Six Linebackers in the NFL, niceBy my count there are 17 former Gophers in NFL camps. That has to be the highest number ever. It's so much fun watching these guys perform at the next level. It can't be bad for recruiting either.

Did I miss anyone?
It is rare for GB to release a draft pick so quickly. I follow a lot of Packers media people and the common themes that come up from coaches/staff were injuries and a lack of consistency. I hope he lands somewhere and that the speed of the game at the NFL level slows down for him.From what I can tell, Kamal Martin hasn't landed on a different team yet. Really weird.
