Long Shot: The Kyle Dugger Story

Not only that, but Dugger was New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick’s first draft pick of the post-Tom Brady era.This podcast explores how Dugger went from an undersized freshman running back just trying to make his high school varsity roster to a dominant safety winning the Cliff Harris Award and shining star at the Senior Bowl and NFL Combine.Locked On Presents: Long Shot – The Kyle Dugger Story also gives you an inside look at the NFL draft process from the perspective of the ultimate underdog who beat the system.Written, voiced, sound design, and edited by Cole Weinstein.  Learn more about your ad choices.
