    Maybe he will get taken but we are in round 6 and there are currently 23 WRs ranked ahead of Stan on the ESPN list of next best available WRs

    That class is still Bo's fault, IMO.

    Winfree from Colorado just got drafted too. He's been injured more than he's been healthy, got suspended multiple times, and wasn't even invited to the combine. Strange.

    Rick Spielman just had 3 picks in the 6th round and took guys from Wyoming and Elon.

    Yes the Vikings disappointed me, but as a Vikings fan I shouldn’t expect much different.

    Didn't Morgan have a good combine too? I don't follow it all that closely, but am surprised to see all these WR with lesser numbers being taken over Stanley.

    NFL.com ratings have Devine and Morgan way above many of these picks.

    It was only a year ago that the Lincoln Journal had Morgan as a late 1st or early 2nd round draft pick.

    People need to take off the rose tinted glasses. Stanley and Devine aren't special talents. They are good football players but in the NFL those are a dime a dozen. They are taking guys based on upside who have high ceilings or guys that they know about from their buddies in college football. Stan's scouting report was he's just a guy, theres nothing special about him. He's not tall, he doesn't have blazing speed he's not an explosive route runner, he's not all that hard to bring down. He's a good football player. That's not what the NFL is looking for deep in the draft.

    That's gotta suck to see a player whose had multiple ACL/MCL injuries and a drug arrest taken ahead of you. I think the streak may be over.

    Weird! Figured somebody would take a flier on Ozigbo by now, at least.

    Get Frost and current/former NFL players on the phone calling the NFL GM’s to help the Huskers out!!! They need to “recruit” some GM’s to have the courage to pick a Husker!!! Winking

    Good point. These last 2 drafts show how bad Nebraska really was.

    There's a lot of guys I don't agree with being picked over Stanley, but Hunter Renfrow isn't one of them. Hunter Renfrow wrecked Alabama's defense in that title game, I think he'll do just fine in the NFL.

    Good point and agreed. It’s 90% on Riley’s development though. Either way, I’m sure both Mike and BoBo are smiling from ear to ear to see the dumpster they left burn to the ground.

    It's sad those guys walked away making so much money for dumping on our program. Riley I don't think even cared, he was just there for the money.

    That one last ride, and one last smile... A day like today makes me even more upset. Feel bad for our players that stuck with us. Our two previous staffs really killed their development. Back to back years of 4-8s and bad drafts has been rock bottom for us.

    Spielman drafts two WRs in the 7th round over Stanley Morgan. Then he drafts a long-snapper from Air Force, who still has to complete his active duty service commitment. I'm confused.

    Shocked that Stan or Devine weren't picked. End of streak. 57 years. Bo, Riley and Eichorst. The trio that brought to an end.:mad:Sick

    Nebraska has had at least one player drafted since 1963. This year the streak was broken. I am pretty surprised. I really thought at least Morgan would get drafted. Ozigbo too. Bummer.

    I'd like to thank Bo Pelini and Mike Riley for this shitshow. Good riddance, It's too bad you both had golden parachutes for that soft landing after getting the boot. Neither of you deserved it.

    One draft pick in the last 2 years, and it was a transfer QB who had no business being drafted.

    That is pretty telling to me and makes me wonder if the drop down and out wasn't talent related

    Ironic that I was watching EndGame and it ended as the draft ended.
    Very appropriate end for both.Both disappointing.
