Utah alum Tony Bergstrom drafted by Raiders
University of Utah offensive tackle Tony Berstrom was drafted by the Oakland Raiders on Friday as the last pick of the 3rd round of the NFL Draft.
Oakland selected Bergstrom in their first pick of the draft, and the 95th pick overall.
The 6-foot, 5-inch, 313 pound tackle received a grade of 59.0 on NFL.com’s analysis. He was a team captain for the Utes last season and was named a first-team all-Pac-12 offensive lineman. Bergstrom is a local; he played at Skyline High School.
NFL.com says, “Bergstrom, a three-year starter at Utah, missed two years of playing time while on a religious mission and is a relatively old prospect.
“He is mature, reliable and didn’t allowed many sacks in college. A very good mover in space, he gets to the second level well. Although he hasn’t played guard, he has the potential to succeed at that position in the NFL. Wherever he plays, Bergstrom is a solid, low-risk prospect who could eventually develop into a starter.”
