UNT’s NFL Draft drought continues — quick thoughts

The NFL Draft is in the books yet again without a UNT player being selected.

The last player picked was Cody Spencer in 2004. That’s a decade long drought for those of you scoring at home.

I spent the day covering former Oklahoma State/Guyer standout Josh Stewart’s draft party, but I did talk to Zach Orr real quick.

He was stunned that UNT didn’t have anyone selected.

Brelan Chancellor had a monster career and a lot of teams had shown interest. The same was true of Orr. I thought Marcus Trice and another guy or two might have a shot as well.

The good news is that Chancellor signed with the Chargers and Orr with the Ravens.

Some of the greats in recent UNT history, including Lance Dunbar, Patrick Cobbs and Craig Robertson made it as free agents.

Chancellor and Orr will go the same route. Neither has ideal size, which is part of the reason they ended up at UNT in the first place.

UNT will break the drought one of these days. It’s just going to take at least one more year.
