Though it would have been neat to see the first KSU player get drafted this year, I'm glad Sumpter (and Holland) have inked deals with NFL teams.

The Rams come to Atlanta to play the Falcons on 10/20. I'll definitely be monitoring if Sumpter makes the team and is active for that game. It'd be great to see him on the field.

The NFL is so tough. I wish him the best. The whiplash many young players endure of free agent to signing to trade to practice squad to roster cuts to gosh knows what else is a reality not documented much. Position changes, injuries, and personal struggles can make the NFL seem not as fun pretty fast.

Saw his interview and I hope he can go in and impress early. He really is a great wideout. Teams would double team him frequently and he’d still come down with it a lot of the time. Looking sharp in preseason will be a must.

Sad to hear Sumpter has been let go from the Rams and Darnell from the Saints. I’m really hoping they land somewhere. Maybe they can join the Stampeders with Gore if the NFL doesn’t workout for either of them.

Looks like he landed in the CFL as well, not with Gore and the Stampeders though:
