    NFL.com news: Herzlich drafted by UFL, a league that's gaining some leverage

    Mark Herzlich watched 254 picks come and go over the weekend at the NFL draft, never hearing his name called.

    The same fate didn’t await him during the UFL draft on Monday night. The Boston College linebacker, a cancer survivor, was selected by the Omaha Nighthawks of the 3-year-old league with the second-to-last of 52 picks.

    Now he has a decision to make. Fight for a roster spot in the NFL, whenever it re-opens for business. Or be virtually assured of one in the UFL, with the idea of using his play there to give him a better shot at sticking in the big league.

    While that might have pumped the brakes on the UFL raiding the crew of the approximately 400 undrafted free agents signed by the NFL teams each spring, it didn’t stop the poaching altogether. Herzlich was one of 21 examples in the 52-player draft, joined by quarterbacks Jerrod Johnson of Texas A&M, Ryan Colbourn of Fresno State and Jeremiah Masoli of Ole Miss. Another recognizable name from the college ranks was wide receiver Jeff Maehl of Oregon.


    Not sure where to get a list, prob jus google ufl draft lol but there goes some of the UDFAs, more reason I hope AJ made it clear to who he was intersted in to wait for the NFL to iron out a new CBA. This can only add more urgency to get this year rolling. *preferably wout delay to the released schedule*
