End of an era.
UCLA guard Jeff Baca was drafted in the sixth round by the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. He is the first UCLA offensive lineman selected by an NFL team this century.
Tackle Kris Farris was taken in the third round by the Pittsburgh Steelers in 1999.
Baca and UCLA teammate Jeff Locke were drafted by the Vikings. UCLA’s Datone Jones and Johnathan Franklin were drafted by the Green Bay Packers.
Make the goodbyes short. You’re now mortal enemies. Vikings and Packers are one of the NFL’s most intense rivalries.
Fellas, picture UCLA vs. USC ... only with cheese.
