 Draft Scout College Football Player News

  The proof is rooted is in the same backfield they've shared for a few seasons now. Ragin' Cajun running backs can get their shot at the NFL if they play things right, and Elijah Mitchell and Trey Ragas - slated to get going when UL opens its 2020 season Sept. 12 at No. 25 Iowa State - need look no further than the very room from which they work to be reminded of that. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers selected their teammate, running back Raymond Calais Jr., out of UL in the seventh round of this year's NFL Draft. And in 2017, after Mitchell had finished his 2016 senior season at Erath High and Ragas was coming off a season in which he redshirted as a freshman at UL, the Jets drafted Elijah McGuire, who played two seasons with New York and spent last year on the practice squad of the Super Bowl-winning Kansas City Chiefs.

"Me and Eli, we talk about it all the time," Ragas, an Archbishop Shaw High product from New Orleans, said when asked about the inspiration he and Mitchell get from Calais. "That's somebody in our own room who got drafted. "Eli McGuire, he got drafted. It's showing us it's real - like we've got the power to reach the next level. And it's in our hands." In their heads, too. Because make no mistake: Ragas is not shy to admit that getting an NFL shot of their own is constantly on his and Mitchell's minds. "Just about every day we talk about it," he said. - Daily Advertiser
