    He'll play I guess wherever he thinks gives him the best shot at a position.

    10th round of the UFL draft makes him a 51st overall pick. Equal to a second rounder in the NFL draft.

    I bet he has a far better chance there than making it on an NFL team.

    On a side note, RB Adrian Peterson was a 3rd round pick

    Well ... part of the reason he was not a high pick in the UFL is I am sure they thought he might not play there and be in the NFL.

    For the most part all of the early drafts are players that the league is almost certain will be available. The Herzlich pick is a flier in case the lockout keeps going.

    Without a lockout, Herzlich would already be in a camp as a UDFA. And the thing is ... he could EASILY just wait, go to a camp, get cut and still be in the UFL within two weeks.

    Another side note ... Andrae Allison was the 19th pick.

    The UFL is a great chance for him to go out and play and show what he can do at the next level, well a level above NCAA, and prove that he can play.

    Read today that he's not going to play in the UFL.
