ALBUQUERQUE N.M. (KRQE) - Former Lobo Kicker, Jason Sanders is now hoping that his talents with his leg can get him to the next level. The NFL Draft is coming up on April 26, and while Jason knows kickers usually don't get picked up in the draft he still has high hopes at playing at the next level.http://www.krqe.com/sports/local-sports ... 1092574909
"I got told by a team that, you know the reality is the 7th round or free agency you know which I think is the reality. My biggest thing is, I hope I get a call in the 7th round saying, look we might not draft you but we want you to come in", said Sanders.
Sanders has had workouts with the Dolphins and the Jets and still has two more workouts planned with the Chargers and Rams. Sanders says if he doesn't make a roster this upcoming year he will still put in the work to hopefully make a team later. For Jason, just the aspect of being in the NFL seems a little crazy to Sanders considering where he came from.
"I was a big soccer guy growing up, I grew up in a soccer family, so my whole life I played soccer and football wasn't really there. So, now you think about where I am at now its kind of crazy how it all falls together and what you have accomplished", said Sanders.
