The San Diego State football team didn’t have a player drafted in the NFL Draft for the first time since 2007. Still, the Mountain West Conference had a successful weekend. Take a look at some of the news and notes from the 2010 NFL Draft.

Wallace signs with Miami
Former SDSU wide receiver Roberto Wallace signed as an undrafted rookie free agent with the Miami Dolphins after the draft concluded on Saturday. Wallace, a 6-foot-4-inch, 223-pound wideout, struggled to catch the ball throughout his career with the Aztecs, but his measurables made him an intriguing prospect at the NFL level. During SDSU’s pro day, Wallace ran a 4.41 second 40-yard dash, had a 36 1/2-inch vertical and did 19 bench presses at 225 pounds.

Wallace recorded 73 receptions, 940 receiving yards and four receiving touchdowns in 31 games with the Aztecs.
