The 2017 NFL Draft is coming at us quickly. The yearly extravaganza will take place in Philadelphia from Thursday, April 27 to Saturday, April 29 this year.
Over the span of three days, a whole host of former college football stars will find new homes where they will hopefully impress during the offseason and make a living playing on Sundays.
This video from Just Bombs Productions looks at a cornerback whose exceptional combination of size and speed is intriguing to the NFL scouts. Ahkello Witherspoon is a 6-foot-3 speedster out of Colorado and his ability to match-up size with the big receivers in the NFL will see him drafted earlier than his current skill set would suggest.
Witherspoon will need to put more strength on his body given that he is more gangly than athletic at this point. Having played just one season of high school football (he was 5-foot-8 when he graduated) his skills will improve at the NFL level.
