Louisiana defensive back Dwight "Bill" Bentley has seen his dream come to fruition.

Bentley was selected in the third round by the Detroit Lions, pick #85 overall.

Bentley was a first team All Sun Belt Conference pick after a senior season which saw him return two interceptions for touchdowns.

Bentley is one of two Cajuns expected to be selected.  TE Ladarius Green was not selected by the end of the third round, but should be taken fairly early tomorrow.

Bentley is the first UL player to be drafted with Mark Hudspeth as head coach.
