New York (Northlands NewsCenter) - Saturday was the final day of the NFL Draft. UMD senior running back Isaac Odim was not selected this year. The Bulldog's all-time career rushing leader was coming back from a knee injury suffered last fall. Odim did work out for the Green Bay Packers and the Indianapolis Colts prior to the Draft.

Now Odim has to play the waiting game, to see if he will get an opportunity to tryout for an NFL club as a free agent. With the current NFL Lockout in progress, teams will not be able to sign players. NFL owners and players are under a bitter dispute, trying to reach a new Collective Bargaining Agreement.
