What the ’16 NFL Draft tells us about Texas

It is no secret that, with no disrespect to the upperclassmen, the University of Texas’ best players in 2015 were mostly freshmen. If current projections hold true, guys like John Burt, Conner Williams, Patrick Vahe, Chris Warren, Malik Jefferson, Holton Hill and Davante Davis could all have a career decision to make in January of 2018. That says nothing about the possible growth and maturation of DeShon Elliot, Anthony Wheeler and Charles Omenihu.

Gilbert, Mattox, and the Veer and Shoot

In truth, I don’t have anything to say until we get to DKR – Texas Memorial Stadium when the Longhorns take on Notre Dame in Week 1. I never go to press availabilities looking for the holy grail of information. I usually go to read body language, catch chatter off to the side, catch a private conversation with the person we are talking to and watch the players interact with each other.
