Despite several standout performances at Texas State’s Pro Day, no Bobcats heard their names called in the 2013 NFL Draft.
Texas State should have three players sign as free agents: former linebacker Joplo Bartu (1), former tight end Chase Harper and former defensive back Darryl Morris (2). Bartu led the Bobcats with 95 tackles in 2012, Harper caught 28 passes for 315 yards and three touchdowns, while Morris hauled in four interceptions.
Don’t be surprised if a few players from Texas State get drafted in 2015 and 2016. If sophomore offensive lineman Adrian Bellard, junior cornerback Craig Mager, junior linebacker Michael Orakpo and sophomore wide receiver Brandon Smith all put in the work, there’s a good chance NFL scouts would salivate over their potential.
