5 Indiana HS Players Drafted?


Recommended Posts

I read somewhere that 5 were drafted. Who is the 5th that I'm missing: 

  1. George Karlaftis: 1st Round: Kansas City via Purdue and West Lafayette 
  2. David Bell: 3rd Round: Cleveland via Purdue and Warren Central
  3. Russ Yeast: 7th Round: Los Angeles Rams via Kansas State, Louisville, and Center Grove
  4. Zander Horvath: 7th Round: Los Angeles Chargers via Purdue and Mishawaka Marian
  5. ?

Andrew Mevis (K): Undrafted Free Agent: Jacksonville Jaguars via Iowa State and Fordham and Warsaw Community High School

Mevis finished his only season in Ames (as a graduate transfer from Fordham) 20-of-23 on field goals, including 2-for-2 on kicks of 50+ yards, and was perfect on PATs. Mevis was arguably the best kicker in the entire draft, and will presumably have a shot at taking the starting job since the Jaguars released longtime kicker Josh Lambo midway through the 2021 season.

The Colts have a diamond in the rough with unsigned FA, Small. Solid kicker and kid who's used to kicking under pressure with game winners against #1 Alabama in 2021 and #5 Florida in 2020 among others.

The Packers signed a former IU player as an Undrafted Free Agent.  It was good to see 3 Boilers drafted as there were some also UDFAs.  I think George Karlaftis has the best opportunity to hoist a Lombardi Trophy.  Sure, getting past the Packers will be next-level impossible, so there's that.
