Former New Mexico State defensive back Davon House was drafted by the Green Bay Packers in the fourth round as the 131st pick overall of the 2011 NFL Draft. House, a native of Palmdale, Calif., becomes the first Aggie football player to be drafted since 2003, when Siddeeq Shabazz was drafted to the Oakland Raiders with the last pick of the draft.
House becomes the highest draft pick for the Aggies since 1989, when Joe Campbell was selected by the San Diego Chargers in the fourth round as well.
House left NM State as a two-time first team All-WAC selection and ended his career with the Aggies ranked sixth all-time in interceptions for a career with 11 and first in interception return yardage with 319. He returned three interceptions for a touchdown in his career, tallying 198 tackles, 46 pass break ups and three fumble recoveries. In 2010, House led the team with two interceptions, 57 tackles and 10 pass break ups.
