San Diego State cornerback Damontae Kazee dropped by CBS Sports Radio on Thursday to discuss the upcoming NFL Draft, which will take place April 27-29 in Philadelphia.
Kazee, who had 15 interceptions in his final two collegiate seasons, is considered one of the most underrated prospects available.
Just don’t tell Kazee that.
“Honestly, I don’t feel like I’m underrated,” Kazee said on The DA Show. “They probably called me underrated because a lot of (analysts) project me to go like fourth or fifth round, third to sixth. But at the end of the day, I don’t care what round I go. It could be the last round, last pick. I’m still going to enjoy it. I’m going to celebrate like it’s the first round, first pick.”
Kazee believes he will adjust well to the NFL, in part because he played “every scheme” in college. And, despite his ball-hawking ability, he doesn’t believe that’s his best attribute.
“I would say my tackling and my aggressiveness in the run game is my No. 1 strength,” he said. “I love to stick my nose everywhere.”
