Duke wasn’t expected to have a banner year in the NFL draft, but four guys were taken Saturday.

All of them are surely thrilled to be continuing their dream of playing pro football, or at least having the chance to so but it’s possible that Gray is happier than anyone else: he could be catching passes from the sensational Patrick Mahomes and we’d have to think that would make anyone who plays his position thrilled.

Devery Hamilton, Deon Jackson and Mark Gilbert have signed free agent contracts as well.
