Juaquin Spills on NFL Draft
The campus newspaper of the University of Oklahoma, the Oklahoma Daily, recently sat down with former OU wide receiver Juaquin Iglesias and asked about his thoughts on the upcoming NFL Draft.
Iglesias first arrived to play for the Oklahoma Sooners in 2005, his first home game being one of only two games that Bob Stoops has lost at home under his career at Oklahoma, when the Sooners fell to the Texas Christian University Horned Frogs. However, his last home game saw a romping of the Texas Tech Red Raiders three years later in 2008, 65-21, arguably thew greatest home game of the season.
In his time as a Sooner, Iglesias has racked up 202 receptions for 2,821 receiving yards, both records ranked second all-time in Oklahoma football history.
Iglesias was reported saying he is very excited about ending the process and bringing everything to a close, finding out where he's going to go in the NFL.
He says he has been working on his releases, his sharpness and routes and his overall mental aspect concerning the game to become better on and off the football field.
So far Iglesias said he has had correspondence with the Minnesota Vikings, the Seattle Seahwaks, and has even worked out with the Chicago Bears. However, Iglesias it would be a dream come true to play for the team he watched all while he was growing up, the Dallas Cowboys.
Iglesias says he'll be spending time with his family and loved ones when the NFL draft is released on Saturday.
