Draft Scout Tyler Conklin News
03/21/18 - Two years ago, Kavon Frazier was making his case to professional football scouts on the turf of Central Michigan's Indoor Athletic Complex. Now as a safety for the Dallas Cowboys, the former Chippewa standout offered up some advice to friends and former teammates who were showcasing their skills in front of pro scouts on Friday at CMU's annual Pro Day. "Stay focused, keep putting in work," Frazier said. "Just stay calm, because this is the most stressful time of their life when it's after Pro Day and wondering what's going to happen next. Just stay off social media and keep on grinding."
Among the many former Chippewas participating in Friday's drills were tight end Tyler Conklin and defensive end Joe Ostman. Conklin, who despite early season injury, was the only Chippewa invited to the NFL combine in February. The 6-foot-4, 240-pounder appeared in seven games last season, catching 35 passes for 504 yards and five touchdowns. The former basketball player displayed a wide array of athletic skill that he employed to become one of the best tight ends in the Mid-American Conference. With the NFL draft looming and a variety of teams taking looks, Conklin said he is focused on pushing himself to keep getting better. "I've let my agent handle (draft talks) as far as what (teams) are thinking and saying," he said. "I'm just trying to keep participating and doing the best I can to help my stock." - CMUChippewas.com
