University of Maryland Football Head Coach Randy Edsall joined the Norris & Davis show to talk about his Terps. Maryland had one player taken in the NFL draft last week and a few other players who joined NFL teams as undrafted free agents including tight end Matt Furstenburg.
Steve asked about Furstenburg’s potential as an NFL tight end. Edsall said that he is a guy who can do a lot of things, he works and has the potential if he is given a chance.
Bob asked about Kenny Tate and what his prospects are. Edsall said that currently Kenny hasn’t been signed by anyone, but what he needs to do is prove to people he can be healthy.
Steve wanted to known which one of the guy that just was taken from his program has the best chance at sticking in the NFL. He said that Kevin Dorsey has the best opportunity and that the Packers really liked his speed. What Dorsey needs to do is prove himself on special teams.
Bob asked if C.J. Brown is going to be ready for the start of the season. Coach said absolutely and that his other injured quarterbacks are also healing well.
Steve asked what Edsall thought about paying college athletes. Edsall said he doesn’t thing they should be paid, but there should be some sort of stipend. He said the big problem comes into determining who to pay and how much to pay.
Bob asked about being in the Eastern Division in the new Big Ten. Coach said it is great to have such a high level of competition. He said that if you want to be the champion then you have to get to through those teams at some point.
