Longhorns football four-year starter Sam Ehlinger is off to the NFL with the Indianapolis Colts as the 218th overall draft pick.


He follows in the footsteps of childhood role model Colt McCoy, who was the last drafted player from the University of Texas in 2010. The former UT quarterback will likely compete for a backup role as the Colts acquired quarterback Carson Wentz.

The 22 year old was born to two UT alumni, where he grew up dreaming of playing with UT. The past four years he started in 43 of his 46 games and was captain for two season.

Stats: Ehlinger completed 62.5% of his passes for 11,436 yards, 94 touchdowns and 27 interceptions.
