    Vontaze Burfict could be an absolute steal if he can learn to play like a pro. That guy has some skills but is just very bull headed.

    This is just plain bad for the program. We need players to think ISU is still a good platform to make it to the next level. Good guys going undrafted is not good PR for recruits.

    Vontaze Burfict LOL.. I remember when he was considered a 1st round talent. I hope that kid can get it together off and on the field.

    He looked fat and slow at the end of the season and during the combine.

    Before the year started Chase Minnifield was supposed to be one of the first DBs taken up there with Dre Kirkpatrick and Janoris Jenkins.

    I also saw the Cowboys signed Levy Adcock from Oklahoma State, he was only one of the best lineman in the Big 12. Seems like there's a lot more talent than past years that went undrafted, yet the draft itself seemed pretty weak.

    What about linemen going in the 2nd round? Honestly, ISU over the past ten years has been able to find good DBs, meanwhile the OL has been terrible a lot of the time. I wouldn't worry too much about it. ISU has found good players without the draft. How many players were drafted the year before LJ committed?

    Many often say not getting drafted in the last round and signing a FA deal could be better, as you are able to go to a team that fits your ability better.

    You are way oversimplifying. If LJ becomes a star, you there's some merit in your comment. However, programs recruit a ton on how many guys get drafted from their school. Then, they use how many kids end up in camps and on teams. If you think it wouldn't help ISU to get more kids drafted, you're crazy.

    The kid from NIU Harnish? is a fine example. He had a deal to go to San Diego prior to Indianapolis picking him last. Do you think he'd get a better look from SD who has an all-pro who doesn't need near as many snaps and could show Harnish the ropes or in Indy where the Luck will get every second of every meeting and practice to try to pick things up?

    Have to disagree a little. ferentz has a great reputation on producing OL but the fact is most of his OL get drafted and flame out. Yet iowa still gets their OL drafted every year. Also, drafted guys are going to make more $$$.

    Now, these UFAs for ISU can make rosters and play and help ISU build a reputation but getting kids drafted helps a program

    it sucks he went undrafted but if he is good enough to play in the NFL he'll make a roster and CPR can use it for recruiting.

    Iowa went 7-6, lost to ISU and once again had 6 drafted and 4 UFAs. I hope they keep bringing in these types of players if number of draft picks is so important for recruiting.
