 Draft Scout College Football Player News


  Though he's been surrounded by family and friends in Colorado, Alijah Halliburton has admittedly spent the better part of the past three weeks stuck inside the depths of his own head. Halliburton, the University of Wyoming's first team All-Mountain West safety, was hopeful he might hear his name called on the third day of the 2020 NFL draft in late April. Following a breakout senior season where he led all defensive backs nationally with a staggering 130 tackles and was named defensive MVP of the Arizona Bowl, Halliburton felt he had a shot at being selected in the sixth or seventh rounds. At the very least, he thought he would sign fairly quickly with a club as an undrafted free agent. It's been 18 days since the draft came and went, and Halliburton is still wondering what went wrong.

Were his stats not as meaningful as he thought? Was playing in the MW being held against him? Could he have done anything differently during the season and in the pre-draft process? And, perhaps most importantly: Was football still in the cards for him? "It went the worst way it could possibly go for me," Halliburton told WyoSports. "I've been questioning everything really, what to do with my life. Should I just move on?" Halliburton is staying ready if that phone call from the NFL comes, and he isn't expecting to be given a job. All he wants, he said, is a chance. And the fact he hasn't gotten one so far is what hurts the most. "I can't keep waiting for an opportunity," he said. "What's a tough pill to really swallow is not getting a shot … I've seen so much over the last four years." - Wyoming Tribune Eagle
