Soon after the NFL Draft ended last night, several former Husker players were pleased to announce on twitter that they would get their shot at the big time by joining teams as undrafted free agents.
Brandon Kinnie will get his shot with Kansas City Chiefs:
Welp.... I will be a Kansas City Chief! Thank you God for the opportunity!— Brandon Kinnie (@BKinnie84) April 29, 2012
Terrence Moore got picked up by the Baltimore Ravens:
Baltimore here we come!— Terrence Moore (@TMO_90) April 29, 2012
And Jermarcus Hardrick got picked by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers:
I'm a Tampa Bay BuccaneerCamp starts next Week #Blessed #teamyoshi Thanks for all support— Yoshi Hardrick (@yoshi_50) April 29, 2012
They all get their shot, their opportunity, to make a team.
I'd like to think that all three of them are decent enough to make a team, but honestly, Kinnie has to cure his dropsie problem and Yoshi needs to get a quicker first step. I can see Hardrick making the cut at guard, but as a tackle he was beaten by South Carolina's Melvin Ingram in the Capital One Bowl, and Ingram is the kind of guy he'll face every down in the NFL.
We wish them the best of luck at making it at the next level!
