Colorado offensive lineman Arlington Hambright became the third Colorado player selected in the 2020 NFL Draft on Saturday, when the Chicago Bears used a seventh-round pick to select him.

Hambright, the 12th pick in the seventh round (226th overall), joined wide receiverLaviska Shenault Jr. (second round, Jacksonville) and linebacker Davion Taylor (third round, Philadelphia) as Buffaloes to hear their names called in the draft.

"I feel like I can play any position on the offensive line and I feel like that's part of the reason why they selected me," Hambright said. "I'll just try to learn every position on the line and I think I can play either or, inside or out."

The 6-5, 300-pounder started all 12 games for the Buffs last season at left tackle after coming in as a graduate transfer from Oklahoma State.

Hambright finished the year with 75 knockdown blocks, 12 touchdown blocks and 14 perfect plays on passing touchdowns.
