Most early entry candidates for the NFL Draft aren’t 26 years old.
But most of them don’t have a minor league baseball career or a Super Bowl MVP brother, either.
Mike Flacco was a third-team Division II All-American at New Haven this year. He caught 30 passes for 591 yards and nine touchdowns in 10 games, his first football action since high school.
He spent the previous four seasons playing baseball in the Orioles farm system, topping out at the AA level before retiring. Whether he gets that far in football remains to be seen, but having a famous brother and name recognition might help get him into a camp.
