  05/20/20 - Jason PirtlerSr/2021, North Texas, 6-1, 225 (DS#999 FB) + More +

  The former walk-on came to UNT as a wide receiver before moving to tight end ahead of last season. The switch helped Pirtle emerge as a key weapon for the Mean Green. He finished with 17 catches for 263 yards and five touchdowns last season on his way to earning honorable mention All-C-USA honors. Pirtle is in line to move into the starting lineup in his senior season and will be better prepared to contribute after bulking up. - Denton Record

  05/18/20 - Makyle SandersSr/2021, North Texas, 6-0, 205 (DS#999 SS) + More +

  Sanders made a combined seven starts as a junior at the nickel and safety spots for UNT last season. He finished with 38 tackles, an interception and three pass breakups. The Mean Green lost Muhammad and Taylor Robinson, their top two safeties, after last season. Sanders should see his role expand this year. - Denton Record

  04/29/20 - Jaelon DardenSr/2021, North Texas, 5-09, 172 (DS#49 WR) + More +

  Seth Littrell has never lacked confidence when it comes to predicting success for North Texas since taking over the program ahead of the 2016 season. Littrell said his goal heading into his debut campaign was to win a bowl game. The Mean Green haven't always hit those marks but have enjoyed a whole lot of success since while playing in the postseason three of the last four years. Littrell was at it again leading up to last week's NFL draft. UNT hasn't had a player selected since 2004, when the Oakland Raiders snapped up linebacker Cody Spencer in the sixth round.

The Mean Green had the longest drought in major college football heading into this year's draft and saw the slump drag on another year when it didn't have a player among the 255 picked. The event wrapped up on Saturday. "It will happen," Littrell said of the program breaking through. "We have done a good job evaluating in recruiting and have talented players on our roster. Hopefully it will happen pretty quickly. It would mean a lot." - Denton Record

  04/02/20 - Mason FineSr/2020, North Texas, 5-10, 189 (DS#24 QB) + More +

  Fine will go down as one of the best players and best all-around guys to ever play for the Mean Green. He threw for 12,505 yards and 93 touchdowns in his career. Both totals are program records, as is his career passing efficiency rating of 140.68. If it was all about talent and character in the NFL draft, Fine would be a no-brainer selection. Unfortunately for Fine, size also comes into play. Fine never would have ended up at UNT if he wasn't undersized. He showed he could excel at the college level at his listed size of 5-foot-11 and 190 pounds at UNT. It looks like the tape measure may have finally caught up with Fine at the Shrine Game and sunk his draft hopes. Fine measured in at 5-9 and 189 pounds. His hands measured at under nine-inches. Those figures will make it highly unlikely that a team takes a chance on drafting Fine. He wasn't invited to the scouting combine, and UNT's pro day was wiped out by the spread of COVID-19, which didn't help matters. - Denton Record
