Hey, Simplicity, how'd those 3 draft picks work out for you?Mad? Hey, remember this?...."Don't start nothin', won't be
“Why on earth would anyone want to play for such incompetent
coaches?”You mean the ones who’ve single handily
developed 3 star recruits into 4/5 stars @ an insane rate on avg over the
years?————bluto, check back in
w/us w/both schools’ #s on opening day rosters, once they’re
finalized....The vast disparity between programs will be stunningly palpable.Go Utes!
@ SIMPLICITY - Denver, COyou said:"There will be 4 draft
picks from the Utes".No, wrong again Mr.False Bravado, there was
only one Ute drafted and he came a full 111 picks after BYU's only pick.Both teams had players sign free agent contracts, as is always the case,
even with BYU.The 2016 draft produced 3 BYU players who made NFL
rosters.Looks like Ute fans need a new bragging point.
Wow,Almost 5 full rounds done and still no Utes getting the call! Maybe
all teams in the NFL have lost Utah's phone number?
Still waiting for a Utah player to be drafted.
What am I missing? I just checked Athlon's early rankings for the coming
season. They, indeed, mention the loss of players from last year, positions
that will be difficult to fill. These guys have worked hard and now they have a
chance at the NFL, as this article points out. As cjd mentions in his/her usual
slam at the Y, the U does put a goodly number of players in the NFL. Chase
could have been another for the big time but he opted to return. The
prognosticators mentioned that Carrington would be a big loss but failed to
mention Covey. I don't think there will be a let down at receiver.The Athlon predictions are not kind to the PAC. None in the top ten.
Washington is ranked the highest. The ranking that I feel is way off the mark
is Utah at #30. No way. This DN article presents a good review of who the U
loses. But there are plenty of guys to fill the holes and the position of qb
(if folks stay healthy, a big if for your starter) looks very good. I have the
U winning the South Division. They have a great home schedule. A full season
under their belt with the new offense. Running backs returning. Go Utes.And, sorry, but I must end with, Go Cougs!
What's even more amazing is, with all of that NFL talent, they are a
mediocre team in the worst p5 conference. Talent should equal success, but it
doesn't. Why on earth would anyone want to play for such incompetent
It really is amazing how te Utes consitantly put players in the NFL year after
year. Why on earth woulkd anyone want to go play for a mid-major? Go Utes!
There will be 4 draft picks from the Utes.
