A lot of you all have been asking about running back Jacquizz Rodgers.
I caught up with his uncle Rodney Williams yesterday and he’s going to have Quizz give us a call. (So, we should have a longer blog with Quizz real soon.)
Uncle Williams was happy to report that Quizz was back in class hitting the books. They are on quarters at Oregon State and he wasn’t done until the middle of June.
We chatted for a little while. I told Uncle Williams that the interest about his nephew was pretty high.
I also had him confirm that Rodgers’ lone fumble in college was on a pass that was officially ruled a lateral.
The Falcons traded away their fifth round pick (158th overall) and one of their seventh round picks (229) to move up 13 spots to select Rodgers on draft day.
Here’s what Rodgers had to say after the draft. Click HERE!
