Brad Kaaya, Miami’s all-time leader in passing yards (9,968), completions (720) and attempts (1,188), has made the decision to forgo his senior year at the University of Miami and enter the 2017 NFL Draft. While this is no surprise to most that this would be his last season at the “U”, his perceived value had dropped a bit from early season predictions.
“This was one of the toughest decisions of my life, however, I have zero worries that The U will indeed be back. No matter who is under center next season, I have no doubt in my mind they will have the platform and the resources around them to bring a major championship back to Coral Gables. Miami will forever hold a special place in my heart and I am proud to say that I will always be a Miami Hurricane.” – Brad Kaaya
While it is too early to speculate as to where Kaaya would go in the draft, some people see him as a Day 2 pick. Of course all that could change with an impressive combine and pro day at the University of Miami.
As someone who has seen every game and photographed Brad Kaaya numerous times, I will miss watching him play for the Hurricanes. He was a tough kid who took all the criticism and never let it get to him. He has an NFL ready arm and with some extra work put into improving his mobility, Brad will be a pleasure to watch on Sundays.
We here at the SportsBros.com wish Brad Kaaya all the best and we thank him for all that he has done for the University of Miami.
