Default The Story of Willie Jefferson OLB SFA

He's just now making his name known in OTA's because during 7 on 7's he did his best JJ Watt impression and snagged the ball out of the air at the line of scrimmage and returned it for a TD.

Now...how he ended up a Houston Texan..

Quote:
In October 2010, Gordon and teammate Willie Jefferson were arrested after they fell asleep in a drive-through line at a Taco Bell. Police found marijuana in Jefferson’s car. Jefferson, who was driving, was kicked off the team because it was his second violation.

Jefferson transferred to Stephen F. Austin, switched to defense and became an All-America defensive end and legitimate NFL prospect.
I like to see the Texans giving someone a chance even if they might have a slight police record. It wasn't thuggish, he wasn't robbing someone, he just smoked a little something and got caught. Kids do it.

Now thanks to @JaysonBraddock , he had some inside info on Willie Jefferson and he could be one to keep your eyes on in the preseason.

Quote:
Jefferson went to Baylor as a 6'5 WR and then switched to TE. After going to SFA, he had all new beginnings & moved over to the defense.
Quote:
Willie Jefferson's 1st year at SFA & playing defense, he had an eye popping 15 sacks, 15 TFLs, 2 INTs returned for TDs, & three 2 pt conv
Quote:
Did I mention he had a 38" vertical or that he won the Golden Gloves as a Junior Heavyweight. How about him being a track & basketball star?
Quote:
Let's throw in gymnastics for good measure. His experience as a WR led to quick get off & sharp cuts around the edges as a pass rusher.
Quote:
Jefferson set the record for sacks in a game with 4.5, then came back and broke that with 5.
Quote:
Going back to the slender 6'5 kid I saw yesterday. Initial thought was, WOW, these are some of the most violent arms, but he's too slim.
Quote:
I asked Willie today about his weight. He came in at 6'5 233 lbs, but today he said he's already bulked up to 240 w/ plans to be 255 soon
Quote:
I asked Willie, how is that he has more violent arms then fellow rookies, Sam Montgomery & Trevardo Williams, coming from SFA?
Quote:
Jefferson said he wanted to show coaches that his hands were real violent & knew that w/ him being undersized he had to do something special
Quote:
Willie said he needs coaches to see something in him that they don't see in anybody else.
Quote:
Willie Jefferson said his background as a WR & TE have helped him develop stellar hands and footwork. Very quick hands & fast feet.
Quote:
It's only May and he has along way to go, but his back story and his development make this a guy to watch come July & August.
Consider me intrigued.
