3) Yes in the 103 years that Chadron state has been around, 2 football players have made it to the NFL. I guess that means that it makes no difference whether or not a player gets a scholarship to Alabama or Chadron. Awesome logic.
4) What you also neglect to mention is that Woodhead went undrafted, in fact, he wasn't even invited to the NFL Combine. He was waived in the NFL 3 times.
Yeah it didn't hold him back at all that he played at a division 2 school. I don't know why more players don't just sign with Chadron or Valdosta State or Shippensburg and instead go to play for Alabama or Florida or LSU? I mean, it makes no difference if you can play, so why not?
Victor Cruz said he met Michael Strahan when he was either a senior in HS or freshman in college at UMass. Strahan said, "I went to Texas Southern, not a football power. Osi (Umenyiora) and DeMarcus Ware played together at Troy St. If you are good enough, they WILL find you."
