buffalo bandits logoThe National Lacrosse League today announced Buffalo Bandits defenseman Chris Corbeil has been named to the 2010 NLL All-Rookie Team.

Another defensive tackle wouldn’t be taken until 42 picks later, and no DT of impact was added until the fourth round (Cincinnati’s Domata Peko). Considered a second- or third-round pick, Buffalo might have been reaching in taking McCargo, but considering his pre-draft buzz, the move wasn’t terribly surprising to some. Coupled with fellow first-round pick S Donte Whitner, Buffalo had the two players around which it’d build its new Tampa 2 defense.
