Earlier this week, ESPN's Mel Kiper told the Richmond Times-Dispatch that Sidbury Jr. has a chance to be a second round pick.
If that happens, Sidbury earns himself at least a couple more million than he would have made if he gets drafted late on Sunday.
"I knew coming from Richmond, I had to do something extraordinary to put myself in the position to maybe get called on the first day," Sidbury Jr. told us. "When you come from where I came from, you have to shock everyone."
Aside from picking on the school he went to, Sidbury Jr. said the doubts of his ability came throughout the entire process. He said he didn't worry about it. He just did something about it.
"They said I wasn't fast enough, I had the fastest time," Sidbury Jr. said. "They said I was weak, well, look what I did on the bench press."
Sidbury Jr. said he'll be spending tomorrow at his home in Maryland. He says he's making it Appreciation Day, as he's invited all the coaches who have helped him along the way.
Since we're all about hard work, here's to hoping Sidbury Jr. makes that amazing five round leap tomorrow.
