With the college football season finally here, it is time for Impact Sports to breakdown the backfield of the Spartan’s offense.
This is the last installment of the summer position group breakdown series.
Moving forward with Impact Sports’ summer position group breakdown series, it is time to focus on one of the most improved units from last season – the receivers.
A group that was known for dropping passes in 2012 became a deep and reliable group of players in 2013.
The 2013 season was the most successful season Michigan State football has had in decades. The senior class is arguably the best in the team’s history. They won more games than any other senior class, including two Big Ten Championships, 3 three consecutive bowl games and were the 100th Rose Bowl Game champions. With all that talent and experience, several Spartan seniors hoped to hear their name called at the 2014 NFL draft.
Most of them did not get the call.
Darqueze Dennard is the only Spartan projected to be drafted in the first round.
The first team you see with a need at cornerback is the Detroit Lions at pick No. 10. I have said many times that I think it will be a mistake for Detroit to pass up on Dennard, but it is a mistake they are likely going to make.
Host Dan Tyler welcomes new co-host Andre Sims Jr. to the show. Sims Jr, a receiver and punt returner for the Spartans, discusses what it was like being a part of Spartan football history this past season.
Michigan State’s recent Pro Day is also discussed and so is the effect it had on the players entering the upcoming draft.
