WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — At least one Purdue player has been selected in each of the last 20 NFL Drafts.

Which Boilermaker has the highest chance of extending that streak to 21 years?

Many experts project linebacker Ja'Whaun Bentley as a late-round pick.

Bentley was recently named Purdue's 2017 "Most Outstanding Player" after leading the team in tackles (97).
