ESPN’s ‘Draft Academy’ to Feature Former NDSU Running Back John Crockett
Draft Academy, the ESPN series which gives viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the lives of top NFL prospects, will return for a second season in 2015 and feature former NDSU running back John Crockett.
The series, which will begin Tuesday, April 14th, at 6pm CST, will also feature former Heisman Trophy winner and projected number one pick Jameis Winston, 2014 Doak Walker Award winner Melvin Gordon, and 2014 SEC Defensive Player of the Year Shane Ray.
The April 14th premiere will introduce viewers to the players, while subsequent episodes will feature different parts of the draft process, including the NFL Combine, according to GoBison.com.
Crockett ran for over 4,000 yards during his collegiate career at NDSU. He is one of many NFL hopefuls hoping to hear their name called at this year's NFL Draft.
