Does the future of the NFL lie in the hands of … Snoop Dogg?

Well, probably not as long as there’s a college football system, but the rapper can accurately say that he has a pipeline, if not the pipeline, with his Snoop Youth Football League. This year, it supplied several players, including De’Anthony Thomas, who was taken by the Kansas City Chiefs in the fourth round of the NFL draft. Cornerbacks Kam Jackson and Greg Ducre were signed as undrafted free agents by the Indianapolis Colts and San Diego Chargers.

“In the next 10 years, I see 50 kids from the SYFL playing in the NFL,” Snoop Dogg told TMZ at a seven-on-seven tournament at UCLA.

And he isn’t including Cordell Broadus, one of the country’s top high school players (who also happens to be his son).
