Offense: Froh, Tyrell Smith, Marken Michel (lots of speed and versatile can play the slot, take end arounds, line up in backfield) Rodney Mills? (might not have the size or speed to play TE in NFL)

Defense: Randall Jette, Jovan Santos-Knox, Trey Dudley-Giles?(versatile can play CB, S, KR), Kassan Messiah (reportedly, on twitter, had a great Pro Day)
I think Messiah will end up in the league as well as Tyrell Smith and possibly JSK. Michel and Jette end up in Canada.

I am surprised Tyrell smith isn't getting looks. Guess foregoing a year of eligibility was not a good move.

I found it interesting that Messiah was invited to rookie camp for the Giants as a tight end. Shows what an athlete he is.

Yeah its definitely a surprise considering he had a pre-draft interview with the Jets and attended the Giants local Pro Day. I believe rookie minicamp starts the second week of May so he still could get an invite between now and next week. Also surprised Santos-Knox didn't get a look but then again neither did Stanley Andre or Perry McIntyre who were similar players to JSK

He was recruited as a TE, we switched him to LB.

Vlad got released by the Ravens. We're down to two UMass players in the NFL.

^ Ducasse starting tonight for the Ravens. Good to hear "UMass" (no, not zoomass) as the players introduced themselves.
