HBCU Prospects Watch, Wait And Tweet

As expected, no HBCU players were selected in the first round. That’s not unusual, since only three HBCU prospects have been drafted in the first round of the NFL Draft since 1999.But the wonderful world of Twitter gave us a little insight of some of the things that go on in the minds of NFL prospects as they wait for their future to unfold. Here are some of Thursday’s highlights.

Howard linebacker Keith Pough opened the day by congratulating those players selected in the first round. Classy.

Florida A&M defensive lineman Ellie Hyppolite got a little reflective as he realized his future would forever be changed after this weekend.

Alabama State’s Greg Jenkins and Terren Jones played it cool.


Jenkins kept the cool vibe, cracking jokes as the picks came in.


And former Savannah State star and Pro Football Hall of Famer left some words of wisdom for the small school/HBCU prospects.
