Two GSU Panthers Make the NFL Draft

After a winless 2013 campaign, the Georgia State University (that’s the real GSU) Panthers made a few headlines during the NFL draft’s final day.

Tackle Ulrick John was drafted by the Indianapolis Colts in the seventh and final round, while wide receiver Albert Wilson – arguably the best player the program has ever produced in its short history – signed as a rookie free agent with the Kansas City Chiefs.

Only one other Panther has been drafted into the NFL – Christo Bilukidi, drafted by Oakland in the 2012 draft’s sixth round. He recently signed with the Cincinnati Bengals.

If he makes the team, Wilson may be working with a QB familiar to everyone in the Peach State: Aaron Murray, the record-setting UGA signal caller who was drafted by the Chiefs in fifth round.

Here’s a video of Wilson’s NFL scouting combine workout —

    The real GSU is Georgia Southern which actually had two players drafted in the 3rd and 7th rounds instead of a draft pick and a free agent. In fact, Georgia Southerns QB Mckinnon from Sprayberry High was drafted before Aaron Murray. On October 25, we will show the world who the real GSU is.

    As the father of a Georgia State student-athlete (yes, cycling is a sport) I also pass along my congrats to the drafted players!…as well as to WR Albert Wilson, signed as a free agent by Kansas City.

    Am I the only one who is getting tired of the GSU updates on this site? There are about 3-4 schools in this state that actually matter and GSU is not one of them.
