 Draft Scout College Football Player News

  If any Iowa State football player has grown more than the Florida native, please provide examples. Between his freshman and sophomore seasons, Iowa State coach Matt Campbell even said "it looked like he had a tire under his tummy. Now, he looks like a statue of what a defensive end should look like - the tire's gone." Campbell relayed that at last year's Big 12 Media Days - and Bailey didn't disagree with that assessment. "I was probably 20 pounds overweight," he said, shaking his head in bewilderment that he'd even let his body go that way. "I didn't take my nutrition seriously until after my freshman year." Bailey starts the season with 18 1/2 sacks - the same way he started the last time he prepared for a season-opening game. He played all right against Northern Iowa, Iowa and Lousiana-Monroe.

He went down in the conference opener at Baylor - his 37th career start in a row. And now he's back, full throttle and ready to finally own that record outright. "He's come back in the best shape I've seen him in; he's in the best shape of his life," Campbell said last week. "He worked tremendously hard over the last three months while he was at home in Jacksonville." He's added muscle and structure to his 6-foot-2, 261-pound frame. He's got a fresh outlook after missing the last nine games of 2019 and the 2020 spring. He's way removed and far more mature than the JaQuan Bailey who made a boneheaded play against Texas when he was a sophomore. "I will never, ever forget that play," Bailey told me last season. "A lot has happened since then. I'm a totally a different person. I'm a totally a different player." - Des Moines Register
