Deion Sanders has always spoken his mind, and his latest statement called out the Houston Texans.
As the head coach of Jackson State, Deion Sanders has been spearheading the movement to get Jackson State to a state of being a “football factory.” So far, Sanders has had a great impact upon the program, including flipping Travis Hunter, the second-overall ranked prospect in the entire country, from Florida State (Sanders’ alma mater) to Jackson State.
When Jackson State held their pro day yesterday, he led off by saying that it went well and that 24 teams showed up. However, the Houston Texans didn’t send a single scout or personnel member there, and as a result, they got called out by name along with the rest of the teams. Just take a look at the video below:
Houston Texans should really have sent someone to Jackson State.
In today’s NFL, your traditional big schools will always get the attention. However, more FCS schools (like JSU) have been producing great players such as:
- James Robinson (Illinois State)
- Cooper Kupp (Eastern Washington)
- Kamu Grugier-Hill, Jimmy Garoppolo (Eastern Illinois)
- Garoppolo hasn’t lit up the NFL, but you still have to be good to get to a Super Bowl and NFC Championship games in different seasons.
- Tytus Howard (Arkansas State)
- Darius Leonard, Javon Hargrave (South Carolina State)
- Terron Armstead (Arkansas Pine-Bluff)
It’s important to keep going to schools at the FCS level because you never know when you’re going to find a playmaker. The rest of the players from the FCS in the NFL can be seen here. Especially when you got Sanders, who is very influential to many players, there could be a lot of draft gems in the future.
Let’s hope that the Texans don’t wind up on this list again next year.
