Hawaii well represented on final day of NFL Draft

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Two football players with ties to the Hawaiian Islands were selected during the final rounds of the NFL Draft on Saturday, and at least three more will get free agent opportunities with teams across the NFL.

Trevor Davis, a wide receiver who was recruited to Hawaii by Nick Rolovich before transferring to Cal after Norm Chow became head coach, was selected in the 5th round by the Green Bay Packers. He'll be paired with another former Berkeley Bear -- quarterback Aaron Rodgers -- once he arrives in Green Bay.

Kamehameha Kapalama graduate Kamu Grugier-Hill, a defensive back from Eastern Illinois, was taken a round later, 208th overall, by the New England Patriots. Former Rainbow Warrior running back Joey Iosefa is already a member of the team.

For the third time in the last four years, no Hawaii players were drafted, but at least two have agreed to undrafted free agent deals. Offensive lineman Ben Clarke is now a member of the Kansas City Chiefs, while quarterback Max Wittek will join the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Former Punahou and UCLA kicker Ka'imi Fairbairn agreed to a deal of his own with the Houston Texans.
