The Road to the NFL: Jack Corcoran's Draft Blog #3
Written by Jack Corcoran on 02/13/2010
Training isn't supposed to be fun. The drills we are doing here in Atlanta are designed to make me faster and stronger. The funny thing is when I tell people I'm in Atlanta they think I am down here hanging out. Heck, I hardly even leave my apartment.
The interesting thing about training is how close I've gotten with my training mates. The other guys who are training here are Mike Caussin, a tight end who played at James Madison, and DeJuane Collins, the running back from University of Toledo. They are good guys and we all are represented by the same agent, Rob Roche of RSR Sports. I've really grown close to those guys since we've started training.
I had heard from some of my teammates at Rutgers who went to the NFL that when you train for your workouts you meet up and work closely with guys from different schools. It's a real diverse part of the draft process and I don't think too many fans are aware how much social interaction you have with your training partners. I had no idea how much time I'd spend with Mike and DeJuane. Trust me when I tell you that we've spent a lot of time together.
I also really didn't have any idea what to expect when Rob told me he was sending me to Atlanta to train. I knew I was going to work on getting faster and improve my strength, but I had no idea what methods I would be using to reach my goals. Since I've been training I can tell that I am getting faster. I really can't wait to see what I run at my pro-timing day at Rutgers in March.
Other than training and hanging with Mike and DeJuane the only thing I've been doing is talking with my friends and family back in New Jersey. They've filled me in on how much snow they got, but the funny thing is we got a little snow here in Atlanta last week. For a split second I felt like I was back at Rutgers.
