Baz.....Good Luck. Remember, this deal is a crap shoot in many ways. Even our guy Sammy Knight didn't get drafted, yet came in and not only made a roster, but started right away.

Regardless of how you end up on a roster, its all good. It's what you do when you get there. Play smart and aggressive and you'll make it. I've given that same advice now to several former players playing in the NFL.

One bit of advice - If you get a chance to catch a position coach from a team you are considering teach at a clinic, be sure to go. They will give you a heads up advantage on the techniques they use and many important aspects of their scheme. You can walk in as a well informed Rookie. Also...VERY IMPORTANT...Be sure to introduce yourself to them so they remember you later on at camp. They will be impressed that you were that ahead of the game. Most the clinics are on weekends too, so you'll have several chances to catch them. Good Luck, let me know if you need any help with the stuff ahead.

Aren't you a senior already? Did you still have to go through some special process to be included in the draft?

Good luck to you!

You have to fill out a few forms pretty much saying you want to be drafted. Nothing big, it just makes sure you want to be in the NFL......

I appreciate the advice MIKE. I've already met a few scouts from the teams looking down here, been introducing myself and whatnot. I'll have to make the extra effort to meet a few special teams and DB coaches over the next few weeks......
