An NFL rookie comes to his new team with few, if any guarantees. We have seen firsthand that draft picks as high as the third round can be cut before they ever see a regular season roster. Low round draft picks are cut all the time, and undrafted free agent signings are just hoping to hang on for a spot on the practice squad and most will never realize their NFL dream. Rookie tight end Kyle Efaw has much longer odds.
The former Boise State Bronco was on the Mackey Award preseason watch list heading into his senior season. He would finish the 2011 season with six touchdown catches and a spot on the All Mountain West Honorable Mention team.
Granted, Honorable Mention in the Mountain West won't exactly have NFL scouts placing you high on their draft boards. But he did grade out as a priority free agent.
Efaw, of course, was hoping to generate more interest-- enough to be a draft selection. But if not, certainly as an early phone call once the draft concluded. He would get neither.
