There are hundreds of stories being told during the planning and anticipation of the 2017 NFL Draft. Today we will be looking at a scouting report for senior wideout Dede Westbrook, Oklahoma Sooner.

Westbrook is an exciting playmaker, who comes with some serious baggage to be discussed a little later. He turned down an opportunity to play with Texas State to play for the small football school of Blinn College; where the receiver caught 76 passes for 1487 yards and 13 touchdowns.
