  The word "adversity" gets thrown around a lot in NFL circles, especially this time of year. Teams want to know whether a draft prospect will stick with things when times get rough. Will he be a unifying force and positive impact on the locker room who helps turn around a losing streak? Or will he point fingers, shift blame and add to the problems? But adversity in the NFL - as important as it is on game day - is trivial. Yetur Gross-Matos has experienced some of the worst of the real-life version, and it motivates the former Penn State star.

When he was 2 years old, Gross-Matos fell into the water during a boating trip, and his biological father died in the act of saving him. Nearly nine years later, his older brother Chelal also died when he was struck by lightning on a baseball field. Teams looking for what Gross-Matos is made of can find all the information they need in his reaction to those two tragedies. "They just asked me about what's the hardest thing I ever went through," he said during last month's NFL Scouting Combine. "Obviously, for me, that was losing my older brother at a young age. And my dad. Just dealing with that. "I want to do something better for my family and my mother, and that's kind of how I approached it. That's the reality of it." - Herald Bulletin
