I agree.  I'm kind of shocked he went so high.  I guess I'll never be an NFL scout.  Rob's a great athlete, but I thought Jason Harmon was the better TE of the two and he went undrafted and is struggling to find a spot on an NFL roster.

Anyway, I'd like to see JVC and Jean get picked tomorrow.  GO OWLS!

"I'm really thrilled for Rob. As I have said in the past, Rob may be the most talented tight end that I have coached. He made the unselfish decision to sit out his senior year in order for FAU to have a better tight end situation in 2010. I hope that his unselfishness paid off with more experience, more time to develop, and thus a better opportunity in this year's draft."

- Schnellenberger via Twitter on Housler's being drafted

You can't teach 4.5 speed and you can't teach 6-5…he was a guy that, at the sake of trending offenses, didn't get any respect heading into college.

Now that he has played for a pro-style offense and has the athletic tools needed, he enters a different market that recognizes other attributes and rewards them accordingly - with a much better opportunity.

He's going to need to develop in some areas though.

Harmon:

Was simply too small for the league, IMO. Fit the tweener spot perfectly in college, but you can't do that in the league.

You're right in your assessment Rick, Housler is 250lbs, strong and is as fast as many WRs in the NFL.

Harmon was clutch, but didn't fit size-wise.

Of note…Housler came to FAU with ZERO offers elsewhere, ZERO stars, he was a nobody. Doesn't seem like we're being left behind in the NFL draft party anymore!
