I am curious, what are you basing this on? Seniors, classes, your feel, the number of preseason all conference selections?
Here's a list of NFL players off those Zook teams...
Jeff Allen
Jon Asamoah
Arrelius Benn
Josh Brent
Jerry Brown
Nate Bussey
Jack Cornell
Jeff Cumberland
Vontae Davis
Will davis
Glenn Foster
Justin Green
Michael Hoomanawanui
AJ Jenkins
Mikel LeShoure
Corey Liuget
Whitney Mercilus
Brit Miller
Akeem Spence
Justin Staples
Hugh Thornton
Martez Wilson
Tavon wilson

Do you think the current roster has 23 future NFL'ers on it?

I will give it a crack for this roster.

Brandon Peters (Late round-UDF)
Josh Bhebhe (Mid round)
Luke Ford (Drafted)
Daniel Barker (UDF)
Alex Palcho (Early to mid)
Kendrick Green (Early to mid)
Verdarian Lowe (Mid to Late)
Doug Kramer (Late to UDF)
Milo Eifler (Mid to UDF)
Jake Hansen (Late to UDF)
Marquez Beason (Making an assumption)
Nate Hobbs (Mid)
Tony Adams (UDF)
Sydney Brown (UDF)
Blake Hayes (Late to UDF)
James McCourt (Late to UDF)
TreSean Smith (Shot in the dark)

17

I think there are some others, but need to see development and health.

If 17 guys off the current roster make the show I'll be ecstatic; we should expect to win 8-9 games this year given a weak schedule and this level of talent

That's why I think all the "experts" who are picking us for last in the West are in for a huge surprise.
Feel like we could toss in Isaiah Gay, Calvin Avery, and Jamal Woods to that list if they live up to their potential this season

Right. I do not have enough faith yet. They have a lot to prove. That is the big issue with the list I put out is no DL on it. Maybe I could have put as UDF. The other 2 have much to prove. I also thought Reggie Corbin, Dre Brown, Dele Harding, and Jamal Milan would be on a roster by now though also...

I know it's a fan board, but I think we are thinking a little to highly of our players. I only think Milan has a legit shot. I could see practice squad for Reggie, Dre and Dele

Yes, but practice squads are not put together yet. They would likely be put on a roster and then a practice squad from there. So you basically just kind of clarified what I was trying to say.

I was wondering if people were being serious or not, like how I always wondered about ThaKid.

I’m not suggesting there wasn’t talent. but that’s a wide stretch and each of those years didn’t have all of those players.

Plainfield
Point taken on Mack's fourth season in '91. However, I believe if he had stayed we would have been relevant on a regular basis. He was in over his head at Texas. Illinois was a good fit for him. And he could coach. What he did with the '88 team, coming off a 3-7-1 season under White, was nothing short of miraculous. Had they beaten Michigan that season they would have gone to the Rose Bowl.
Mackovic didn’t recruit well that’s why the record declined. He had great success principally with Mike White recruits.

Do we know how many reported to school and therefore how many missing at this point?
