Round Drafted: 
Notre Dame

Saw action in 12 games and started 11 at left guard on an offensive line which was a finalist for the inaugural Joe Moore Award ... missed the Navy game (Oct. 10) and most of USC (Oct. 17) with an ankle injury ... part of an offensive line that helped the Irish average 5.63 rushing yards per carry (eighth-best in the FBS) -- a modern (post WWII) school record ... Notre Dame ranked 27th nationally in total offense, averaging 466.4 yards per game, its third-best mark since setting a school record in 1970 by averaging 510.5 yards per game ... Notre Dame was one of 11 programs nationally to average 205 yards rushing and 250 yards passing per game in 2015 (Irish had not accomplished this feat since 1970) ... Notre Dame averaged 207.6 rushing yards per game (28th in the FBS), the best rushing output since 2000, including six games with 200+ yards (Texas, Virginia, Georgia Tech, UMass, USC and Stanford) ... paved the way for first-year RB C.J. Prosise, who rushed for 1,032 yards (second-fewest carries needed to reach 1,000 yards) and recorded the 18th 1,000-yard rushing season in school history, and freshman RB Josh Adams, who set a freshman single-season school record with 835 yards rushing ... blocked for an Irish rushing attack that recorded 457 yards vs. UMass (Sept. 26) -- the best single-game rushing total by Notre Dame in 23 years, and 299 yards at Stanford (Nov. 28) -- the most by an opponent in David Shaw's five seasons (35 carries for an 8.5 per-carry average against nation's No. 22 rush defense) ... helped the Irish register a pair of 90+ yard TD rushes (Adams 98 vs. Wake Forest, Prosise 91 vs. Georgia Tech) ... Notre Dame had just two rushes of at least 90 yards in the first 126 seasons of Irish football ... the 98-yard TD run by Adams vs. Wake Forest was the longest play from scrimmage in Notre Dame history and longest rush by a freshman in NCAA history ... blocked for 10 individual 100-yard rushing games -- the most by the Irish since 1983 (11) ... three different Notre Dame players recorded 100-yard rushing games.
