But then couldn't you say that Louisville and USC have better OL than Clemson because each had 1st Round picks and Clemson had none at that position? Or Texas Tech had a better LB than Alabama and Georgia because a TT LB got drafted and no LB from Alabama or Georgia did. There are just so many variables, like who is eligible to get drafted, what teams' needs are, etc. You can't really draw conclusions because one school had a player get drafted in the 1st Round and another didn't - it's not really a reflection on the programs unless there is consistency (like Alabama WRs, Oklahoma QBs, ND OL, Ohio State DBs, etc.).

 

Oh, of course.

I’m just lamenting.

It is an individual thing, not an entire group thing. I wouldn’t say that an entire O line was better or worse than some other line just because one guy was taken from one school and none from another. That’s waaaay to much generalization.

 

But, it is still hard for me to stomach that TCU had two first rounders and ND had none. TCU was miserable and ND was pretty darned good.

I’m not drawing any conclusions at all. Just lamenting.

It's just not a fair playing field. Dumb kids get into dumb schools with NFL budgets.

We just didn’t have any huge stars last year, but our depth is really solid and that’s why we were way better than TCU. I’ll take quality depth over a few token standouts everyday.

Day 3 about to begin. Should see Pride come off the board pretty soon - he’s ranked as the #3 CB available by ESPN.

 

Kareem could go in Round 4 or Round 5 (hopefully not later). He’s ranked as the #8 DE available.

 

Gilman is actually the #2 Safety available, so he could come off sooner than expected. Elliot is ranked #11.

Jake Fromm falls to the Bills in the 5th Round at #167 overall.

 

Not sure how much Ian Book compares to Fromm, but the major knocks on Fromm were average size and average arm strength, while his strengths were football IQ and toughness. He was a good college QB, although fell off a bit this past year. He had a really poor Combine and didn’t have a chance to make up for it at his Pro Day.

Elliot goes undrafted. ND finishes with 6 players drafted for the second consecutive year. It's the 5th time ND has had at least 6 NFL draft picks under BK. (8 players:2014; 7 players: 2016; 6 players: 2013, 2019, 2020).
