Brandon Crawford, senior almost in every sense of the word. Played at Ball State. After joining the Marines.

"I believe I have a shot at getting drafted," Crawford told the Associated Press. "If you turn on the film, it doesn't lie. My age might make some people put a blinder on, but I think you've got to see the film first."

I believe there was a 50-yr old guy who played at Mount Union.

It was a college in Texas that had a 48 year old LB? He has a book in the christian bookstores about his life and all.

This guy is trying to make a movie or a book or something.

His numbers aren't anything special, and he's no physical freak. He won't be drafted, but I wouldn't mind giving him a look in camp. He probably has 5-6 years potential in him best case scenario.

All about whether he can PLAY football or not. If he can give you something on specials or can convert to OLB, he has a shot, IMO. There are no 10 year contracts in the NFL anyway.

Most guys I know would give an internal organ for a 3 year NFL career.

I'm pretty sure you won't do well in the NFL if you miss an organ.

That Boston College freshman QB is like 24 years old I think... It'll be interesting to see if any of these older college players find themselves on rosters.

A team won't use a draft pick. I haven't seen him play but if hes any good like he says he is he'll get some tryouts with a team in training camp

You get to only live this life once. He's trying to do every thing he can, to get that last shot to play in the NFL. I wouldn't draft him either through, but may give him a tryout.

If he can play decent special teams he'd be worth a roster spot just for advertising.

Did you want to prove his point? (seriously, I can't tell)

It would be a cool story but I don't see a team using a draft pick on him.

Obviously he's not going to be drafted but definetley worth a shot as an UDFA, he's the kind of example I'd want on the Raiders. From what they said in the article about him on yahoo he's the hardest worker on the Ball State team.
