The wait is over for USF standouts Marlon Mack and Rodney Adams. They were both taken on day three of the 2017 NFL Draft.

Mack, who chose to forgo his final season in Tampa, comes off the board at pick 143 to the Colts. The Bulls all-time leading rusher had three seasons eclipsing the 1000-yard mark. He will look to carve out a role behind veteran back Frank Gore. Possibly third downs, and look towards seizing the top spot in Indy for years to come.

As for Adams, the Bulls top deep threat in 2016, he went to the Vikings at pick 170. He will look to use his 4.44 speed in Minnesota, where he could play a similar role Cordarrelle Patterson played last year for the Vikings.

Adams will join FSU star Dalvin Cook in Minnesota, where the Vikings have appeared to bolster their offensive identity.

Jamil King is a young draft pick working his way up the depth chart on the F.F.I. roster, who enjoys watching and writing about all of Florida’s football teams.
