Sound Off: Football seniors
What happened to all of those senior football players on KU’s team last season? I heard a little about Bradley McDougald and Tanner Hawkinson but didn’t hear a thing about the others.
Nothing yet. McDougald and Hawkinson were invited to participate in the NFL combine in Indianapolis, which featured more than 300 draft hopefuls. The rest of the group have been working out on their own or with trainers in preparation for the team’s annual Pro Timing Day, March 15 in Lawrence, and the NFL Draft, April 25-27 in New York. Most analysts expect McDougald and Hawkinson to have a shot at getting drafted, but those players who don’t get selected are still eligible to join teams through free agency.
