Western Michigan, Temple combine for more picks after 2 rounds than Big 12

The Big 12 keeps taking hits during the draft.

After two complete rounds, the conference had just two players have their names called.

To illustrate how bad that is, Western Michigan and Temple have both had two players selected, giving them two more than the Big 12.

Pick No. Name School Team
5 Corey Davis Western Michigan Tennessee
10 Patrick Mahomes Texas Tech Kansas City
13 Haason Reddick Temple Arizona
48 Joe Mixon Oklahoma Cincinnati
63 Dion Dawkins Temple Buffalo
64 Taylor Moton Western Michigan Carolina

To add even more on top of the Big 12's poor showing in the first two rounds, there were just as many players from the FCS and Division II taken as those from the Power 5 conference.

Pick No. Name School Team
44 Adam Shaheen Ashland (Div. II) Chicago
59 Tanoh Kpassagnon Villanova Kansas City

With Texas head coach Tom Herman now in charge in Austin, many are hoping that trend will change in the coming years.
