Dave Martin/Associated PressMyron Rolle catches a pass during Senior Bowl practice in January.Where in this year’s Draft Myron Rolle would be selected was a point of major debate this spring. The answer is in the sixth round.

After taking a year off from football to study at Oxford as a Rhodes Scholar, the former Florida State safety was selected by the Titans with the last pick of the sixth round, 207th overall.

“I had just taken a nap because I was waiting so long today,” Rolle said. “I had just gotten up, I saw the 615 area code, and they said ‘Myron, are you ready to be a Titan?’ I said, ‘Absolutely.’ ”

Raised in Galloway Township native and a graduate of The Hun School, Rolle earned Associated Press third-team all-America honors in 2008. Rolle studied at Oxford and continued to pursue his goal of becoming a neurologist, but the decision led to some in NFL circles questioning his commitment to football.

“It’s not really so much to prove people wrong, it’s to maximize my own ability and potential,” Rolle said. “I’m athletic, tough and physical, and obviously I have a little bit of intelligence. Now it’s time to put away any enmity toward people in the league and be positive, focus on being competitive and successful. This has been my dream since I was 6.”

Bergen Catholic grad and Stanford tight end Jim Dray was picked by the Cardinals in the seventh round (233rd overall), one pick before the Cowboys took Dumont’s Sean Lissemore, a defensive tackle from William & Mary. Former Rutgers linebacker Ryan D’Imperio was taken 237th overall by the Vikings.
