    ...in the fourth round of the 2012 NFL Draft, the Baltimore Ravens select Christian Thompson, safety, from South Carolina State University." REALLY???
    One, just one player from a HBCU was taken in this year's NFL Draft. If I remember correctly only three were chosen last year. Hopefully more will get contracts as free agents but this is a sad commentary on the state of Black College Sports. I'm old enough to remember when the draft (NFL & NBA) was filled with players from Black Colleges and Universities. Integration sure took care of that didn't it.
