NFL Hall of Fame defensive tackle Warren Sapp was recently critical of potential #1 overall NFL Draft pick Myles Garrett. Sapp said he didn’t see consistent effort and production when watching Garrett’s tape, and isn’t convinced he is going to be a star in the league.
While both sides can debate if Garrett is the next Julius Peppers, or another Courtney Brown, the idea of an NFL Draft bust coming out of College Station is hardly a foreign concept.
Today in The Herd, Colin called A&M out for perpetually turning out NFL underachievers, and underachieving as a program.
Despite being the second largest university in Texas, they’ve had one double digit win season since 1998. They’ve only finished ranked in the top 25 three times in the last 17 years.
How is that even possible?
They have NFL caliber players, but in terms of draft prospects, they turn out a lot more Luke Joeckels and Johnny Manziels than Von Millers and Mike Evans.
Colin thinks A&M should be a perennial Top 10 program based on their resources and prime placement in arguably the top high school football recruiting state in the country. There’s something wrong with the culture if Bill Snyder is winning 10 games a year in the middle of nowhere at Kansas State and A&M has one legit contender in 20 years.
“Texas A&M, to me, is the most underachieving program in the country, and has been for years.”
