2019 NFL Draft updates & liveblog — Day 2

With the first day of the NFL Draft in the books, we have the really exciting part about the draft coming up next: which is literally everything else that follows Round One.

Day 2’s primed to be a big day for the MAC with a few guys projected to go today.

Join the discussion with me in the comments below, and/or on Twitter.


6:00 p.m.: Looking at Dane Brugler’s newest mock to project how today will shape up, he has three MAC guys going during Day 2: Sean Bunting (49th pick), Max Scharping (68), Maxx Crosby (74).

6:27: I think the first five players drafted, in order, will be: Sean Bunting, Max Scharping, Maxx Crosby, Tyree Jackson, Diontae Johnson.

And now that I say that, I’ll be way off and Akron’s going to dominate the third round.

6:37: The Draft’s second and third round bananza didn’t begin yet, but I’m watching the pregame (?) show and there’s a lady there wearing a custom NFL jersey with the number 19 and the last name is “NFL DRAFT”. Imagine spending the money it cost to make that jersey, then try thinking of a reason to ever wear it again after Saturday.

You do you, random lady, but… yeah, you do you.

7:43: Sean Bunting is off the board! With the 39th pick in the draft, the CMU corner who left after his junior season has been drafted by the Tampa Bay Bucs.

8:34: With 50 players picked in the NFL Draft (TE Irvin Smith Jr. from Alabama is the 50th pick, to Minnesota), Sean Bunting is the only MAC player who had his name called so far.

Who are the other top-50 MAC players taken in the draft since 2000?

  1. Miami QB Ben Roethlisberger, No. 11 pick in 2004
  2. WMU DE Jason Babin, No. 27 pick in 2004
  3. CMU OT Joe Staley, No. 28 pick in 2007
  4. NIU DE Larry English, No. 16 pick in 2009
  5. Ohio DB Mike Mitchell, No. 47 pick in 2009
  6. CMU OT Eric Fisher, No. 1 pick in 2013
  7. Buffalo LB Khalil Mack, No. 5 pick in 2014
  8. NIU S Jimmie Ward, No. 30 pick in 2014
  9. WMU WR Corey Davis, No. 5 pick in 2017

8:53: With the 55th pick in the draft, NIU’s Max Scharping comes off the board and is selected by the Houston Texans.

This is only the first time two MAC players were taken in the second round of the same draft in 10 years. The last duo to do so: Louis Delmas of WMU and Mike Mitchell of Ohio.

Here’s the list of every pair of MAC players taken in the same second round in a given year/draft:

  • 1963: Miami OT Tom Nomina (15) & Miami END Bob Jencks (25)
  • 1967: WMU DE Bob Rowe (43) & Kent State OG John Brooks (44)
  • 1974: Kent State WR Gerald Tinker (44) & Kent State LB Jack Lambert (46)
  • 1976: Ball State DB Shafer Suggs (33) & Miami RB Sherman Smith (58)
  • 1998: Kent State OG Bob Hallen (53) & EMU QB Charlie Batch (60)
  • 2006: WMU WR Greg Jennings (52) & WMU TE Tony Scheffler (61)
  • 2009: WMU CB Louis Delmas (33) & Ohio DB Mike Mitchell (47)

9:43: Hello!!!!!!!!!!

With Diontae Johnson now drafted, two of the MAC’s three players drafted (so far) are guys that left school after their junior seasons. Johnson, and Bunting.

Toledo’s a good program and gets guys to the NFL, but Johnson is only the fourth player in UT history to be drafted as a wide receiver. The other guys: Danny Crockett in 1970, to San Francisco (269 overall), Rod Achter in 1983 to Minnesota (239), and Carl Ford in 2003 to Green Bay (256).
