    This draft clearly defines the talent gap that has grown between CU and our conference and even the non P5 team in state. When your competition is NFL talent, you need to be as well. Every part of a Successful program is recruiting. It is the base of the pillar.

    Will this be the first NFL draft that we don't have a single player drafted?

    We should hopefully get 4 next draft: Nembot, Crawley, Spruce, Tupou...but the point is valid.

    No, it'll be something like the fourth time it's happened.


    Still a chance Henderson could go late, though.

    O'Neil impressed nfl scouts this offsets on at one of those "allstar" games. May be worth a late round consideration too.

    Talent gap shows when CSU has had more guys drafted in last couple years. And early as well. They also have had I drafted guys hold on with teams. We have good coaches and why we were competitive in games we didn't have the same talent. Give MacIntyre UCLA and they truly challenge for PAC 12 last year IMO. UCLA should have beat CU by 20.

    Having upperclassmen playing is pretty big

    Good coaching is not enough in this conference.

    I agree.

    While there are always advantages that can be gained in any aspect of the organization, it's not like the other 11 teams in our conference have sub-standard coaching staffs. In fact, it may be the best collection of coaches in the nation.

    It's kind of unbelievable that the Rams have had more draftable players than us in the last few years. People like to bitch that the media is unfairly biased against CU... but they've flat out sucked for a while. I hope next year we have some second day talent.

    Agree with you and Duff. This year is going to show and be crap or get off the pot since it will be a ton of Junior and Senior starters.

    For those of us who follow recruiting closely, we knew this was coming. The final 2 Hawkins classes were bad and the first Embree class (transition) was a guy taking over from a staff that had barely recruited all year. Pretty much ground zero starting in December of 2010 for the 2011 class. Then, too many of those 2011 guys had to play early so there aren't even many seniors on the 2015 team.

    This season is a pretty normal roster, finally, even if it's a small senior class.

    Looks like Henderson is the only Buff to sign a UDFA deal (NY Jets)

    Arizona and Tennessee also had NO players drafted this year. Notre Dame had two, from a series of top 25 recruting classes. Last year it was Texas that none drafted after ten years of Top 25, often Top 10, recruiting classes.

    So what is to be gleaned from all that?

    Despite being labeled captain obvious, seeing mountain west teams developing NFL talent was salt on the wound for me. The PAC is deep in round one and two talent. CU needs to be as well. Man I despise Hawk.
