  Draft Scout by Conference

  Over the past six months, since the incident that briefly derailed his college football career, Jayden de Laura probably felt like he was in no position to turn down advice and knowledge from those with more wisdom and life experience than Washington State's 19-year-old quarterback. De Laura's elders have played a role, certainly, but it was someone who's celebrated fewer birthdays than even de Laura who delivered the message that really hit home. At some point while de Laura served a four-month suspension from WSU's football team after being arrested in February on suspicion of driving under the influence - a charge Whitman County District Court found him not guilty of last week - the quarterback heard from his high school-age brother, an aspiring college receiver entering his junior year at Honolulu's Saint Louis.

Jaysen de Laura's words - or maybe it was the courage he showed to address the topic at all with an older sibling - left a surprising imprint on Jayden. "For me I would say (the conversation) with my brother," de Laura said Friday when asked to recall a meaningful conversation from the past six months. "He kind of told me like, what am I doing? He kind of told me I was wasting my time." For the first time since WSU's season-ending loss at Utah in December, de Laura was back on the field taking snaps and slinging passes in the No. 4 jersey, as one of three QBs in a race to win the Cougars' starting job along with returning backup Cammon Cooper and Tennessee graduate transfer Jarrett Guarantano. - Seattle Times
