ESPN’s Jon Gruden‘s annual “QB Camp” series brings the top quarterbacks in the NFL Draft to the network for a film session and some of Gruden’s trademark weirdness.
Brad Kaaya, you’re up.
ESPN posted two videos with Gruden, the former Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach, and the former Hurricanes quarterback. First, Gruden asks Kaaya about his first college start, when Louisville smacked him around in a Sept. 1, 2014 loss.
“This is a tough way to start,” he said. “But I learned a lot. I knew there would be times were I’d have to take shots and I wasn’t going to feel great. But at the end of the day, this ‘U’ means a lot more than my body, than someone else’s body, than anyone else around me.
In another installment, Gruden seems ready to grill Kaaya about Miami’s 2015 loss to Cincinnati — the game that, if we may editorialize a little, accelerated Al Golden‘s firing — but winds up suggesting old music for him to listen to.
CBS Sports projects Kaaya to be a third- or fourth-round pick.
In the latest mock draft by ESPN’s Todd McShay, former UM tight end David Njoku went No. 19 overall to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
