LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – I’ll begin with an apology. I'm sorry if I missed a name or two of a local college player who made an NFL roster for the 2015 season.

If it happened, the snub was not intentional. It was the result of scrolling through nearly 2,000 names in tiny type of the final rosters from 32 NFL teams. I tried to deliver some all-pro scrolling, but guys slip through the cracks.

Did my best – and double-checked every team.

Here are the results from the roster breakdown for the local college programs as the season kicks off Thursday night:

Louisville 25; Kentucky 15; Indiana 7; Western Kentucky 6; Eastern Kentucky 2; Murray State 1 and Centre College 1.

If there is a name that I overlooked, please send it to me at Rbozich@wdrb.com. (First name just came in at 12:35 p.m. Randall Cobb. Thanks to Corwyn Hodge and Kevin Bishop for the catch.)
