“Joining Duke Johnson and Chad Thomas up in Cleveland, Defensiveback Sheldrick Redwine was the first Miami Hurricane to be drafted in 2019. Despite early praise for players like Joe Jacksonand Gerald Willis, excitement for this class slowly waned as the draft process dragged on and no Canes were drafted on the first two days of the process. But Redwine joins a team where, as a 4th round pick, he can make a very early impact.”
“...the four-star prospect has legit size at six-foot-four, 216 pounds and his stats are where you’d like them to be, even with room for improvement. One great sign is that Dino Babers wanted Van Dyke at Syracuse and the Orange offense is producing quarterbacks with grit, which is the top quality I would look for in a passer.”
“Just because spring football is over, doesn’t mean recruiting and transfer season has to end for Manny Diaz and Miami as well. Last week, something that caught the eyes of both Canes players and fans was that cornerback K.J. Sails announced that he was transferring from North Carolina.”
“What were your thoughts on the NFL Draft?
Very very surprised in where Miami guys landed, not so much the teams that drafted them, but how far everyone dropped. You saw guys like Gerald Willis and Michael Jackson Jr. projected as possible second or third round picks, but no Hurricanes were taken until the fourth round.”
“The additions of draftees to NFL Rosters change the complexion of depth charts. A few Miami Hurricanes alums will have challenges on their hands in training camp with the addition to the rookies to their franchises. Their roster spots could be in jeopardy.”
“The 2020 NFL Draft could mark the third year in a row that no Miami Hurricanes football alums are selected in the first round of the NFL Draft. The Hurricanes last had a stretch that long when they went six years, between 2009-14, without a first-round pick.”
