As college football underclassmen continue to announce their decisions on whether or not to declare for 2014 NFL Draft leading up to the Jan. 15 deadline, an intriguing prospect has added his name to the list of players that will be going pro.
Michael Flacco, who played tight end at New Haven this past season where he recorded 9 touchdowns, has decided to put his name in the mix. Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports passed along the news.
Yes, Michael is the brother of Baltimore Ravens starting quarterback Joe Flacco.
Michael Flacco is described as a “former baseball prospect” who is “raw but athletic.” He will need to work on improving himself as a blocker, but there is expected to be some interest in his services. He is listed as 6-foot-6, 212 pounds, so he will need to bulk up as well.
On the agent front, Flacco will be represented by Joe Linta, who was able to land a $100 million contract for his brother after Joe led the Ravens to a Super Bowl title.
