Trae Waynes is headed to the NFL

Former Michigan State cornerback Trae Waynes has been selected by the Minnesota Vikings.

Trae becomes the highest Michigan State player selected since Charles Rogers in 2003. He also extends the streak of MSU having a player drafted every season since 1967.

Trae's decision to enter the draft early was a good one; it's wise to avoid the possibility of injury and get to the NFL as quickly if you can if you're a surefire first-rounder.

Trae also becomes the second two-star to early draft entry story under Mark Dantonio. Running back Le'Veon Bell was the first.

Congrats Trae, from The Only Colors!
