In a way that only Jon Gruden could, former Ohio State CB Jeff Okudah got the highest of compliments from the Las Vegas Raiders coach when he met with the club at the NFL Scouting Combine this week.
"I'm talking football with Jon Gruden, and he says 'Hey man, are you from planet Earth?' " said Okudah, who is expected to be the first cornerback selected in the 2020 NFL Draft. "It's crazy to think about that because he's someone who's been around some great football minds. For him to say that, I was like (to myself) 'You're here, man.' "
Okudah indeed has arrived.
