They Said It On Glenn Clark Radio: Local NFL Draft Prospects

March 15, 2019
2019 NFL Draft prospects with local ties joined Glenn Clark Radio recently to discuss their path to the draft. Here's what they had to say.

"Just the thought of being able to play for a team that I've cheered for my entire life, I think that's incredible. It would be kinda crazy for everything to go full circle like that."
- Baltimore native and former Iowa State receiver Hakeem Butler Feb. 19 on the possibility of being drafted by the Ravens

"I used to write notes in my Bible and pray to God. I'm like, ‘What's going on?' And it wasn't happening at that moment -- those two or three years I was at Auburn -- but I come to Maryland and I hit the ground running, and now everything's starting to pick up for me. Anybody I meet I tell them, ‘Keep fighting. It might not look good right now, but just keep fighting. Stick to your routine and just stay positive even though it's hard.'"
- Former Maryland defensive end Byron Cowart Jan. 30 on being the No. 1 recruit in the country in high school to struggling at Auburn to getting back on an NFL path with the Terps

"I just try to make sure I put a smile on my daughter's face even though she doesn't really know what's going on every day. That would be my biggest, biggest goal is to make sure my daughter doesn't have to worry about nothing a day in her life. I'll break my ankles, whatever the case might be, that's for her. … That's my motivation every day."
- Former Maryland offensive tackle Derwin Gray Jan. 17 on how his young daughter, Kali, has impacted his pursuit of his NFL dream

"I've always felt like I've done well with dealing with adversity. Just everything that we've been through as far as at Maryland this past season -- and really this past year -- I think it's definitely helped us grow as people. We just try to do our best to stay positive and keep our mind on the goal."
- Former Maryland safety Darnell Savage Jr. Jan. 21 on what he learned from the adversity of his senior season
