 Draft Scout College Football Player News

  As defensive back KJ Sails went through the most important workout of his life Thursday during USF's pro day, an NFL scout stopped him with an odd-sounding request. He wanted to find out more about the governor. "It was kind of funny," Sails said. "I didn't really think that they did their research about that type of stuff on me." Sails, of course, is not the governor. The East Bay High alumnus merely spent a day as Tampa's honorary mayor in February. But as pro teams continue their research about the NFL hopeful ahead of this month's draft, they'll discover an impressive player who will make an impact far beyond any locker room.

Sails' onfield influence was strong enough during his two seasons at USF. After arriving as a transfer from North Carolina in 2019, he started 20 games for the Bulls and was one of their bright spots during a rough stretch. He earned second-team all-conference honors as a junior and would have participated in an all-star showcase or two this offseason, had they not been cancelled because of the pandemic. His impression on the community was equally notable. Amid the nationwide unrest after George Floyd's death over the summer, Sails organized a unity walk from downtown Tampa to Central Park Village. Mayor Jane Castor became his mentor and awarded him the key to the city. "I'm thankful to impact my community, because this community means a lot to me," Sails said. "I grew up here. I was born and raised here. A lot of my family's from here. It's a blessing." - Tampa Tribune
