Boston College offensive tackle Anthony Castonzo has been selected 22nd overall in the first round of the NFL draft by the Indianapolis Colts. Castonzo was shown cheering the news surrounded by friends and family at his home in Illinois.
Castonzo set a Boston College record by starting 54 consecutive games for the Eagles. He was an All-ACC first-team selection and an All-America third-team selection. Nominated for a Rhodes Scholarship, the biochemistry major was named a National Football Foundation Scholar-Athlete last December.
