It's one thing to have the tangible skills needed to perform at the NFL level. Based on his measurables, Terrell Watson has what it takes. But his running backs coach at Azusa Pacific says the Division II star also has the intangibles. His head coach, meanwhile, is hopeful Watson makes the NFL not just to fulfill a lifelong dream, but also because his strong character could use the platform of professional sports to make a broader positive impact on the world.
Part 2 of Terrell Watson's story in Football Diaries follows his efforts to impress scouts, stack up against Division I talent, and earn himself a spot in this week's NFL draft. (UPDATE: Watson was not drafted, but the Cincinnati Bengals signed him as a free agent.)
