2010 Scouting Report: John Destin, CB, Tulsa

Ok guys, I'm determined to write a scouting report for at least one person who is actually drafted by the Jaguars. Last year Surteal did a report on Jarett Dillard and we all whiffed on everyone else. My newest strategy is to write scouting reports for players that the Jaguars have either showed interest in, or held personal workouts with. With that said, Tulsa cornerback John Destin is reportedly scheduled to have a private meeting with the Jaguars.

John Destin's story is a rags to riches story that leaves you with no choice, but to pull for him. Originally from Belle Glades, Florida, Destin graduated from high school receiving no interest from any colleges. Without the money to afford a college tuition, he was forced to take a job bagging groceries while still not giving up on his dream of being a football player and a college graduate. After a year and a half away from football, Destin finally found a spot on a junior college team and played a season. 

Still not giving up on his dream of the big stage, Destin put together a highlight tape on Youtube and sent it to 119 division I schools. He received a scholarship from one school, the University of Tulsa. Now just 3 years later, John Destin is speaking with NFL teams about a possible career in football. Namely the Jacksonville Jaguars.

 In his three seasons at Tulsa, Destin saw playing time in all 42 of his games, starting in 20. At 6'0, 195 pounds, Destin is a very physical corner that has average speed, 4.50 40 yard dash, who loves to jam his opposing receivers off the line. In transition to the next level, he will have to adjust to the change in rules that will force him to refrain from some of the physicality that he used to be successful at the collegiate level.
