Today is draft day for EMU players
No one was expected to be drafted in rounds 1 - 3.

Best guesses for EMU players are round 7 or FA, both of which should develop later today.

I'll guess conservatively: Wylie - 7th round (taking the lead from Eagle Tough).

I'd also guess at least two FA, Gardner and POC. Any others are likely to be practice players for the off season stuff. (they need a lot of warm bodies).

BTW, I think on an analogy to minor league baseball, these NFL FAs to stock camps, etc. are by and large exploitative. Most FAs don't have much of a chance. Just like most MiLB players don't have much hope of making a MLB roster. They play because it takes say 25 players to stock a MiLB team so if 5 - 10 have MLB hopes, the rest are... playing for pennies + meal money and a dream.

So we have 10M+ players in MLB and 10K players in MiLB. #NotFair MiLB players deserve say 2x what they get.

The Lions take O'Connor in the 7th round!!

As an EMU and Lions fan, this has been one hell of an offseason. TJ Lang and POC on the same roster!

When was the last time EMU had played drafted in back-to-back years? Has that ever happened before?

A sign of the program moving in the right directions.

Off the top of my head, 98 and 99. Charlie Batch and LJ Shelton.

Good and the signings are legit.

We all know that POC, Wylie and Gardner were the three seniors who are most 'NFL-ready'.
