Welcome to your daily Board Meeting. Each evening we’ll update you on the day’s hottest topics on the HornsNation forum.

1. NFL draft -- Texas: Carter Strickland crunched the numbers regarding the dearth of Longhorns selected in recent NFL drafts. The Longhorns might not have an offensive player drafted and will surely wait until late Friday to have anyone taken at all.

It comes down to development. Recruiting hasn’t dried up and neither has the ample exposure that helps get players known. It’s the same problem plaguing the current Texas teams. Too many misses and players who were not coached well enough or did not live up to their potential.
