Wednesday---May 7th, 2014

NFL Mocks has a Tennessee Titans mock draft with Rob Blanchflower going to Titans in the sixth round.

More on Florida HS St. Thomas Aquinas pipeline to UMass: last Saturday I blogged about some St.Thomas Aquinas recruits from the first Whipple era.

More recently, Bill Nesselt graduated in 2013. He was redshirted in 2010 before winning All-CAA academic honors in 2011. Nesselt suffered a career-ending injury and worked as a student assistant to the UMass football team in 2012 and 2013. He taught and coached at St. Thomas Aquinas in the fall of 2013 and recently has been hired as linebacker coach at Ferrum College in Virginia. Congrats to Bill and hope he's starting a great career in coaching! Hopefully, he still has some connections with St.Thomas Aquinas and can put in a good word about UMass.
