AMES — Will McDonald says he will be happy to have former Iowa State standouts Breece Hall and Allen Lazard with him as he joins the New York Jets. McDonald was taken by the Jets with the 15th pick in the NFL Draft, becoming the first ISU player taken in the opening round since 1973. He says Hall called him the afternoon prior to the draft.
McDonald says it was his sophomore season in which he led the Big 12 in sacks that he first thought the NFL was a possibility.
The Milwaukee native did not even start playing football until high school and his initial plan was to join the army.
McDonald admits he was a little surprised he was taken with the 15th pick.
Other Cyclones drafted included Xavier Hutchinson in the sixth round by Houston and Anthony Johnson in the seventh round by Green Bay.
