How many Bulls will be drafted?


Recommended Posts

I haven't heard anybody talk about this at all. If I were ranking the draft eligible seniors in order,(I will list them all for now) my list would go Jamie Byrd, Thor Jozwiak, Eric Lee, Brynjar Gudmundsson, Sean Price, Mattias Ciabatti, James Hamilton, Mak Djulbegovic, Tashon Whitehurst, and then of course, Steven Bench. I feel like anybody from Mattias Ciabatti and up is realistically draftable, but I think USF got lucky last year getting 3 guys drafted, and even though we have a better team, I don't think any one player is a lock to be drafted. I will say 3 of those 6 will be drafted. Any other predictions?

Even looking back on it, even though Byrd was easily the best of the bunch on USF's team, I don't know where he realistically fits on an NFL defense. And NFL teams are quick to point at injury concerns if you are not an elite talent, so that will be a knock on Thor Jozwiak. So honestly, I think my top 6 could easily be interchangeable

Byrd has already had two or three workouts with the Bucs.

Is he going to play safety? He isn't a top notch cover guy, hes just a great athlete who fit in our scheme in my opinion. I will say, he would be awesome on special teams. 6th-7th round sounds about right for him

Looking at safety. But I agree, just a great athlete that would be good on special teams. Maybe they see something coachable? I really don't know.

Byrd, Lee, Price have a shot IMO. Maybe an O-line guy or two as UDFA.

That's pretty much my take.

However, I happened to meet Whitehurst as he was walking by my house, about a week ago, and he said he ran a 4.4 forty at his pro-day. IF that is true, then I could see him being a lat draft pick. I asked him whether he would prefer to be drafted in the 7th round or sign with a team as an undrafted free agent. Not surprisingly, (to me at least), he'd rather sign as an UDFA because he would have more options in choosing a team where he might have a better chance to stick.
