I would be surprised if that didn’t happen today. The UDFA’s sign for at least 4 days post draft.

I checked at 9:48 p.m. so could be more.

pvk--I did a quick scan and saw nine MAC players drafted last season.

Two each from NIU, Toledo, and Central Michigan
One each from Akron, Bowling Green, and Eastern Michigan

RE: Drafting Huskies
I just counted on the udfa tracker at 1 a.m. 4/27, and there are 10 from the MAC, including Steckler. Forget how many MAC ufda's there were last year.

This year ... WMU (3), Buffalo (2) and one each from NIU, CMU, Toledo, Miami (Oh) and EMU.

Thanks pvk--those are hard to find---some sites will have teams with 15 and other teams not reporting any---good work.

RE: Drafting Huskies
there are no rookie mini camp try outs this year so a lot less players are going to get a chance. Still haven't anything on our others Huskies yet and a lot of teams have already officially announced their UDFA classes

RE: Drafting Huskies
Not that there are any gospels to the draft coverage, but I was following CBS all weekend--they were actually updating quicker than ESPN and the area I was watching listed all schools---and the ONLY player ranked from NIU was Steckler---and he was #742 on the board. Obviously, one man's projection, one man's opinion but we didn't have much talent on the board. If every time, between picks and UDFA adds 20-25 guys he fell right in that range. Certainly a long shot....

Hopefully Mykelti plays in the CFL or XFL if it gets a rebuttal. I liked the way he played. One of my favorites last year.

Plenty of players will get a chance (probably the same amount). The league will figure out a way to get in some camps or teams will just sign guys based on what they know and/or the combine (like they just did during and after the draft). That is assuming the season starts on time. Teams will have to be flexible and do things different this year. Coaches are always looking to upgrade the worst player on the roster. Teams that sit back and use social distancing and whatnot as an excuse not to sign a guy will lose out more times than not.

RE: Drafting Huskies
NFL teams might also be waiting a bit to not spend too much until this Covid-19 crisis is more manageable. They can sign more ufda's in a heartbeat.
