The first day of the NFL Draft saw no #MACtion, but the second day promises to at least consider it.
There are plenty of hot prospects from the Mid-American Conference that could see their name called by the commissioner tonight, including one of the most interesting personalities in the entire draft with Miami's CB Quinten Rollins. Central Michigan WR Titus Davis, CMU DT Leterrius Walton, and Western Michigan DB Donald Celiscar are also names to look out for on this second day.
Rollins has to be the most intriguing guy in the draft class, as his transition from four-year starter and captain of the RedHawks basketball team to a ballhawking cornerback for the football squad made MAC football fans (and NFL scouts) drool with every display of insane athleticism. If you really want to see the insanity of his athleticism, here is a basketball and football video highlight reel where they set the basketball plays to football play-by-play and vice versa. (It's actually hella cool.)
Of course, we cannot forget about Titus "TD" Davis, who had to follow the legendary shadow of Antonio Brown in the pleasant mount. Despite being injured for a third of the season, Davis still managed to be one of the most efficient receivers in college football, with 60 receptions, 980 yards, and 13 TD's, accounting for about 25% of CMU's offense. Davis shattered all-time CMU receiving records, and set an NCAA all-time mark along the way by becoming the first receiver in Division 1 to ever score 8+ TD's in all four seasons. If there is one play he will forever be remembered for, it is the "Hurricane Play" from the wild and wacky Bahamas Bowl, where Titus Davis put his body on the line in order to bring the Chips within punching distance of a largely improbable win.
Regardless of who goes where, let's all celebrate the fact that our favorite MAC stars will finally get a chance to achieve their dreams. Grab a drink in the spirit of #MACtion, and let's talk footbawl.
