Godwin Igwebuike S 6' 0 200 lbs

Round Drafted: 
2016 ALL-BIG TEN FOOTBALL SECOND TEAM (COACHES): DB Godwin Igwebuike, Northwestern...Igwebuike led all Big Ten defensive backs and ranked 10th in the country in the regular season with 101 tackles. He had at least eight tackles in eight games, including three double-digit performances and a career-high 15 tackles versus Nebraska. The Pickerington, Ohio, native ranks seventh in the country with 6.3 solo tackles per game.

National Labor Relations Board on Monday threw out a historic ruling that gave Northwestern University football players the go-ahead to form the nation's first college athletes' union, saying the prospect of union and nonunion teams could throw off the competitive balance in college football. The decision dismissed a March 2014 decision by a regional NLRB director in Chicago who said that the football players are effectively school employees and entitled to organize. Monday's decision did not directly address the question of whether the players are employees. "Although we do not decide the issue here, we acknowledge that whether such individuals meet the board's test for employee status is a question that does not have an obvious answer.
