coyote to be drafted into the NFL (full list below).
“This is an unreal feeling,” said Starr, who spent the day in his hometown of Little Rock, Iowa, with his family. “We waited all day long for this to happen, and when it did we were overwhelmed. My son, Hunter, turns three tomorrow and it was great to celebrate this day with him. I fly to Atlanta soon and I can’t wait to get started.”
Starr was pick No. 255 overall and the ninth player drafted by the Falcons (full list of 2014 Atlanta draft picks below).
Starr (Little Rock, Iowa/George-Little Rock HS) was the Missouri Valley Football Conference Defensive Player of the Year this past season. He went on to finish ninth in the voting for National Defensive Player of the Year and appeared on numerous All-America teams.
Starr led the MVFC in sacks (9.0), tackles for loss (15.0) and forced fumbles (4) this past season. He finished second on the team in tackles with 71. He also had an interception and was credited with four pass breakups. During his three seasons in Vermillion, Starr accumulated 196 tackles, including a program record 27 sacks and 13 forced fumbles.
