UCLA shut out in NFL draft

UCLA fans quite often saw blue and yellow jerseys throughout the NFL Draft the past three days, but for all the wrong reasons.

While a constant presence in other players’ highlight videos, the Bruins were shut out of the draft, all five primary candidates – Tony Dye, Nelson Rosario, Derrick Coleman, Cory Harkey and Mike Harris – going undrafted.

Coleman, however, tweeted that he’s joining the Minnesota Vikings, while Dye reportedly signed a free agent deal with Cincinnati and Harkey with the St. Louis Rams.

    Nelson Rosario got the result of having been so lazy all these years.

    I feel sorry for him.

    But the NFL doesn’t tolerate laziness. All contracts are non-guaranteed. Even if you are a star owed $30 Million, you can be dumped at any time and lose the income.

    Even Jim Mora said – of the current UCLA team – that only 2 players out of the 100 so far have shown the ability to take it to the next level – the NFL.

    i think this also reflects on Neuheisel. he didn’t help give those guys what it takes to get to the next level.

    Best case for them is to turn into the next Khalil Bells.
