Can Syracuse avoid first 2-year streak without NFL Draft pick since 1949?

Even keeping in mind the recent 15-year rough patch for Syracuse Orange football, the program’s managed to produce NFL players throughout its long history.

After having at least one player selected every year from 1976 through 2007, Syracuse has been shut out three times in the last decade — 2008, 2015 and 2017. We could’ve been shut out back in 2016 as well, if not for (now New York Giants punter) Riley Dixon getting picked in the seventh round. So needless to say, things have been rough of late, especially in the era since Scott Shafer took the reins back in 2013.
