Former Air Force Football Standouts Return for Pro Day

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. Two years ago, Air Force wide receiver Jalen Robinette was one to watch for the 2017 NFL Draft. But a change in policy changed those projections for him and a few of his teammates.

"It's hard, knowing you were right there, knowing the door was open and I don't want to say it was closed in your face but you were told to wait a little bit." said former Defensive End and Linebacker Ryan Watson.

After two years of service as officers in the Air Force, they are back in Colorado Springs for their 2nd NFL Pro Day and a second chance.

"I'm getting a lot more sleep, eating better, I think I'm in a better place than I was two years ago." said Robinette.

"For everything you could say about taking two years off could be bad, you could also think of stuff that it's good for. Our bodies feel good and things like that. It was good to get out there and we will see how it comes back." said Weston Steelhammer.

The former Falcons won't be eligible for the draft this time around but they can be signed as free agents.
