    Default NSIC Players in the NFL or other leagues?

    How many players from your school are currently in the NFL or recently were? Are they currently playing elsewhere?

    Has the NSIC ever had a player drafted in the current 7 round format?

    MSU I know has 3...

    Adam Thielen - who most people have heard of now.

    Chris Reed (OL) of Jacksonville who looked very good against the Vikings d line and got a ton of 1st team reps. Would be shocked if he doesn’t make 53 man roster this time around.

    Even Perrizo (DE) of Tampa Bay is currently fighting for a spot but I don’t know the prospects of him making the team are? Hopefully he gets on a practice squad at least!

    And I’m not trying to get ahead of my self but I think Shane Zylstra has a shot of getting drafted if he continues to put up numbers like last season for the next 2 seasons! He has ideal size for a WR at 6’5 220. Even Casey Bednarski has a shot for a kicker! Greg Zuerlein of the Rams was a D2 kicker himself and was drafted 6th round from Missouri Western!

    I literally just saw the new AAF (Alliance of American Football) Facebook page do an interview with Bemidji State's Jacob Krause. Looks like he signed with their Phoenix ball club for the inaugural season

    I could be forgetting more, but Zach Moore (CSP) was a 6th round pick in 2014.

    Max Mickey signed with the San Antonio AAF team. He was invited to the Vikings mini-camp earlier this spring.

    On the one list for the AAF I saw atleast two NSIC kids. Blanking on the names but the Moorhead kid (Gibson?) and an Augie kid (LB? Lee?) I'm too lazy to look it up again, but the fans of those schools on here should know. Unless they have as bad of coverage locally as my squad. (Its gotten so bad)

    There's another MSU kid on the Vikes, I think. Just can't recall his name. FB, maybe?

    USF's Dennis Gardeck is still in camp with the Arizona Cardinals after going undrafted. Remains to be seen if he'll make the cut or make a practice squad.

    That's CJ Ham of Augustana, I think you're thinking of.

    Brother Brandon who will at a minimum make the Vikings practice squad but more than likely will make the 53 man roster was an Augustana guy until he transferred to D3 Concordia.

    Brandon needs to get healthy to make the team imo. He missed a lot of camp.

    They are very impressed with him not only as a receiver but also a special teams guy. He is back practicing and I see no way they cut him or potentially risk exposing him by putting him on the PS. Coley has been out as much or more and Wright/Treadwell haven't exactly lit it up in preseason games. Hopefully he plays in the 3rd preseason game.
