Former San Diego State wide receiver and ‘Aztec For Life’ Brice Butler has just been drafted by the Oakland Raiders

The 6-foot-3, 210-pound wide receiver was drafted in the 7th round of the 2013 NFL Draft. He was the 209th overall pick in the draft.

Butler impressed scouts at the San Diego State Pro Day in March by posting a 4.36 40-yard dash, a 39-inch vertical jump and a 10-foot-9 broad jump. He is now the second in his family to play in the NFL, as his father Bobby Butler played for the Atlanta Falcons.

Congratulations to Brice!
