 Draft Scout College Football Player News


  As gyms close around Memphis to limit the spread of the coronavirus, Antonio Gibson is on a daily mission: Find a place to work out for the NFL Draft. Some days, it's the Memphis practice field at the Billy J. Murphy Complex. This week, it was Tom Lee Park where the former Tigers wide receiver found a sand pit and worked out with teammates. "When I was younger, we always played in the backyard or the streets," Gibson said. "It was easier than this because it's more complicated. You just have to adapt." This is life now for Gibson and his former Memphis teammate Patrick Taylor Jr. How do you continue getting ready for April's draft when you can't use a facility or travel to meet with teams?

Taylor's path became trickier after undergoing foot surgery on March 10 for an injury that caused him to miss eight games last season. He said he'll be out 4-6 months as he continues to rehab back home in Houston. However, he wasn't worried about the surgery affecting his draft stock. "I feel like I did all that I can do at the combine and I was able to show that I was capable of catching the ball out of the backfield and showing my speed while being hurt," said Taylor, who ran the 40-yard dash in 4.57 seconds. - Memphis Commercial Appeal
