BYU has become a bit of a pipeline for the Detroit Lions over the past few years, as the team has selected former Cougars Ziggy Ansah and Kyle Van Noy in the NFL Draft.
According to a story Monday by Justin Rogers of MLive in Michigan, the Lions could continue the trend in 2016, as they recently met with defensive end Bronson Kaufusi at the NFL scouting combine.
"It'd be fun to play with those guys again," Kaufusi said. "We had a good time in 2012 playing together."
Deion Sanders praises SUU safety Miles Killebrew
Playing at Southern Utah University, Miles Killebrew didn't receive a whole lot of attention, but at the scouting combine, the safety got an endorsement from NFL Hall of Famer Deion Sanders.
In a video from the combine, Sanders and NFL Draft analyst Mike Mayock spend some time discussing Killebrew, along with showing some of his highlights, and Sanders says, "Look, I don't care what he runs (in the 40-yard dash). You gotta give that kid a shot, man. Oh my goodness."
Added Mayock: "Every tape I watched, guys were bouncing backwards. Every tape I put on, guys were just bouncing the other way. All of them were like that. Everything."
Marshawn Lynch raps while riding a camel in Egypt
While former Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch was quite cryptic in announcing his retirement from the NFL, posting a tweet during the Super Bowl that conveyed he'd be "hanging up his cleats," he was certainly at the center of attention in a video posted on the Seahawks' Twitter account Monday.
Lynch is in Egypt as part of the American Football Without Barriers program, and was filmed freestyle rapping while riding a camel.
