LAFAYETTE — Few wide receivers have been more productive in Cajuns history, still it's an uphill climb for the Louisiana wide out who hopes to hear his name called during the NFL draft.

"I talked to Rob (Hunt), I told him I don't plan on watching it. I'll watch for him. He and Kevin (Dotson) should go high. So when they're pick I'm turning it off," Bradley said of watching the draft this week. "If my phone rings it rings. But I'm not watching it after that."

Kevin Dotson and Robert Hunt are the headliners of this Cajuns' prospect class. Dotson is an All-American guard, Hunt, also an offensive guard, could be just the program's second, second-round draft pick joining Charles Tillman.

Raymond Calais, Michael Jacquet and Jacques Bodreaux round out this class of six.

"We knew we were special when we got here," Bradley said. "We said we were going to win something, and we did that. Now it's chasing another dream."

For the second straight season Bradley led Louisiana in receiving, posting a second consecutive double-digit touchdown season. He leaves the Cajuns behind fourth in program history in yards and receptions. His 23 reviving touchdowns ranks second.

The wide receiver class in this NFL draft is as deep as the league ever had, but whether that call comes during the draft or after, it change a player's life forever.

"A few weeks ago I was talking to my hommie, and said, you know in three weeks my life could change with one phone call."

If drafted, Bradley would be the program's first drafted wide receiver since Brandon Stokley.
