I know there is probably not one of the Leathernecks from this year that will be drafted, but anyone have any thoughts if any of our players may get picked up from free agency??

I could maybe see Kintzel getting a few looks.
He did well against the Big 10 teams (9 total tackles each game), averaging 8.8 tackles per game and has won quite a few awards.

He's about average size-wise for what NFL scouts are looking for in an LB. Don't know much about his speed (how fast he can run a 40 yd).

Generally, we've had better luck getting defensive players in the NFL, since historically we haven't had many offensive players with quite the speed that NFL teams are looking for.
