  Draft Scout by Conference

  If you saw Coastal Carolina junior cornerback D'Jordan Strong during the team's break from football activities due to the coronavirus in the spring and early summer, chances are he was carrying and tossing a football. Strong joined the Chanticleers from Northeast Mississippi Community College in January, in time for CCU's early spring practices in February and early March. During those sessions, defensive backs coach Bryant Foster was impressed with Strong's ability to cover wide receivers, and he also noted that Strong was dropping the ball a lot. Strong had just one interception in two years of JUCO football - though he notes he had a 100-yard interception return negated by a penalty - while playing predominantly single man-to-man coverage.

"I used to drop a lot of balls in the spring, and coach Foster texted me when coronavirus was going on big-time and said, 'Hey man, don't think I'm being funny, but you get you a football and just walk around and throw it in the air and catch it and see how it feels. Man, you could lead the conference in interceptions this season and be a first-team Sun Belt cornerback because you've got the ability to do it. If you just do this one little thing you've got potential to be something,' " Strong recalled. "That's what I did, and now I've got five interceptions and that's crazy because coach Foster called it." - Myrtle Beach Online
