Wednesday--June 24th, 2015

The Sentinel also ranks college football conferences for 2015.

According to RotoWorld, UMass OL Tyrell Smith is a potential NFL draft pick. In the NFL, the LT is usually the highest paid player on the team. Good protection on the QB's blind side (if he's right handed) makes the offense work.

The Minutemen were tied for 9th, in the MAC in sacks against, but UMass played four Power Five teams. Eleven of the team's 28 sacks came against Colorado, Vanderbilt, BC and Penn State. Only Eastern Michigan had more pass attempts than the Minutemen in 2014.
