Richburg was selected by the New York Giants.
"Excitment. That's the word I've been using. It's a great celebration. A lot of hard work put in, a lot of adversity. I'm just so excited to be a part of a great organization like the Giants. Just to see my name pop up on the screen was a really cool deal. Something I've dreamed about my entire life" he said just a few hours after being selected. Richburg plans to fly to New York on Sunday.
Richburg's teammate in high school and college, Crockett Gillmore, was also drafted on Friday night. Gillmore was selected by the Baltimore Ravens.
