Scouting the Sun Belt: North Texas

Here's a good trivia question; name the last team with a losing record to get an invite to a bowl game? The answer; the Mean Green of 2001. After a horrendous start UNT strung together a bunch of wins towards the end of the campaign and, coupled with MTSU stumbling in the final weeks, made their way into the post-season. Noted as the alma mater of Mean Joe Green, we'll see mostly free agents coming from this program in 2003.

Most of the prospects on the offense are roster fodder. Kevin Galbreath is a productive ball carrier on the college level, displaying good vision and toughness on the inside but possesses less than desirable size/speed numbers for the next level. Tight end Jeff Muenchow is much the same, a hard working and tough player with limited skills for the next level. Receiver George Marshall may get a few late round looks with a good campaign in '02.

Unlike the offensive side of the ball, UNT has a pair of legitimate prospects on defense. Senior corner Don McGee is an athletic defensive back with solid technique, size and skills. He is effective backed off the line of scrimmage and looks as though he could handle dime situations at the next level. It is unlikely McGee gets drafted but will be signed as a free agent. Defensive tackle Brandon Kennedy has real talent and potential for the next level….if you are willing to overlook the fact he barely touches the scale at 5-10. Only a junior, Kennedy is explosive, relentless and makes plays in every direction. Were he four inches taller he's a first day selection but more than likely falls into the later rounds in '04.
