Former Griz Football Players Hoping to Hear Name Called at NFL Draft

Posted: Updated:
Several University of Montana football players are hoping to hear their names called tomorrow at the draft. Former Grizzlies Jordan Tripp and Brock Coyle are considered by several national publications to be potential breakout stars and could be drafted in the middle-rounds. It won't be the first time a Griz football player has been drafted, and they say the long-list of success stories helps their cause as they look to get noticed.

"It absolutely helps.  After the season is over, I talked with a few.  Mark Mariani…Shann, and a few of those guys in the process.  It absolutely helps that teams know Grizzlies they are hard workers, we love the game of football and we're good football players.  It doesn't matter where you play at. Alabama or anywhere, if you can play the game of football you can play in the NFL, so it's been awesome to have guys like Kroy and Marc paving the way for all of us, and Trumanine, it's been great," Brock Coyle.
