    FCS players headed to the NFL Combine

    Bailey was, by almost all accounts, a horrible teammate that refused to change positions and rather than change positions and accept that Dunne was better stopped practicing and playing. Him being out with an injury? A lie. He threw a bitch fit over getting benched and quit without leaving the team.

    His attitude was dog **** once that decision was made. He, until graduation day (I'm assuming still) wore his Illinois Fighting Illini letterman jacket around campus, to and from the facility, on road trips, etc...

    I used to care about UNI football. May well again some day....

    Definitely.

    Only 13 were invited to the NFL combine (out of 330 players). This is horribly disproportionate to the 15% of NFL rosters made up of FCS players.

    How was Schult not a combine invite?
    Schult is not considered to be a great athlete. He may get drafted with a strong pro day though. I could see him sneak into the 6th or 7th round with a big time pro day.

    That may keep him from getting signed. I just know based on athletic ability he was considered a potential free agent during the fall but I'm sure he will get dinged for that attitude and end up in a secondary league if that is all true.

    I expect that 15% to drop over the next 5-8 years. With so many more teams moving up and making 85 less FCS scholarships more and more you should see the G5 level have a big increase in talent.

    With that said, there are some very good FCS players left out due to the numbers game. The NFL will only invite 330 players to the combine. They want to invite more but can't due to logistics reasons. I wish we could see 400 at the combine. I would expect no more than 5-7 players drafted who don't get an invite if that was the case.

    I want to see Dylan Cole get a contract somewhere. He kept a lot of our conference opponents from hanging a hundred on us over the last two years.

    Mapp's bigger issue is that he does not have much speed. You could argue that Pascal of ODU suffered from it too but he has much better physical tools and skills. If Mapp played like a 4.5 or 4.4 guy he would have had so much more interest from NFL teams than he has. It's just coming down to his lack of speed on film in the eyes of NFL teams.

    Cole will be a definite free agent pickup and I could see him getting drafted in the 7th round even though right now I project him as a first wave priority free agent. He looked very good at the NFLPA Bowl.

    A kid I hope gets his shot is Brian Brown. Record breaking numbers, got better each year. I felt like every one of his touchdown he was open by 20 yards. Just not sure how he translates to the nfl being a shorter outside receiver (6'1). Reminds me of tajae sharp but maybe a little more straight line speed than quick. Not gonna get drafted, but hopefully he can get in a camp and succeed.
