Alright gentleman (and possibly ladies).. it's time to start talking about the nfl draft! Combine is next week. I am soooooooo happy there's an article with my school's hometown product, TY Hilton from Florida International University.. Yes you're asking Florida what? Only florida teams i know are Florida, Florida State, and University of Miami. FIU is a state university that started football in 2002 (so relatively young) and is in the sun belt conference (yes one of the weaker ones, but not necessarily the weakest conference). However, FIU has played against some good teams over the year.. Louisville, UCF in 2011.. Alabama, Florida, Texas A&M, etc couple years back. They aren't a premier team but they are a very good, up and coming team. In 2010, FIU went 6-6 and won the sun belt (co won) and won their first bowl game! In 2011, they went 8-4 (best school record) and lost their bowl game. However, in the draft there will be 1 FIU product who goes by the name of TY Hilton.
I swear, if you haven't at least heard the name, you aren't a college football fan. He's made sportscenter top 10 plays (yes seriously) and he's been televised on espn a few times (most noticably against Louisville this past year). He's a small receiver (like 5'9 185lbs) but he can seriously run faster than most players in the college football. If i had to guess, he can run a 4.4 40 (probably quicker). And he has great hands and he can return punts, kickoffs really well. He's not a top 2 round pick, but i think he is a 3rd round pick.
Here's an article that names him a sleeper pick. http://www.nfl.com/combine/story/090...module=HP11_cp
Here are some youtube vids of TY hilton
You can go on youtube and find his punt/kickoff returns and stuff.. but those 2 are the ones i was referring to. This guy is a stud. He'll probably be underestimated because he came from the sun belt but seriously, whoever picks him up is gonna have a happy fucking day when they play TY for the first time.
Ok, yes i made this entire post about TY but I want people's opinions about TY! This thread is about everyone, so to add a different topic.. Who will the 3rd qb drafted be? Luck, RG3 will go in the top 5 picks but who will the 3rd qb be? Mckarron? Wheedon?
