It would seem that the two-steps-forward, one-step-back dance continues for Texas State football. Just 10 years ago, Bobcat football relevance outside of San Marcos was only a vision. In 2015, Texas State is starting to put a dent into their lack of popularity among outsiders. 

Last week, NFL decision-makers certainly didn’t forget about Texas State. Craig Mager was taken as the 83rd overall pick by the San Diego Chargers. The Panthers selected David Mayo — who led the nation in tackles last season — with the 169th pick, in the fifth round. After the draft concluded, the Houston Texans signed Will Johnson, the St. Louis Rams nabbed Terrance Franks and the Arizona Cardinals signed Michael Orakpo as undrafted free agents.
