NFL teams likely have questions about cornerback Caleb Farley after he chose not to play for Virginia Tech last year and had back surgery last month, but they probably aren’t wondering. Her confidence.
Farley said last month he expected to be one of the best cornerbacks in the league and he showed similar bravado in an interview with Chris Simms this week. Farley said teams should know his back injury is “little risk for a huge payoff” and that they should think twice before selecting Patrick Surtain II, Jaycee Horn or any other cornerback ahead of him.
“But believe the best, any team that takes a corner on me, you know I’m a dog,” Farley said. “This will scare me. It will scare me. I’m gonna try to make them like Randy Moss did them, you know, when they let him down. I’ll try to go all the way up to the end zone with the ball in my hands and point my back when I get there. He’s the kind of guy I am. I’ll be dressed this fall and can’t wait.
Moss finished 21st in the 1998 draft and most of the teams that picked the top 20 had reason to regret that decision. We’ll see if Farley gets the same kind of motivation later this month.
