Another NFL Draft

Recommended Posts

Shocked Ejiya wasn’t picked but I predict four young men will get invited to camp and make us proud. We are getting there, although I have to admit I shook my head reading the stats and watching the highlights of some of these guys picked.

F'n inexcusable. It's a stigma attached to UNT and if I'm a conference mate I'm using that heavily in negative recruiting. There is no reason whatsoever a WR with 4.3 speed, a 37 1/2 vertical, and a productive college player should not have been drafted. And don't get me started on a 6'3"  230ob LB with 120 tkls, 25 tkls for loss...TWENTY FIVE, plus 9 sacks. This is without doubt because they are UNT players. 0 explanation. 

Damn shame.

I don't understand how the Packers draft Ka'Dar Hollman, but pick up Nate Brooks in free agency. Nate Brooks stats were much better than his.

Four undrafted free agents in one year.  Is that some sort of new record at UNT?

EJ to Baltimore.

They’ve been pretty pleased with the quality of the LB’s they have signed from North Texas.

What deference does it make if they are not drafted but are signed as a Free Agent

Drafted=more money+making the team. (?). Just a guess

No real difference from a late draft pick except they get to pick the team they go to.  That can be a big advantage.

I may be wrong, but I think the difference is recruiting. For the player it makes no difference. They just want an opportunity to make it. For the school, it matters because when you are recruiting, kids know about the players who were drafted and you can use that. They don't know anything about who signed as free agents unless that free agent makes a household name for himself. Sure you can tell them someone signed as a FA, but it doesn't have the same impact as selling a prospect on being drafted. Just my opinion.

Not necessarily on either one.

If you wanna get drafted, you're better off playing D2 ball than for UNT since D2 schools even have draft picks.

Teams sometimes don’t want to admit to making a mistake on a draft pick. If a late drafted player is equal in ability to an undrafted player, they may hold on to the drafted guy longer (prior to being cut) for political reasons. Many times, the undrafted guy is just better.

Not having guys drafted really isn’t a surprise to me with the amount of talent that is available at the P5 level. Let alone the other non-power conferences. How many CUSA players got drafted this year? 

It’s going to be an uphill battle. My hot take is that Mason Fine will be a late round pick but who knows.
