Bucs draft RB Mike James in sixth round

Mike James, rushed for career-best 621 yards and 6 TDs on 147 attempts as a senior for the Hurricanes, got his name called in the sixth round of the NFL Draft on Saturday.

The Bucs plucked James with the 21st pick, 189th overall. He was the 18th running back taken off the board. 

James was the second Hurricane to be taken in the draft. The Rams drafted cornerback Brandon McGee in the fifth round. 

The Hurricanes have now had a player taken in the NFL Draft 38 consecutive seasons.
