The nation's leading scorer and Virginia Tech Hokie Erick Green sat through the first round of the NBA Draft only to hear 30 names called that were not his own. But that all changed shortly after 11:30 pm when the Utah Jazz took Green with the 16th pick in the 2nd round, 46th pick overall.

Green averaged just over 25 points per game with the Hokies last season with little help from his team mates, now green turns his focus to making a difference on an NBA court.
