Tough Night
It was a rough night for Jimmy Garoppolo, who made a key mistake on his final pass of the night that proved to be the difference as the Patriots lost 27-23 in Houston.

    His name is Elhadji Ndiaye out of University of Nebraska-Kearney

    Sounds like originally was going to walk on at Arizona until Stoops got fired.

    Only been playing football for 5 years.

    He had his pro day last week, but I can't seem to find any results.

    What he was listed at was 6'5", 255 lbs and reportedly ran a 4.37 40.

    He played on special teams and in the limited tape I can find, he does seem to have some raw skills

    A couple articles I have read compare his skill set to Ziggy Ansuh from last year.

    Any other draftniks been on him yet and know any more?

    Very interesting. Good find.

    He certainly looks very fast, and reminiscent at times of Ziggy Ansah. Apparently Ansah is a friend.

    Interesting super sleeper pickup. Here's an article on the kid:
    Elhadji Ndiaye: The 2014 NFL Draft's Super Sleeper (Video)

    Apparently he has some NFL ties and although he looks pretty raw, there's a lot of potential there with that physical frame and athleticism. His hands look powerful on video but I wish he would tackle with better fundamentals ie wrap up.

    Yeah I'd take a chance on him in the 3rd day. Not sure I believe the 4.37 rumor... but I would believe a 4.5 from what I saw there.

    Looks way better than Markell Carter did in his highlights. His arms are also visibly long for his height.

    He's no Ansah but a mid round pick? Perhaps.

    Did he sign after the draft anywhere? I can't find anything on him.

    He has supposedly signed with the Cleveland Browns.
