Steveo’s Salvos Post-draft 2017

Steve-o’s Salvos post-draft 2017

You never know when you’ll see future NFL talent when you follow the college game as close as we do. We just happened to be at the right place and snap some of the right pictures at the right time at the games we’ve attended the past few years. You’ll see some surprises along with some of the stars you may have expected to see get drafted by the pros last Thursday through Saturday. Also, check out our pre-draft report from last week prior to the NFL. You’ll see how we did regarding some of the predictions we made.

Ohio State C Pat Elfein (65) pulls left to lead Ezekial Elliot around left end in OSU’s victory over Michigan in 2015. Elfein was taken at # 70 by the Minnesota Vikings.

RB Marlon Mack of South Florida didn’t fare well against Navy when we saw the Midshipman hold him to only 29 yards. He ran all over them in 2016 however, He was selected #143 overall by the Colts.

WR Chris Godwin keeps his feet inbounds for the completion in Penn State’s 2106 Blue-White game. He was the only Nittany Lion selected in this years’s draft at #84 by the Buccaneers.

We watched Temple OL Dion Dawkins (66) and the Owls play five times in 2016. He was selected at #64 by the Bills.

Temple CB Nate Hairston (15) showed tight coverage against Wake Forest in the 2016 Military Bowl. Because of it, the Colts selected him at #158.

We saw ILB Anthony Walker (18) and Northwestern in bowl games versus Tennessee and Pitt the last two seasons. Three picks after Hairston, the Colts selected him at #161.

Michigan WR Jehu Chesson got hammered against Ohio State in 2015, but the Chiefsselected the school’s leading receiver at # 139.

 

About Steveo

This website is dedicated to my unique and ongoing adventure to continue to see every major Division 1A (I despise the moniker “FBS”) football team play in person at least once. I’ve seen all 124 teams in existence as of 2013 play and plan to attend games with the five newest editions in the next few years. This also records my ongoing adventures attending as many college football games as possible every season. I “officially” started this crazy goal in 1979. The upcoming 2014 season will be the 35th straight year of sharing this fun endeavor with others in person and through weekly reviews about each game I attend. Entering 2014, I have attended 459 NCAA football games at all levels. My book, Tales from the Tailgate: From the Fan who’s seen ’em all! published in 2011, tells my story over 30 years of when I attended a game in person played by each D1A team for the first time. Now, I haven’t attended a game at every major stadium on each campus (yet) because I’d probably be unemployed and definitely divorced by now. However, I’m proud to report that I remain gainfully employed and have been married to the same woman (“Saint Laurie”) for almost 25 years. We have two kids that have recently ventured away from our home in Byram Township, NJ over the last few few years. Our daughter Alex is a junior at the University of South Carolina (Go Gamecocks!), and our son Eric is now enlisted in the United States Navy (Go Navy!). You will find that my site and my book focus on enjoying a passion for college football and great opportunities to have fun with friends and family around the country.
