    PJ Hall wasn't invited to the combine last year? That's craziness.

    I bet two of the names they will add to that list from the 2019 draft will be NDSU RB Bruce Anderson and JMU DB Jimmy Moreland.

    EWU has a few players that I think will get looks, but I am not confident they will get picked.

    JT Tiuli, Ketner Kupp, Nzuzi Webster, and Nsimba Webster

    Serious question, but do you think any team will take a chance on Tiuli after what he did before the championship game?

    With a draft pick? Probably not. As an undrafted free agent? Absolutely.

    Ring my school's bell- UCA's LB George Odum was neither and now plays for the Colts.

    Thats a tough way to make it to the league.

    Moreland turned a lot of heads at the East-West Shrine Game and got a Senior Bowl invite out of it.

    My guess, though, is his size may scare most teams off of him. Too often it's the measurables that drive the draft. I would think he's a late Day 3 (Rd 7) pick or UDFA.

    Our ISUr 2014 team had WR Cam Meredith and OL Mike Liedkte (LT his SR year) accomplish that same year .. also had TE O'shaugnnessy get drafted in 5th round. This was the Roberson/Coprich team ... it was stacked.

    Story on Cam Meredith, he was backup QB is first 3 years at ISU, before coaches could finally convinced him to convert to WR for his 4th & 5th years. No draft, no combine, went UDFA route with Bears and by 2016 (2nd year), injuries thrust him into starter role and had had 66 catches for 888 yards. Then he got injured, so Bears didn't want to match 2nd round tender offer, went to New Orleans and got injured again.

    Story on Mike Leidtke (6'4" 305 lbs) .. played RB and DE in HS, recruited hard by Spack when he was about 240 lbs and growing, but picked WMU/MAC over us .. then transferred after just 1 semester. Came to ISUR as DE/DT closer to 280 by then and growing. Immediately moved from DE to RG to RT to LT over his 4 years. Went to Northwestern pro day at 305 lbs and ran a legit 4.91 forty, and has bounced around NDFL game and practice rosters ever since.

    Both incredible athletes but late bloomers for FCS level.

    Re: Under the radar FCS draft picks

    Central Connecticut QB Jake Dolegala getting serious interest from a couple of teams and is definitely on the board. Possible he can go has in a late round, but almost certainly a priority Free Agent, which would be amazing publicity for a CCSU program that needs it desperately!

    Wasn't invited to combine, but has NFL size (6-7, 11-inch hands) and will have a pro day infront of most NFL teams.

    Round 6 (compensatory pick): QB Jacob Dolegala, Central Connecticut
    The Eagles will lose Nick Foles this offseason and while they already have Nate Sudfeld waiting in the wings, this front office likes to work as a well-oiled machine when it comes to churning out quarterbacks. Ideally, down the line, the Eagles will be able to flip Sudfeld for a high draft pick and, until that happens, this would give them an opportunity to develop a young quarterback who fits the team's mold for a quarterback, sizing up at 6-6, 235.
