Caleb Campbell was drafted by the Detroit Lions in the seventh round of the 2008 draft and made his NFL debut in 2010.

First off, hats off to Caleb Campbell. He's handled himself with class since this wild ride began when the Detroit Lions drafted him in the seventh round of the NFL draft in April.

It's a big weekend for Army football and the Black Knights aren't even taking the field for a game. Still, history can be made by strong safety Caleb Campbell. Campbell could become the first Army player selected in the NFL draft since the Green Bay Packers took quarterback Ronnie McAda in the seventh round of the 1997 draft.
