Live From Indy: Meet The Athletes

We got a chance to chat with some of football’s top draft prospects as they went through their workouts and testing in Indy. Here are some of the highlights:

Evan Engram, Mississippi TE

His Time At Ole Miss

“It helped me grow a lot. I came in as part of a great recruiting class, and we really pushed each other. The guys and the coaches set a standard for us, and we just got better each and every day. Without all of them, I wouldn’t be in the position I am today.”

Advice To High School Athletes

“The biggest thing I learned right out of high school was to not get caught up in every recruit’s ranking. You hear about all these 5-star, 4-star guys, but none of that matters when you step on campus. A 2-star recruit will have the same opportunity that a 5-star does. So, just block all that noise out. Find a part of your game every day that you can get better at, outwork your competition, and surround yourself with good people.”

Marcus Maye, Florida S

The Florida DB Brotherhood

“Vernon Hargreaves, Keanu Neal, Brian Poole: I talk to those guys all the time. They all just had their rookie seasons, so they’ve been giving me a lot of tips and advice. We’ve been good friends since high school, and to this day, we can call each other up and still talk about whatever.”

What Type Of Player He Is

“A competitor. A guy who is willing to do whatever needs to get done. I’ll be a great locker room guy. I’m ready to play ball and listen and learn.”

Ryan Ramczyk, Wisconsin OT

Biggest Difference Between DIII (UW-Stevens Point) and DI Football (Wisconsin)

“Probably the speed of the game. When I first got to Wisconsin, the first snap I took, I was like, ‘Whoa, everything is moving so fast and the play is already over.’ It took a couple of weeks to catch up, settle down, and get used to it. You really had to settle your brain down and not try to take in everything that’s going on at once.”

Eating Regimen At Madison

“I was on a program where I tried to get about 7000 calories a day, especially during practice because it just takes it right out of you. It’s hard to eat that much, but they guided us on what to eat, and it was really helpful.”

Ethan Cooper, Indiana (PA) OL

From Indiana Penn To The Pros

“Being from a small school, I just always played my hardest. I made sure I dominated every game as much as I possibly could so I could separate myself and make my dream of playing in the pros become possible.”

Favorite Team Growing Up

“I’m a Philly fan but my entire family is Dallas fans. When those two play each other, it’s me vs. everybody back home! But obviously, I’ll be happy playing for any team.”
