I can see him in the CFL and having a long career. If he switches position to wide receiver than he could be on the practice squad a year to learn the position.

He will drafted as an athlete. He has the ability to be a top flight cornerback. He will be too intriquing to pass on in the later rounds.

Interesting that they’re claiming 4.3 speed. His numbers here were 4.6 IIRC. No way he gets drafted but he’ll be at a camp somewhere

I don't know what his official time will be, but he had way above average speed. That TD run against Syracuse. He was at a totally different playing speed than any other player on the field. I'm guessing he will run in the 4.4s officially. He has a chance at getting drafted late. Would be a real threat in pro wildcat package.

He can play in the league if he can find a position. He is that good an athlete but let's whoa down on the "elite" arm nonsense. Last I checked, NFL QB's even the non-elite one's don't miss wide open receivers with regularity.

When do combine offers usually go out? Aside from Pindell, another other potential Huskies with a chance at the next level?

I doubt it. Maybe Crozier. I've read positive things about Mayala, but I just don't see the speed/explosiveness.

If Kyle Buss puts up good numbers at UCONN's pro day I would think he could earn a camp invite, same goes for Mclean and Mayala. Doubtful any will get drafted but all three could earn a camp invite. Nick Williams turned his camp invite into a career.

No one will get drafted but I can see a few invited for tryouts and some signed to teams as free agents.

Hergy can play in Canada as well and I would expect him to get drafted by the CFL

I believe Hergy is expected to be a top 5 CFL pick.

If Aaron McLean can run a fast 40 or put up some good pro day numbers, he could slip into the late rounds.

Can't teach 6-5, 230 for a WR.

Hey, Edelman was a qb in college and found a spot. An argument can be made that Pindell would have been UConn’s best RB, WR and potentially DB last year if he wasn’t the qb. The NFL has a way of finding talent. I could see him on a practice squad learning a new position and then earning a roster spot in a year or two.

Has Pindell posted a 40 time yet?

Obviously he isn’t getting drafted but if he shows we’ll in individual drills he absolutely will get a camp invite as a db or wr.
