Hey, things can always be worse.
In 1998, USC had only one player drafted (cornerback Brian Kelly).
Just one year earlier, it was a different story. USC defensive tackle Darrell Russell was the No. 2 pick overall by the Raiders. Russell weighed 320 pounds and ran a 4.8-second, 40-yard dash. He was All-Pro in 1998 and 1999.
Tragically, Russell and former USC wide receiver Mike Bastianelli died in a car accident in 2005.
- Linebacker John Houston signed a free-agent contrat with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Offensive tackle Drew Richmond and defensive end Christian Rector are the remaining prospects to sign with a team.
