WAC has country's sixth best NFL draft

While the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs were nearly shutout in last weekend's NFL Draft, the WAC made an outstanding showing with 17 players taken. That was the sixth best mark in the country and ahead of the Big East (16), Moutain West (9) and Conference USA (8).

Tech's Jonathan Holland was taken with the next to last pick in the draft, which doesn't speak well for former coach Jack Bicknell's recruiting. Doubtless, new Tech coach Derek Dooley will use the overall success of the WAC in his recruiting pitch this fall.

Look for the Bulldogs to have a better showing in the future.
