Welcome to the USFL, Augustana Football. On Wednesday afternoon, Augustana alum Jake Lacina was the first center selected in the draft, with the first pick of the 20th round. Lacina was taken by the New Jersey Generals.

It won't be Lacina's first shot at professional football, as the former Viking was signed as an undrafted free agent with the Minnesota Vikings after college.
