    He played football for BYU and right now, that's the closest thing to an NFL team in Utah. ;)

    Detroit is pretty close to Utah isn't it?

    @ Chris B

    And yet the people that evaluate talent and spend their millions of dollars on players think enough of his skills to draft him as one of the top players in the country. Might explain why you do what you do for a living, and they make millions a year managing a football franchise.

    Funny how he could play against the best talent in the country at the Senior Bowl and be selected as the MVP, and yet according to you, be nothing more than a novelty / project. My guess is he will have a more distinguished career, and receive more personal accolades than Star. We'll see how it all works out.

    I served my mission in Africa and i can not tell you how excited i am to see a native African earning so much attention as a football player. I really hope he does well and brings a lot of attention to Africa. Those people all have the potential that Ziggy does, it is just untapped. Go Ziggy! work hard and earn you way into the hall of fame.
