Deion Sanders: HBCU players were neglected and rejected in the NFL draft
What Deion Sanders said on Instagram:
“I witnessed a multitude of kids that we played against that were more than qualified to be drafted,” Sanders wrote. “My prayers are that This won’t EVER happen again.”
-This was a particularly challenging year for players from HBCUs because the COVID-19 pandemic moved their seasons to the spring. That meant seniors had to either skip their final season of college football or accept that they wouldn’t be available to participate in workouts for NFL teams.-
Several players from HBCUs have signed as undrafted free agents.
Good luck to all the HBCU players trying to make it into the NFL.
