When Brock Osweiler was selected with 57th overall pick by the Denver Broncos in Friday's second round of the 2012 NFL Draft, he became the highest drafted Sun Devil since 2007.

He was then joined in Denver Saturday morning by cornerback Omar Bolden, who was one of the team's fourth round picks. The duo gives Denver a pair of potential-laden playmakers for years to come.

After that, many expected that other former Sun Devils like wide receiver Gerell Robinson, center Garth Gerhart, and yes, linebacker Vontaze Burfict would then hear their names called.

However, the next 152 selections did not contain another Arizona State player.

Despite missing out on the dream of being drafted, their path to the NFL is far from closed. All three players, along with wide receiver Aaron Plfugrad and offensive lineman Dan Knapp should all receive free agent contracts. With the expansion of the offseason rosters, others such as safety Clint Floyd and linebacker Shelly Lyons could also get a camp invite.

Stay tuned as teams are able to sign player after the draft, and we'll be on top of any Sun Devils inking free agent deals.
