Linebacker Tavaris Gooden was also drafted in the third round, No. 79 overall to the Baltimore Ravens.Senior quarterback Kirby Freeman, who split time with now undrafted free-agent Kyle Wright in 2007, was informed by the University of Miami coaching staff that he would begin the year third on the depth chart, behind redshirt freshman Robert Marve and true freshman Jacory Harris.
