One of the biggest stats from the NFL Draft that is just unavoidable is the fact that absolutely zero Texas Longhorns players were drafted over the weekend as the Mack Brown era of Rickey Williams, Roy Williams and others ended with a silent thud. Dust had a better day at the NFL Draft than the Longhirns did, but so too did Snoop Dogg.
The rapper is known for many things, but one of the more legal legacies he’s leaving behind his his youth football team he runs that is more of a clinic than we thought.
It’s been well-documented that Kansas City Chiefs rookie De’AnthonyThomas played his youth ball for Snoop Dogg in the Snoop Youth Football League before going on to college stardom at Oregon. But a couple of other alumns from Snoop’s youth league have an NFL shot, as well: cornerbacks Kam Jackson and Greg Ducre were signed as undrafted free agents by the Indianapolis Colts and San Diego Chargers, respectively.
Snoop Dogg 3, Texans Longhorns 0.
It’s more than interesting that the Snoop Dogg football clinic produced more NFL draftees than the Longhorns did and it says a lot about why the University decided to move on from Mack Brown, who has clearly lost either his recruiting touch or his coaching touch.
Maybe the Longhorns should have just hired Snoop Dogg, as apparently he can identify talent and set it on the right course for the NFL.
