Like George Farmer, tight end Randall Telfer struggled to stay healthy during career at USC. However, he did have 12 touchdowns in four seasons and was drafted by the Cleveland Browns today with the  198th pick in the NFL Draft.

Telfer had his best season as a freshman when he had 26 receptions for 273 yards and five touchdowns. He had at least one touchdown in four of his last six games and had at least four catches and over 40 receiving yards in three of those games. In his next two seasons combined, Telfer had 18 catches for 178 yards and five touchdowns. Injuries plagued him in both of those seasons.

In 2014, Telfer split playing time with Bryce Dixon and finished the season with 21 catches for 197 yards and two touchdowns.

Telfer is the first Trojan tight end drafted since Rhett Ellison in 2012.

Randall Telfer will join his fellow Trojan alum Christian Tupou.
