David Bruton is hopeful that his teammates get some good luck this weekend but the Notre Dame free safety could be the only Fighting Irish player drafted this weekend.
There is a parallel between the final recruiting class of Ty Willingham at the school and the performance by the Irish last season, that's for sure. The NFL doesn't see the talent either.
Bruton is a projected mid-round pick with a good combination of size and range. He met with the Bears' coaching staff at the Senior Bowl in January but has not had much contact since. Bruton did make two official visits to Denver and the New York Jets and the Broncos are particularly interested as they also put him through a private workout on campus.
"I have heard anywhere between late second to fifth, I don't know,'' Bruton said. "Wherever I fall is where I fall. At the end of the day, I still have to make the team and eventually become a starter wherever I go."
