    I'd like to throw a late pick at Da'Rick Rogers. Might slip under the radar.

    I'm kind of ashamed that my Alma Mater would take a student/player with the record Da'Rick Rogers has.

    yea, they had a tight end that worked out for the Giants when I was in the 8th grade. They usually have someone being looked at, but usually only by local teams.

    Frank Omiyale, OL for the Seahawks is a Tech grad. He has been in the league about 8 years and started for the Bears for a while.

    Mike Smith coached there 12 years.

    Mack Brown (Unv of Texas) is a Cookeville native, I think his brother is still the head coach at TTU.

    Yea, I ran into Mack Brown at A Taste of China over by 10th and Washington a couple of years back when I was working on my undergrad. Everybody respected his and his wifes privacy and left them alone. It was hard to miss as they were both decked out in Texas Longhorn gear lol. Yes, Watson Brown is still TTU's HC. Still though, TTU has been tainted by D Rogers.
