It’s been a year ago, almost to the day, that three members of the Nebraska Cornhuskers solidified themselves on the Redskins’ Draft boards with their efforts at the school’s Pro Day. A mere seven weeks later, Roy Helu, DeJon Gomes and Niles Paul were called with successive Redskins picks, quadrupling the Nebraska presence on the team (Adam Carriker).
Yesterday was the 2012 Pro Day in Lincoln, Neb., and although none of the Redskins’ players were in attendance, it was definitely on the minds and fingertips of the two that use Twitter.
Paul tweeted his best wishes to his former Big Red teammates, sending good vibes to the NFL-hopefuls:
S/o to all my boys chasing their dreams at Nebraska's pro day today!—
Niles Paul (@Niles_Paul) March 08, 2012
And it worked.
