Former Ware County and Troy University star Leodis McKelvin selected 11th overall in 2008 NFL Draft.

Troy University cornerback Leodis McKelvin was the first former Georgia high school football player to be selected in Saturday's 2008 NFL Draft.

The 5-10 1/2, 186-pounder was picked 11th overall by the Buffalo Bills thus becoming the first cornerback selection of the draft.

McKelvin starred at Ware County in 2002 and 2003 as a lock-down cornerback, wide receiver and special teams player. As a senior in '03, he recorded 51 tackles and six interceptions in helping lead his squad to a 9-2 record and a regional title. As a junior the season prior, he posted 60 tackles and six interceptions.

At Troy University, McKelvin played himself into an early NFL selection as both a star in the defensive secondary and as an elite punt and kick returner.
