At DLF, our slogan is: “There is no off-season.” The reason for that, other than the fact we are all degenerates who can’t get enough, is because the NFL really is a year-round endeavor.
This past week saw the beginning of draft season. College players begin their transition to paid athletes as the NFL begins to sort through who is worthy enough to land a life-changing payday. The first step in that process is the East-West Shrine game.
Now, let’s be clear. While the Shrine Game does contain potential draft picks, many of the game’s participants will be selected outside the top 100, if they even get picked at all. For the players, the most important parts of this week are two-fold: meetings with team representatives, and the practices. For the draftnik, unless you have media credentials, these are the parts that you’ll never see. Luckily, there are plenty of media outlets out there reporting on the practice sessions during the week.
This all culminates in a game on Saturday, Today, we’ll take a look at the offensive skill position players who either helped- or in some cases, hurt – their draft stock.
Daylon Mack, DT Texas A&M
The former five-star recruit looked anything but during his first three seasons for the Aggies. This past season was a different story though, and Mack carried that into the Shrine Game, cementing himself as the most dominant player there He wrecked every offensive lineman he came in contact with. His strong play earned him a call up to the following week’s prestigious Senior Bowl.
