Pitt fullback Henry Hynoski isn't generally mentioned up there with the names of other former Panthers such as wide receiver Jon Baldwin, running back Dion Lewis, or defensive ends Brandon Lindsey and Greg Romeus. But he does expect to be drafted and according to him, he could be taken as high as the middle rounds of the draft:â†µ
"From talking to my agent and to several teams, I'm thinking I'll be going in the middle rounds, from the fourth to the sixth round somewhere," Hynoski said Tuesday after a workout. "Only one fullback was taken last year, and he went in the fifth round. But crazy things can happen in the draft, so we'll just wait and see."â†µ
As I wrote over at Cardiac Hill, the fact that he could be taken despite rushing for only 33 yards last season may seem laughable. But it's more about the lack of quality fullbacks in the draft and Hynoski could benefit from that.
