Mark Herzlich taken in UFL draft

Former Boston College linebacker Mark Herzlich was one of six former ACC players taken in the UFL draft. Herzlich was drafted in the 10th round by the Omaha Nighthawks. Other conference representatives include:

  • Jamie Cumbie, DL, Clemson

  • Ryan Sims, DT, North Carolina

  • Kennedy Tinsley, FB, North Carolina

  • Dave Philistin, LB, Maryland

  • Jonathan Lewis, DT, Virginia Tech

Because of the NFL's lockout, none of the undrafted rookies can sign with NFL teams. The UFL could be their only chance to get on the field this year, but that doesn't mean they'll sign a contract. If they do, those players are bound to the UFL, even if the NFL lockout ends.
