NFL Pre-Draft Interview: Jake Holland
Well, before we know it spring training will be upon us and off to the races we go again heading into another season of college football. I believe we’ll be very talented this fall and deeper depth- wise. I know for sure that being in the second year in both offensive and defensive systems is going to help us. That, plus a returning QB for the 1st time in several years and great depth along the defensive front – which are the two areas you must have good play from to win in this league consistently. I am also enjoying following our baseball team at the moment and look forward to seeing how they progress in Coach Golloway’s first season at the helm.
Jake recently did an interview with Joseph Lisi (formerly with ESPN/ABC) and Corey Allen (former UGA Bulldog) for their website, GoForThe2.com. Before you check it out if you feel so inclined, be mindful that we are under no false illusion as to his draft status. He won’t get drafted and we know that. However, he is working earnestly to try and earn a shot in camp as a free agent. Jake is and has been a bit of long shot but he recently helped himself with a very good performance in The College All-Star Bowl where led the American team in tackles and a very solid pro day with consistent numbers across the board. His pro day results compared nicely to the those posted by all the ILB’s at the NFL Combine. His 4.70 – 40 would’ve tied him for 3rd fastest among ILB’s.
Here’s the link to the interview. We did not know these guys nor have any influence on how they represented the information. I thought they did a nice job on the blog radio interview:
