NFL Draft Zone:
The New York native K.J. Stroud was once a member of the Rutgers football team coached by Greg Schiano, but after a short hiatus he is back in New York. Both Stroud and Eddie Poole left the University and transferred to Bethune-Cookman in Daytona Beach, Florida. In his first year Stroud excelled as a pass wide receiver. In his senior year, the stats seemed to drop off, but not because he wasn’t playing, but more because the team went to a run first offense. After a decent senior year, Stroud knew he would have to do something to put himself on the map. Stroud was able to get into the Rutgers pro day and the Regional Combine in New York, which ultimately was what lifted him up to the NFL level. K.J. always had the talent to play in the NFL, but it was about getting exposure again. Now that he is back in NY, he is happy. Check out our interview with K.J. below:

After going on injured reserve late in 2012 Ben Obomanu probably knew his time in Seattle would be coming to an end. It was mostly due to the fact his salary for 2013 was 2.3 million dollars. But Obomanu has been productive as a receiver, catching 67 passes from 2010-11, and should serve as immediate depth for a WR corp lacking quality options. Obomanu can also play special teams...
