Tampa Bay selects UW’s Austin Seferian-Jenkins

The Tampa Bay Bucs selected Washington tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins with the No. 38 overall pick in the second round Friday.

The 2013 John Mackey Award winner as the best tight end in college football, Seferian-Jenkins left UW with a year of eligibility remaining.

The pick came two selections before the Seahawks were set to choose at No. 40.

He is the first UW player taken in the draft with running back Bishop Sankey yet to be selected.

Seferian-Jenkins will join a trio of other UW players with Tampa Bay, where the offensive coordinator is now former Cal coach Jeff Tedford.

Linebacker Mason Foster, defensive end Daniel Te’o-Nesheim and safety Dashon Goldson all also play for the Bucs.

He is the highest-picked UW player since QB Jake Locker went No. 8 overall to Tennessee in 2011.
