Fasano Goes Pro

In serious NFL draft news, junior Notre Dame tight-end Anthony Fasano declared himself eligible for draft today. This was not a surprise, though, it was thought Fasano might stick around for his last year of eligibility with Notre Dame being strong contenders for the national championship next season and the large number of good tight ends being available in this year's draft. The loss of Fasano should not hurt Notre Dame that much as they have two pretty talented tight ends already on the roster in Marcus Freeman and John Carlson and they have the top high school tight end in the country coming in the fall. Fasano should be a 2nd or 3rd round pick. Best of luck to Fasano and he would look awfully good in a Bears uniform.
