It's not a huge surprise to me that no Cyclones were drafted.
I'd have bet that Franklin would get taken though. He's a stud.
And I thought Sims had a real chance too, but it was about 50-50. He's just too short. Although, so was Bob Sanders.
Not surprised to see Lamaak not get taken. I think he might end up making a team somehow, but he's probably just not good enough to get drafted.
I was not surprised at all. I thought Sims played himself out the draft last year. He was not as effective as he was his first year. Franklin doesn't surprise me at all either. He is a pretty good catching TE but I saw him get knocked off routes and he is an OK blocker. Neither of toss go well in the NFL. I thought someone like the Eagles or the Cowboys would grab him as their TEs are more receivers than anything.
Just because Franklin was our best receiver, doesn't make him a great TE.
While it was funny to listen to hawkeye fans think a national championship was possible last year, it's just as funny to listen to ISU fans think a basketball national championship or at least a Final Four trip is possible this year.
link? otherwise wake up from your wet dream, no ISU fan I know has said anything close to that.
I've heard from some people that sims was going to get drafted but failed his drug test at the combine and intrested teams backed off. one team (not sure which one) brought him in for interviews and came away very unimpressed.... sucks. he had the chance and blew it.
