Just looked it up, they also had a QB (Ryan Lindley) go in the 6th round.
At the press conference introducing Hoke as the Aztecs' new coach, Hoke told reporters, "Number one, this program is going to be a program that's based on toughness. To play football at the Division I level, to compete academically at the Division I level and balance both, you have to be tough-minded. You have to be physically tough and mentally tough." San Diego State compiled a 2–10 record the year before Hoke arrived. A sports writer for the San Diego Union-Tribune described the challenge facing Hoke: "It's going to be difficult for [Brady Hoke], because with the Aztecs, we're basically talking about a sea change in everything from A to Zed. This isn't Urban Meyer taking over at Florida, where the cupboard already was full of epicurean delights. State has rotting skeletons in its closet. The Aztecs haven't had a winning season since 1998, just seven since 1980." Hoke won a reputation for recruiting at San Diego State. His brother Jon Hoke, an assistant coach in the NFL, noted: "I don't care where it is, whether it's San Diego State or anywhere else, if there's one thing he can do it's recruit. He's as good at it as anybody. He's relentless with recruiting. He has a great feel for parents and a great feel for players. As long as you give him the budget to (recruit) the way it needs to be done, he'll be fine."
Hoke really built a foundation at SDSU and it was a much tougher job than people give him credit for. The recruiting part as we have seen, is right on the money.

If Hoke and Borges recruited Gavin Escobar? 6'6 TE went in the 2nd round to the Cowboys.

Martin, Mouton, Hemingway and Schilling were the last of Carr's recruits.
Denard should be the first one and Taylor Lewan might have been the #1 overall pick.
