    Default Sid Hartman: Draft helps Gophers

    per Sid:

    Draft helps Gophers

    Gophers football coach P.J. Fleck said that even though the team graduated few seniors, having linebacker Blake Cashman drafted in the fifth round by the Jets and players such as offensive lineman Donnell Greene (Jaguars) and kicker Emmit Carpenter (Bears) picked up as rookie free agents is just the start of the Gophers getting more notice from the NFL.

    “First of all, congratulations to [Cashman] being drafted,” Fleck said. “That is tremendous for our program, tremendous for him. It’s a wonderful opportunity for him as well as other players for us. He has earned it. He’s a really talented football player and he has a great story. A former walk-on from Eden Prairie, earned a scholarship, now he’s a fifth-round pick. Really happy for him and his family.”

    Right now there are officially 12 former Gophers in the NFL: Cashman, CB Briean Boddy-Calhoun, LB De’Vondre Campbell, LB Jonathan Celestin, T Ra’Shede Hageman, SS Eric Murray, CB Jalen Myrick, P/PK Ryan Santoso, CB Marcus Sherels, TE Maxx Williams, LB Damien Wilson and T Nate Wozniak.

    Fleck said he believes some of his current players will make good NFL prospects.

    “We didn’t have a lot of seniors, but as we keep going forward, I think more and more Gophers fans are going to be tuning into that draft over the next few years,” he said.

    In addition, the Bolts made a change on the practice squad, adding beef to the offensive line by signing 6-6, 319-pound tackle Jamar McGloster to the practice squad. To make room, the team waived DT Steven Richardson.

    Go Gophers!!
    There are a couple mistakes though. Sid did not include Greene in the "In NFL" part. Also he listed Jalen Myrick who is not currently on a NFL roster.

    12 Gophers in NFL just not the 12 listed. Add Greene and subtract Myrick.
    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
