  Draft Scout by Conference

  Back in early June, shortly after announcing plans to join the Ragin' Cajuns as a graduate transfer, former Arizona State offensive lineman Zach Robertson addressed why he left the Power 5 program and sat out what would have been his 2019 redshirt senior season. Details were scarce, but Robertson - who started multiple games for the Pac-12's Sun Devils, including nine in 2018 - was candid. "I was just battling a lot of things that were going on...and it took a huge toll on my mental health," he told The Daily Advertiser then. "I didn't know how to cope with it so I decided to step away from football for a year and get my mind back right."

Last week, Robertson - now the 3-0 Cajuns' starting left tackle - revealed much more and, in the process, made a plea for college football players facing circumstances similar to his own to keep mental health atop their priority list. "I went through a real lot of issues in … 2019," Robertson said. "I went through depression, anxiety. "Both of those things, you know, I mean...the way I was raised, it wasn't an emphasis to make sure those things are OK, your mental health is OK. "So, it got to the point where it overwhelmed me and I made wrong decisions and I faced the consequences," he added. "I had to sit out. I basically didn't know if I was ever going to play football again. And those two things scared the hell out of me." - Daily Advertiser
