The Arkansas Razorbacks' first round pick drought didn't come to an end on Thursday, but they will get their first second round pick since 2007 as tight end Hunter Henry is the Hogs' first selection off the board as he heads to the San Diego Chargers with he No. 35 pick.

Henry will now flee Fayetteville for the biggest stage of all in professional football as he joins first round pick Joey Bosa in what's prominently known as 'America's Finest City.'

Despite the lack of a first round pick, Henry's selection pushes a streak of at least one Arkansas draftee in the NFL Draft to 21 years in a row, as the last time Hogs went 0-for was all the way back in 1995. Junior Soli was the first man to start this trend and, now, Henry will be the latest.

Congrats to Henry and good luck at the next level!
