Born: 11/3/1993 Chicago , IL

College: Northern Illinois

Experience: 3rd season

High School: St. Rita [Chicago, IL]









Draft 2017

Pick No.96

Selected By: Detroit Lions

Round: 3

Pick (Overall): 32 (96)

Pick Analysis: One of the better players coming out of the Chicago area in 2011, Golladay ended up at North Dakota to start his college career. He was an often-targeted reserve as a true freshman there (30-429, one TD) and then an honorable mention All-Big Sky pick in 2013 as UND's leading receiver (69-884, eight TD). The head coach was fired after that season, however, so Golladay moved back home to play for Northern Illinois. He sat out the 2014 season as a transfer redshirt, then stepped into the line-up without any fears of moving up a level of football. He was a second-team All-MAC pick with 73 catches for 1,129 yards and 10 touchdowns. Golladay was a first-team selection in 2016, picking up his second 1,000-yard season (1,156) and eight scores on 87 receptions.
