The wait is finally over. The first Washington Husky prospect is off the board in the 2012 NFL Draft, as the Pittsburgh Steelers selected defensive tackle Alameda Ta'amu with the 109th pick in the fourth round on Saturday.

Ta'amu was a four-year starter for the Huskies, starting 37 of his final 38 games at Washington. He was a two-time Honorable Mention All-Pac-12 pick.

The Huskies are expected to have three other players picked in the draft - RB Chris Polk, OL Senio Kelemete, and WR Jermaine Kearse.
