Speaking of draft potential, I wonder if Lovett has any draft potential. He is pretty big at 6'3" 220 pounds as a junior.

There was a Yale QB 20 years ago that had a nice NFL career as a fullback (Hetherinton?) much like the DL from Brown and TE from Harvard. Fullbacks are non existent in college football so the NFL who does not want to run their 20million dollar QBs on short yardage or goal line plays have to be creative in finding big, tough athletes

At this point fullbacks - true fullbacks - are mostly non-existent in the NFL, too. You see some so-called "H-backs" who are basically tight ends who can play out of the backfield.

When you look at what happened to Keenan Reynolds (record-setting QB runner, now on a practice squad as a WR/KR) and Terelle Pryor (also now a WR), it's clear to me that Lovet would have a chance only as a WR, but I doubt he's fast enough to play that position in the NFL. Even a big strong runner like Tebow could not find a pro position as a "goal line" runner. Limited roster sizes don't allow teams to carry highly specialized position players who are not truly exceptional.

Sometimes a good college player just doesn't fit at the next level.
