Brink Selected in NFL Draft
April 27, 2008
PULLMAN, Wash. - Former Washington State quarterback Alex Brink was selected by the Houston Texans in the seventh round of the 2008 National Football League Draft, Sunday.
Brink was the 16th pick in the seventh round, and the 223rd pick overall. The Cougars have had at least one player selected in each of the last 14 drafts.
Brink (Eugene, Ore.) threw for 3,818 yards this past season en route to being named second-team All-Pacific-10 Conference. Brink garnered all-conference accolades three times during his WSU career, and was named the ARA Sportsmanship Award winner this past season.
Brink's 2007 passing yardage was the second-highest single-season total in school history. He completed 305-of-503 passes for a completion-percentage of .606, the fourth-best in WSU history. The senior also threw 26 touchdown passes, which ranks tied for third on the single-season list.
In 2007 Brink took over as the WSU career leader in passing yardage (10,913), touchdowns (76), attempts (1,451) and completions (848). Brink, one of the most prolific passers in conference history, ranks third and fifth in the Pac-10 in yards and touchdowns, respectively, and is only the sixth signal-caller in conference history to throw for more than 10,000 yards and toss 70-or-more touchdowns.
