Myers, Isiah

Card: Sage 2015
Acquired: 2016, Gunderson Trade

Isiah Myers played for the Washington St Cougars from 2011 to 2014. His numbers grew for the most part every year climaxing in his senior campaign, when he was on the Bilitnikoff Watch List. There Isiah put up 78 receptions for 972 yards and 12 touchdowns. Both his receptions and touchdown numbers are top 3 single game records in school history.  His best game however came against Portland State in 2014, when Isiah hauled in 11 passes for 227 yards and 3 touchdowns, including a 55 yard grab.

Myers was not selected in the 2015 NFL Draft. His size (6’0″, 188) and average pro day may have worked against him. I was surprised to see that he didn’t apply his trade to the Arena leagues, however currently Isiah is putting his Sociology degree to good use in Florida.

Hull, Mike

Card: Sage 2015
Acquired: 2017, Hobby Box Breaker

Mike Hull was a nice find by the Miami Dolphins. A diamond in the rough out of Penn State, Hull carries on the Nittany Lion tradition of Linebacker U. Hull played for the school during its collapse and rebirth from the Sandusky scandal from 2013 to 2014. He displayed versatility by switching from outside linebacker to inside linebacker under Bill O’Brien. He posted 216 total tackles, 15 tackles for loss, 2.5 sacks, 5 passes defensed, and 1 interception for 12 yards. His 2014 campaign earned Mike Big 10 LB of the Year.

Hull was not selected in the 2015 NFL Draft. Scouts did not like his size or athleticism. Undeterred Mike signed with the Miami Dolphins and spent the season on and off the practice squad. He returned to the Dolphins in 2016 and made the squad. An important role player in Miami’s defense, Mike finished with 33 combined tackles and an interception that season. He returned in 2017 and started 3 games, posting 35 combined tackles and a fumble recovery.
