Baylor should have several guys drafted

I did a Facebook Live last night. You can check that out here.

NFL Draft:

Ben Natan of Bleeding Green Eagle, our Philidelphia Eagles blog, had Kyle Fuller among the top 10 interior linemen:

10. Kyle Fuller, Baylor: Starting his last 39 games at Baylor is definitely a notable and impressive achievement. The 6'5", 305 pound center definitely looks like an NFL linemen, but he lacks the traits to contribute immediately. Inconsistent technique is not helped by a lack of athletic ability or steady strength. Fuller has the frame for the NFL, but he has a surprising amount of work to be done before he should be considered a high depth chart option.

Adam Grosbard of Dallasnewscom had this on K.D. Cannon:

Cannon left Baylor on the third place spot in program record books for receptions, receiving yards and receiving touchdowns. He was told by the NFL draft committee to return to school for his senior year but his mind was already made up. He had a strong NFL combine, recording some of the best marks for a receiver at the 40-yard dash and the vertical jump, but still is not expected to meet predecessor Corey Coleman's standards at the draft.

And he had this on Kyle Fuller:

Fuller was the heart of the Baylor offensive line for the last two years. But even after being the leading Bear for so long, Fuller is a really raw prospect. There are concerns about his ability to hold a block in both pass and run protection. He really didn't do a lot to make an impression in the combine with any of his results. But his size could get an NFL team to bite on him in hope he can grow into the NFL.

Josh Weinfuss of ESPN notes that Seth Russell has been cleared by medical professionals:

Former Baylor quarterback Seth Russell took another step this week toward completing his comeback from a fractured ankle in time for the NFL draft.

Russell was cleared by doctors during his medical recheck, according to a league source. The evaluation took place Thursday and Friday in Indianapolis. Russell was told he was "good to go," the source said.

Football:

Colt Barber of SicEm365 has an excellent story on R.J. Sneed. That story is available to all:

Less than four months ago Sneed first met Matt Rhule and Francis Brown, who Sneed said was the biggest reason he ended up at Baylor after being committed to Ole Miss only days prior to the date he was set to enroll at the SEC school.
