 Draft Scout College Football Player News

  The coaching staff challenged Overton to get stronger over the summer, and he gained eight pounds while also becoming a better all-around football player. "I worked on my route running, had to get a little faster being that I had to be in the slot. So I had to just work on my craft and start making it more serious," Overton said. "This is definitely a money year. This is my last year. I didn't redshirt my freshman year, so it's all business from here on out. Gotta treat it like business and have the right mindset."

When starting slot receiver Amari Rodgers went down with an injury in the spring, it opened a door for someone else to step into the starting lineup alongside Justyn Ross and Tee Higgins. Overton appears to be the guy ready to fill in for Rodgers thanks to a strong spring, summer and start to fall camp. "He's been great. I'm super proud of him," Tigers coach Dabo Swinney said. "He's become one of our best leaders, incredibly committed to this program. And, you know, we've moved him over to the slot and I'm telling you, he's loving it. He's having a ball. "He's a very intelligent player, and he's just so much stronger. He's done an awesome job with his body. And he's playing with a lot of confidence." - The State
