Northern Michigan’s Jake Witt has had the internet buzzing since working out at Central Michigan’s pro day on March 15. The basketball player turned tight end turned offensive tackle is still honing his technique, but NFL Scouts are fully aware of Witt's potential.

The Athletic’s Dane Brugler just wrote a fantastic article about the athletic 6’7”, 302-pounder, and now our own Mason West had a chance to talk with Witt about his interesting path to the NFL Draft.

Witt told us that the Chicago Bears were one of the first teams to reach out to him, well before his explosive pro day, and that he spoke with general manager Ryan Poles.
