LINCOLN (KMTV) — Former Nebraska defensive lineman Khalil Davis was taken in the 6th round of the NFL Draft by the Tampa Bay Bucs on Saturday.

Davis was taken 194th overall & the 15th pick in the 6th round.

The Blue Springs, Missouri native was named NU's Defensive Lineman of the Year in 2018 & 2019.

The other Husker drafted on Saturday was Khalil's brother, Carlos, who was selected in the 7th round by the Steelers.

Davis finished with a career-high 45 tackles, 12 TFL & 8 sacks last season.

He's the first Husker to be drafted since Tanner Lee went in the 6th round in 2018 & will join fellow former Nebraska standouts Ndamukong Suh & Lavonte David on Tampa's defense.
