From Undrafted to Untouchable: Michigan Panthers Cole Murphy Proving He Has What It Takes

UTSA Roadrunners in the USFL: Joshua Dunlop

Beginning this week, we’ll be taking a closer look at the former athletes from the University of Texas, San Antonio (UTSA) currently playing in the United States Football League (USFL).

Leading things off for the Roadrunners is 25-year-old Joshua Dunlop, who was selected by the Michigan Panthers in the 7th round of the 2022 USFL Draft.

Prior to attending UTSA, the 6-foot-7, 315-pound offensive tackle started his collegiate career as a redshirt freshman at Dodge City Community College (Kansas) in 2016.

As a sophomore at UTSA in 2017, Dunlop appeared in all 11 games (starting seven) at left tackle for the Roadrunners; in 2018, he started in all 12 games on the offensive line (five at right guard and seven at right tackle).

Dunlop started all 12 contests his senior year for UTSA in 2019 as the team’s right tackle. He was also named Honorable Mention All-Conference USA on the offensive line.

In his three years as part of the Roadrunners football program, Dunlop started 31 of 35 games.

Bringing us to the 2022 USFL season, where thus far for the Panthers, Dunlop has played in eight games (starting three) as an offensive tackle.

Fun facts: Dunlop is a former Zionsville Community High School (Indiana) offensive lineman who briefly spent some time with the Los Angeles Chargers practice squad after going undrafted in the NFL Draft. He was signed by the Chargers 25 minutes after the 2020 NFL Draft concluded on April 25.

Due up next for Dunlop and the Michigan Panthers (1-8, 3rd place in North): a season finale battle against the Pittsburgh Maulers (1-8, 4th place in North) on Sunday, June 19 at 11 am Central Time on USA.
