Cyclones' Osemele taken in 2nd round by Baltimore

Posted:

Former Iowa State offensive lineman Kelechi Osemele was selected by the Baltimore Ravens as the 60th overall pick in the NFL Draft Friday in the Radio City Music Hall. Osemele, a second-round pick, earned All-Big 12 honors in three seasons as a Cyclone.

The Cyclone was home in Houston with family when he got the news.

"They called me about 10 minutes before the announcement," Osemele said. "Everybody here is happy."

Osemele was Iowa State's first second round pick since Keith Sims in 1990. Sims was the 39th player chosen overall. The 6-6, 333-pound Osemele was a consensus first-team All-Big 12 honoree by the league's writers and coaches in 2011.

The offensive tackle is rated highly by many NFL scouts, although targeted for guard in the NFL. He started 44 straight games at Iowa State.
