University of Utah tight end Kurt Haws, 6-5, 250, was the first Utah collegiate player selected in this year's NFL draft.

Haws, who had good workouts for scouts, was selected by the Washington Redskins in the fourth round.No other local college players were selected by the time the Deseret News went to press.

Others with a fair chance to be taken in the today's third-through-seven-round draft include Mike Empey, offensive lineman, and Eric Drage and Tyler Anderson, wide receivers, for BYU; fullback Jamal Anderson and wide receiver Bryan Rowley; Utah; and linebacker Jermaine Younger and tackle Jed DeVries, Utah State.
