    Re: Potential FCS Draft Picks for 2018 NFL Draft

    South Carolina TE Hayden Hurst (and 25th overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft) in his career: 100 catches, 1281 yards, 3 TDs
    South Dakota St TE Dallas Goedert (undrafted in the 1st round) in 2016 alone: 92 catches, 1293 yards, 11 TDs

    I guess Baltimore really likes blocking or something.

    there is more than just stats involved in drafting..maybe DG didn't do so well in one on one interviews, etc...

    Remember when those were huge for Carson to be perfect at when being considered for the 1st round

    Maybe he did, maybe he didn't. Seems more likely to me that the excuse is the old tired level of competition garbage that holds back most top FCS prospects.

    It has nothing to do with that. Wentz and others have gone in round one. Goedert was considered a very late 1st or early to mid 2nd round guy all along. Someone will take him in round 2. He got hurt in Mobile and never ran the 40. Hurst had a lot of catches and yards just like Goedert did so it is not like Hurst is just a blocker. He is considered good at both. Goedert is a very good second round talent.

    Except Goedert easily doubled Hurst up in catches and yards over the last 3 years. Like I pointed out a few posts ago Goedert bested Hurst's career numbers in just one season in 2016. I just found that discrepancy a bit ironic given how closely graded they apparently were. It obviously hurt Goedert that he wasn't able to work out at the combine or run the 40 at all. Who knows how close the Ravens had them graded and for all I know Hurst may turn out to be the better pro but I just don't see much reasoning for him being picked over Goedert other than he's proven to be a better blocker and played against better competition in college.

    And that's plenty reason enough btw if that's what a team values most in their TEs but the contrast in their receiving numbers is certainly eye opening.

    Well, Goedert definitely drafted into the best situation of the top 3 TEs. It'll be the Dakota connection in Philly!

    ****, the Eagles could use another linebacker, who knows. Great move by the Eagles, I think this Goedert guy is the real deal.

    And also, ICYMI, Darius Leonard was the first FCS player drafted, to the Colts.
