Re: Carson Wentz Transferred According to CBS Sports
Not technically on topic, but hey, it's the offseason.
If Wentz does go #2 in the draft, I wonder what kind of impact that might have on recruiting in general across the FCS. I know it'll help NDSU specifically, but I'd have to imagine that other schools might benefit from it as well. We've had FCS players get drafted in the first round before, but it's been a while (I think maybe Rodgers-Cromartie and Flacco in '08 were the last ones?), and never has an FCS player gone #2 in the draft.
If a kid is maybe on the fence between a MVFC team or a MAC team and might be thinking that a MAC team would give them a better chance to make it to the NFL...disregarding the fact that that's not a great way to look at your future...having an FCS player go right at the top of the NFL draft would show them that if you're good enough, it doesn't matter what level you play at, scouts will notice you and you'll get your chance. Or are kids pretty much past those type of questions anyway, having seen a lot of great players come out of the FCS anyway?
