D.J. Humphries the former Florida Gators offensive lineman is happy he did not listen to the NFL Draft Advisory Board in December, because when he made the call he was told to stay in school. It’s a good thing Humphries didn’t listen because now he’s regarded as a first-round pick and his draft stock continues to rise. ESPN analysts Mel Kiper and Todd McShay have Humphries going 25th to the Carolina Panthers and 28th to the Denver Broncos, respectively, in their latest mock drafts. In a interview with ESPN, D.J. talked about the process.
“It’s been awesome,” said Humphries, who started 19 games for the Gators from 2012 to 2014. “It’s been an amazing experience, coming from being told I need to go back to school to being projected [in] the first round. That was my goal, to be honest. It was what I was trying to do so it’s amazing to set goals and accomplish them.”
Humphries has been very lucky because he has weight concerns. He has trouble keeping up weight, so that could hurt him.
