Michigan State offensive tackle AJ Arcuri was taken second to last in the 2022 NFL Draft by the Los Angeles Rams.

Arcuri, a native of Powell, Ohio, will head across the country after seeing four action filled seasons at Michigan State.

Arcuri joined the Spartans in 2016 and redshirted until 2018 due to an injury.

Arcuri was a four-year letterwinner and played in 40 career games for the green and white, starting 25 of them total, 17 at left tackle and all 13 of his final season. He played all 89 snaps as a senior, totaling 738 in his career for the fourth most in the offensive side of the ball game.

He was named to the Academic All-Big Ten five times, joining an elite group of Spartans in program history. He was also named a finalist for the 2021 William V. Campbell Trophy, presented by the National Football Foundation, where he was also named to their Hampshire Honor Society.

He helped block for Doak Walker Award winner, Walter Camp Player of the Year and the No. 41 overall pick in the Draft to the Seattle Seahawks, Kenneth Walker III.
