Kendall Sheffield will get his opportunity to demonstrate his speed and aptitudes to NFL scouts before one month from now's NFL draft.
In the wake of persevering through a mostly torn pectoral muscle in the press at the NFL Scouting Combine, shielding him from checking out on-field practices at both the combine and seven days back's Ohio State day, Sheffield will be sufficiently strong to encounter a pre-draft practice for NFL scouts at Ohio State on April 11 – just two weeks before the first round of the NFL draft – according to a report by NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
While Sheffield's own activity likely won't move nearly the swarm of NFL capacity evaluators that went to seven days back's day, any team that is really considering drafting him will presumably send an agent to Columbus to see how the corner-back has recovered from his harm and precisely how snappy he is.
Sheffield consumed two seasons at Ohio State in the wake of moving from Blinn Community College. Leaving school in Missouri, Texas, Sheffield was a five-star player and went with Alabama. He experienced one season with the Crimson Tide in 2015 anyway did not play and after that moved to Blinn. Sheffield was recorded as the top junior school cornerback in the country in the 2017 class according to the a recruiting composite.
Playing at Ohio State
At the point when a Buckeye, Sheffield promptly worked his way into his turn at corner with Denzel Ward and Damon Arnette. In that first season, Sheffield played in all of the 14 matches for the Scarlet and Gray and finished the season with 40 total take-downs. After Ward announced for the NFL Draft, Sheffield was one of the top corners on the chart for Ohio State in 2018. The season did not go similarly not surprisingly in any case, as the Buckeyes allowed more than 245 yards for every match through the air. Sheffield finished the season with 35 hard and fast tackles, two for a setback and two catches in 14 games.
Sheffield is seen as one of the speediest players in the 2019 NFL draft – as displayed by his record-breaking spell on Ohio State's indoor track gathering – and now he'll get the chance to moreover show it by running the 40-yard dash and encountering other athletic tests similarly as position drills.
