(STATS) - Former Samford quarterback Devlin Hodges isn't projected to be selected in the NFL Draft this year, but that doesn't mean he won't have a productive pro career.
The 2018 STATS FCS Walter Payton Award winner can gain inspiration from past national offensive players of the year who were undrafted yet went on to significant success. Players like Tony Romo and Brian Finneran in the NFL and Dave Dickenson and Bo Levi Mitchell in the CFL.
As a senior, the 6-foot, 207-pound Hodges led the FCS with 4,283 passing yards and accounted for 40 touchdowns (32 passing, eight rushing) in 11 games, claiming the 32nd Payton. The three-time Southern Conference offensive player of the year also set the FCS all-time record with 14,584 career passing yards.
