Just plain Mystified...

Ok,

Im just stumped at FAU not having a player drafted or in the NFL.  ???

FIU has had several, and I dont think they have been getting superior atheletes then FAU. Given the fact of thier DISMAL performance in Football compared to ours I have to wonder……

WTH are FAU players not getting drafted/signed into the NFL?

I was surprised that Jervonte had made it this long as I considerd him to be a long shot, but Frantz just plain out left me flabergasted.

What is it about our players that have the scouts luke warm or just plain cold?
Is it physical conditioning?
Is it skill level? ( I just cant buy that because, Frantz had GREAT skills at tacklling and getting to players)
Is it pure Physical stats?

What are these NFL teams looking for that Owl players dont seem to have?


I have come here to chew bubble gum and kick @$$ and I'm out of bubble gum.

This is going to be painful truth…but up until this point in time the answer is simply stated:

"Talent".

Speed as well.  Frantz's limited ability in pass coverage probably made the majority of teams overlook him.

At this point in our history, I think the NFL sucess our players have is fairly low.  Not to say its not important but its just really not.  I can name a ton of players that went to Washington, Notre Dame, Syracuse, etc and it frankly doesnt mean anything.

Teambeer is the most knowledgeable FAU sports fan I know, way smarter than me.
