Strong year for HBCU draft prospects

(STATS) - The Historically Black Colleges and Universities of college football are no longer pipelines for the NFL, but each year dozens of their former players are on rosters.

This year is particularly strong for prospects coming from the HBCU schools of the FCS - both for the NFL Draft next month and those who will sign free agent contracts afterward.

"I feel like (HBCUs) might be a little less talented than the other levels, but I feel like there are still players on that level," said one of the better prospects, North Carolina A&T running back Tarik Cohen. "And it's my job right now to show them it has players on this level."
