East Lansing, Mich. – Every week, Sports Illustrated's Spartan Nation takes a deep dive into the State of Michigan State Athletics.

Today, Spartan Nation publisher Hondo S. Carpenter, Sr., and Spartan Nation senior writer Jon Schopp discuss what's next for MSU football. 

Entering the 2021 NFL Draft, Michigan State featured three prospects in cornerback Shakur Brown, defensive tackle Naquan Jones, and linebacker Antjuan Simmons. 

Brown was the most likely candidate to be selected by a pro team but to no avail. For the first time in eight decades, the Spartans didn't have a single-player taken in the draft. 

However, Brown signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers as an undrafted free agent, and Jones landed in Tennessee, continuing a trend of Spartans becoming Titans, also as a UDFA. 

In this week's episode, we recap MSU's draft woes and much more:

  • NFL Draft recap
  • Michigan State's 80-year streak coming to an end
  • Is this the final nail in Mark Dantonio's legacy?
  • The Spartans draft prospects 
  • What happened with Shakur Brown?
  • Where does Mel Tucker go from here?
