To hear your name called at the NFL Draft is a dream come true to every NFL prospect including Sioux Falls native Nate Gerry.

The standout at Nebraska was selected in the 5th round by the Philadelphia Eagles in the 2017 NFL Draft.

Some draft experts had pegged Gerry as a late round to undrafted free agent grade leading up to the draft, but the Eagles got a great value in my mind with this pick.

The dude is a flat out warrior on the field and if he can continue to improve on his cover ability, he could have a good career at the next level.

Gerry attended Washington High School in Sioux Falls before attending the University of Nebraska.
