Former Golden Gopher teammates Eric Lair and Duane Bennett were both lucky enough to sign contracts with the Green Bay Packers, while Anthony Jacobs signed with the Minnesota Vikings.
As a senior, Lair, a 6-foot-2, 238-pound tight end started three while finishing with 11 catches for 158 yards and a touchdown. He caught 38 passes as a junior.
Bennett rushed for 639 yards (3.8 average) and three touchdowns as a senior, and he returned a kickoff for a touchdown against Wisconsin. The 5-foot-9, 213-pound running back's 2,126 career rushing yards is No. 13 in school history.
Jacobs was a four-year letterman for Minnesota. He started all 12 games during his senior season with the Gophers, registering 26 tackles (13 solo and 13 assists). He recorded six tackles-for-loss and one sack during his senior campaign. Jacobs also tallied one sack and forced one fumble last season.
