    Re: Think Jesse Smith will get drafted?

    Our defense looked bad. Nebraska has a terrible offense and they looked good today. We had no pass rush the entire game and our secondary was out of position alot, but the turnovers were amazing.

    Jesse Smith might be a 6-7 rounder with the way he has improved this season.

    No, but he will get a FA shot.

    great effort player but the NFL is all about combine #'s........so to put it lightly, I think not.

    No. Plenty of good college players that never make it in the pros. Heart can only take you so far, to stay in the NFL you need more than heart.

    This. The draft is too much about combine numbers. Some team might end up being ecstatic to have him on special teams.




    Paul Rhoads' players never quit.
    (They just disappear offseason)

    Re: Think Jesse Smith will get drafted?

    Not sure he will get drafted. Honestly, he is still kind of small for an NFL linebacker, but he could get signed as a FA I think. He is the heart and soul of the defense though! Hopefully will be Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week. Great game!

    Re: Think Jesse Smith will get drafted?

    No, but he has the biggest heart on this defense. His face was intense the whole game. GREAT LEADER for us.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    Re: Think Jesse Smith will get drafted?

    Rhoads has already said that Jesse will hang up his cleats and not play another down of football after this season. He is headed for a career as a teacher and coach. He can file today away as a lesson to be applied in his future coaching career.

    Good job Jesse and something's wrong if you don't end up with next week's Big 12 player of the week award.

    Re: Think Jesse Smith will get drafted?

    I love his play, his desire and passion he plays with, but he's not getting drafted. He will though always be in Cyclone lore. He played his butt off and everyone else feed off his play. Thank you Jesse, you made my parents 40th and are an example of someone that puts his heart and sweat into everything you are made of. Your parents should be proud! Thanks again Jesse and ISU!!!
