Kurt Campbell Drafted by Green Bay Packers

Albany, N.Y. – University at Albany’s Kurt Campbell was taken in the seventh round of the NFL Draft by the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, April 24. Campbell, who was the 245th player selected, is the first UAlbany football player to be chosen in the draft.


Campbell, projected as a strong safety at the pro level, earned four varsity letters as a Great Dane defender. He finished his career with 120 tackles and 19 pass break-ups while playing both roverback and cornerback.


"I’m both surprised and excited," said Campbell, who is the first Northeast Conference player to be taken in the NFL Draft since 2002 when the Dallas Cowboys chose Sacred Heart’s Deveren Johnson in the sixth round. "I am just glad that I still get to play football. Now the work starts."


In addition, All-America offensive tackle Geir Gudmundsen agreed in principle to a free-agent contract with the Buffalo Bills. Gudmundsen, who will most likely move to guard or center in the NFL, made 44 consecutive starts at left tackle on UAlbany’s offensive line. In 2004, he was named to the AFCA Division I-AA Coaches’ All-America first team, and earned a spot on both The Sports Network and Football Gazette I-AA Mid-Major All-America squads.
