It took quite some time before a team made a splash and took a small school player. With the 62nd pick the New England Patriots made the first selection.
The Patriots selected the FCS passing leader and Walter Payton Award winner Jimmy Garoppolo from Eastern Illinois. This is a great pick and ultimately gives the Patriots leeway to trade Ryan Mallett to the Houston Texans.
In the third round the Miami Dolphins moved up to draft a much needed offensive tackle. Billy Turner is a very solid player and I could not be happier for him. The NDSU product is a beast and should start immediately for the Phins.
The next small schooler selected turned some heads, but it shouldn’t. Listen to me folks, John Brown of Pittsburg State is a beast. The guy ran a 4.3 at the combine and is a true playmaker. The guy scores touchdowns all the time, he is a true playmaker.
The Cleveland Browns finally added a running back to team up with Ben Tate. Terrance West the back from Towson is a beast, since he entered the FCS he has dominated. He was a Jerry Rice Award winner as a freshman, and has been a Walter Payton finalist multiple years in a row. The kid is special.
The last small schooler selected was Jerrick McKinnon. The Georgia Southern QB, RB, CB, WR, KR, PR/weapon was taken by the Vikings. I love this pick because the kid is tough. He was a Combine All workout team guy and should be a great back up to Adrian Peterson.
