With a strong showing on Saturday, Iglesias, who’s currently the seventh-ranked wide receiver on Scout.com’s NFL Draft Rankings, could raise his stock and be in contention to be a high second-round selection.
“This is a childhood dream. And I’m out here shaking hands with kids and signing autographs, and I’m thinking, ‘I was you one day,’ ” he told Scout.com. “As the week goes on, reality is hitting, how close you are to a dream come true. So you just take it step by step, day by day.”
Jennings believes that as pro scouts and evaluators watch him up close here in Mobile, they’ll see that he has plenty to offer an NFL club.
“I’m a complete back who’s eager to learn, who’s physical and who’s just learning constantly,” he said. “Being able to stay on the field — whether it’s third-and-short, third-and-long, being able to catch the ball out of the backfield — there’s a lot of things that about my game that I know will make me successful at the next level.”
Robiskie, who’s father Terry is the wide receivers coach for the Atlanta Falcons, said he enjoys watching Roddy White and Michael Jenkins each week. But he also has some other favorite receivers around the league who he watches to help improve his game.
“Larry Fitzgerald is another one who is having a great postseason. They just made it to the Super Bowl, so he’s doing a lot for that team,” Robiskie said. “There’s a long list, Terrell Owens — what he does on the field — there are a number of guys I watch and just try to take a little bit from everybody. But I definitely enjoy watching the game and studying other receivers.”
“I had confidence coming into this week, and I knew that I would be facing the top centers in the nation, and I wanted to show what I could do,” Raji said. “I felt like I’ve been getting better each day, and with this being the last day in full pads, I thought I had my best performance.”
While practicing this week, and eventually airing it out in Saturday’s game, Wilson is hoping to show NFL scouts more than just what they’ve already seen on film.
“I want to show them my leadership both in and out of the huddle. And that means getting guys going, making plays and being a Winner,” he said.
