    Ho Hum another Buff backer gets drafted. Even when we have average backers, they get drafted. Colorado IS Linebacker U! Brian Cabral is the best backer coach in the country IMO.

    Congrats Brad!:thumbsup:

    not yet, but at this point youre better off going undrafted as you can pick your team and negotiate your own contract

    Good for Brad... I had a class with him last summer and he is a nice guy. Glad to see him get a shot at the NFL.

    From the time Cabral started here to now, SC might, just might have a few more LB's go into the NFL, but if they do it's not by a lot. Cabral makes 2 star runningbacks into Butkus finalists. He has put a lot into the NFL and I wouldn't be surprised if CU has more in the NFL in that time frame than SC. Plus, SC gets better athletes in general. I still say CU is better than SC in that department.

    no argument about Cabral, he's the man and a great asset to the university.

    George had a solid chance at being a second round choice after the 2007 season. He decided to stay and didn't have as good of a year and now wont get drafted at all. Happens all the time in the NFL and NBA. You saw it with Richard Roby too. It's nice to see them stay for the University to get their degree and see them another year playing at the school, but stories like these are reasons it is so common to see players declare when their stock is high.

    Great news! He had some good moments as OLB and would fit in a 3/4 really well. Hopefully he is given a chance to show his potential and get some PT in the NFL.
