Clark Undrafted; Quarless, Shuler, Hull Land in NFL
Talk about surprises! The record-setting quarterback Darryll Clark went undrafted in 2010’s NFL Draft, but former teammates Andrew Quarless, Mickey Shuler, and Josh Hull were snagged before the seventh round came to a close.
The Green Bay Packers chose Quarless with the 154th overall pick. The former Nittany Lion tight end will have ample opportunity to earn playing time on a roster that is low on tight ends.
Fellow tight end Mickey Shuler landed with the Minnesota Vikings, which happen to be division rivals with the Packers, at pick number 214. They used to compete for the same position, but now they will compete for that NFC North division title.
Then there is the former walk-on Josh Hull, who was selected by the St. Louis Rams in the seventh and final round. It must have been the mustache that attracted the Rams to this tackling machine. It will be interesting to see if his intensity translates to the NFL.
Unfortunately, there were a few Lions who went undrafted. Clark, punter Jeremy Boone, and tackle Dennis Landolt will have to vie for roster spots in the upcoming week. With NFL potential, all three should sign a free agent deal.
