   I noticed that Alex Tanney of Monmouth (IL) is still hanging in there, making the Giants' 53 man roster.

Tanney looked good in preseason and deserved his spot.....although I hope the Giants never need him to play

Ali Marpet , Hobart and TB Bucs, is currently the third highest ranked Olineman in the entire NFL as per Pro Football Focus, as of week #3...this should be his ProBowl year

He was humble enough to attend the Hobart-Union game in Geneva on his bye week this Saturday. A total class guy that came out on the field for the Geneva youth program kids at half time. Proud to call him a Statesman .

Only 3 of the 520 roster spots in the AAF went to former D3FB guys. I don't know why, but I honestly thought this league would be a good place for D3 kids with pro aspirations to catch on. Not so much.

Guys selected were Heidelberg's Donteea Dye (played on Bucs) by Orlando, NC Wesleyan's Dwayne Hollis (Philly Soul) by Atlanta, and Jake Payne (Shenandoah, played in AFL) by Birmingham.

I posted a while ago the AAF is going to live or die by how much local support it can attract. Having big name college players that washed out of the NFL is going to draw more of a crowd than a better roster of no name D3 players. Especially in the first years. That is just the reality.People will pay for one more view of their favorite college player from Football Factory U.
