  Draft Scout by Conference

  08/18/22 - WR Devaughn VelerJr/2025, Utah

  In late July, before former Utah star Britain Covey traveled to Philadelphia for training camp with the Eagles, he stopped by the Utes' campus to work out with some current Utah players. Wide receiver Devaughn Vele took the opportunity to talk to Covey about playing at the next level. While Vele is locked in on the upcoming season with the Utes, he is hoping to launch his own NFL career someday. "I asked him a few pointers about the difference between the NFL and college football. He gave me a lot of good pointers," Vele said of Covey. "The biggest thing is understanding that we think that NFL players don't make mistakes. But they do. Their understanding of the game heightens more. They study film all the time. They know your tendencies. That's what they exploit when they're playing against you. "This is most possibly my last season but I'm also looking at the future, what I can contribute if I make it to the NFL. I've been working on my craft, little things. Instead of just having that one-foot tap-in for sideline catches, I'm practicing having two feet in. Things like that to heighten my game to not only help my team out but to also prepare me for the next level."

During his time at Utah, Covey caught 184 passes for 2,011 yards and 11 touchdowns. He also ran for 300 yards and accumulated 1,092 yards on punt returns, with four touchdowns, and 838 yards in kick returns, and one TD. Covey is supportive of his former teammates, like Vele, and he continues to try to help them. "Covey has a lot of faith in me. He told me that I can definitely play in the NFL. To hear that from a guy that's balling out in the NFL himself, it means a lot to me," Vele said. "The leadership that he had will always stay with me. I'm wishing him the best but I'm not worried about him. I know he's going to ball out. "But he's definitely helped me out a lot this offseason, texting me and talking to me," he continued. "I've been watching his film to help me with releasing and running my routes. If you can pick the mind of a pro athlete like NFL players, and (apply) that, you can be a very successful player." - Deseret News
