Wow. This really makes me feel good about not selecting him.
I love the game of football. I play every chance I can. I trained for Law School Intramural football. If I had a chance to go to the NFL, I'd do everything in my power to get there. I sat next to a guy on a plane who played backup CB for the Ravens they year they won the SB. He was flying to Detroit to try out for them, and then to like 5-6 other teams after that.
Not being drafted isn't a reason to give up. This sounds like either (1) a guy pushed into football by his father whose heart wasn't in it, or (2) a guy discouraged by injuries.
