2 of 20 players from the American, a league record, which shows the across the board improvements of most schools’ recruiting/development.

The Athletic (behind paywall) has a snubs and surprises article that lists Bradwell as a snub, and Keyes as an under the radar 3rd day pick- full paragraph singing his praises. Good for him!

honestly think Tulane's pro day is a better opportunity for guys to open eyes of the scouts... neither Bradwell nor Dauphine had the stats to get a combine invite.. Bradwell is definitely built to be a pro fullback.. good speed and size.. but not a lot of FBs are drafted... he will be the type of guy who gets a camp invite and makes a team.. Dauphine's speed alone will get him a training camp invite, as well... but unless he learns to return kicks and play on special teams, he probably won't stick anywhere

Bradwell is too slow to warrant a draft pick but he’ll be in a camp. On the flip side, Dauphine is really really fast but can’t catch or pass protect and is considered injury prone so he’s most likely not getting drafted either. Fritz’s best RB at GSU wasn’t drafted and he was a far better player than those two (Matt Breida). The NFL is just a different animal. They don’t get it right all the time. I hope those two make the NFL look stupid by making a roster.

As far as I can tell, Dauphine caught 100% of his targets. That's a pretty nice catch percentage.

With how teams are treating the RB position as disposable these days, anyone who has a good camp, doesn't fumble, and can pass block has a shot to make a team for the length of their rookie scale contract before the team goes back to the draft for a younger and cheaper RB
Bradwell strikes me as an Orleans Darkwa/Fat Rob type who has a shot at that

Had this same thought. Hopefully he can find someplace who needs one.

NFL Combine What Matters: Also known as BoPete, he’s a very big corner who looks the part, but can he run? A fantastic 40 gets him drafted, and he could at least be a star special teamer.

NFL Combine What Matters: While he’s not a volume catcher at the next level, he’s a deep threat who could latch on as a No. 4 outside target. There’s no physical aspect to his game – he’s all about the speed and quickness.
