I would love to see every senior get drafted or picked up by an NFL team. In all reality, there are several seniors that will not get that chance. Of the group this year, which one, (if any) do you think has a shot of staying on as a GA? I think there will definitely be a shot for Kovacs in the NFL, but I could sure picture him as a coach someday. Thoughts?
Which senior this year would you like to see stay as a grad assistant?
Kovacs, Roh, Campbell, Roundtree and DENARD
oh oh oh oh oh
I almost forgot
MAD JACK KENNEDY would be a rad GA.
Jack Kennedy was stubborn enough to get himself onto the field and then the team, so why not the coaching staff as well?
Great minds think alike, and apparently so do we.
I think it's all part of the GROUPTHINK here on MGoBlog.
Kovacs, Kovacs, Kovacs
Kovacs this year is the guy who I would really like to see coach someday. I am not sure that he has a future in the NFL due to his athleticism. What has made him such a great player has been his ability to play extremely smart and maximize his potential.
Last year I would have loved to see RVB stay on as a grad assistant for similar reasons. He was also very football smart and I think he would have made a great DL coach in the future. Heck, Mattison even let RVB call stunts on the line; one such call was apparently the reason for the Purdue sack last year.
Well, luckily football is a sport where hard work and intelligence can take you a long way, possibly even to the NFL.
Mealer or Kwiatkowski
After seeing his video with Roundtree, Kovacs is clearly destined for a future in broadcasting.
I would say I'd like to see Kwiatkowski as a GA.
I definately see kovacs as a coach one day, hopefully after a couple years in the NFL.
In combination with Hoke selecting a GA as a spokesperson. Will gives the best commentary and his perspective from coaching would be classic material.
How everyone's answer isn't 'Kovacs' is puzzling to me.
I think because a lot of people, myself included, think that Kovacs could play in the NFL for a few years. Maybe not drafted but could make a try-out for a team as a sure-tackling backup safety and special teams guy.
He's the kind of guy the Bears would pick up and with Brady's brother coaching the secondary here I think it would be a good fit.
Smart, good player, hard working, role model, great representative of the school on and off the field. Could be UofM's Art Shell.
It's clearly Kovacs.
Presumably, right or not, the NFL will say he lacks the requisite athleticism to play S. Kid is bright, so if he wants to find a different job, good for him. If he wants to stay in football, welcome him with open arms.
was talking about Kovacs, I hate to say it but he does seem to fit in those RR shoes
I spoke with Fred Jackson this morning and he assured me that Kovacs will be the first overall pick in the draft.
i'd like to say denard, but it'd hard for him to be a coach under hoke's regime. after this year, the spread is dead, and the things that make denard special are the kinds of things you can't really teach.
There are even x's and o's in his name for godsakes.
All of them.
There are 125 student-athletes on this football team, and just about all of them are going pro in something other than football.
...might be advantageous to have Vincent Smith on staff. I don't think it would hurt to have a Florida guy helping with recruiting efforts. We had a decent pipeline for a couple years there; with the amount of talent in the Sunshine State it would be nice to snag a guy or two each year.
Kovacs, Denard, and Campbell
Kovacs and Roh.
