In front of NFL scouts at the University of Minnesota, after his “career day” passed a decisive physical examination, Quebec cornerback Benjamin St-Juste can only wait for the draft. He said confidently: “I just want to know where I am going, because I am 100% sure that I will be selected.”
“I am very happy, even though I still feel a lot of pressure in front of all the NFL teams. I have a lot of fun and I think I performed well.”
“I know I need to improve and do a good job. I have the opportunity to talk to many teams, most of them are very satisfied with my performance. Later, St. Just reacted in a video conference. It’s a good day for me.
“The team has seen the speed, they have seen the speed in the race. They can see the speed at which I move. If I don’t achieve all my goals, that would be too bad, now it’s time to move forward.”
After the final campaign with the Gophers, St-Juste made an eye-catching performance in the “Senior Bowl” in January, thereby enhancing his value.
Since then, specialized physical testing training has been taken over. The Quebec’s score on his 6’3-inch and 202-pound frame far exceeded the famous 40-yard sprint. Now that the mandatory passage is over, he drools to reconnect with the football.
“I have been training for three months and can run ’40 yards’, perform ‘3 cones’ and agility tests. This is something I will never do again in my career. I am very happy that it has fallen behind. I think I Achieved good results, but this is the last time I have participated in such a track and field competition. Now I can really become a football player,” he was ecstatic, obviously relieved.
Until the draft is held from April 29 to May 1, St-Juste does not intend to relax.
“If I want to be an NFL rookie immediately and have a good career, there is still a lot of work to do, and when I am selected, there is still more work to do. Now, I have a little time to reflect on what I have experienced. The process and the whole process that brought me here, but I will resume work immediately.
The former Spartan from Cégepdu Vieux in Montreal will do his best to return home to experience the draft with his dear ones.
However, given the health measures taken by Quebec, he will have to reluctantly switch to Plan B.
“I’m really disappointed that I can’t return to Montreal. It’s a plan of not going home for two and a half years. Because of the curfew and all restrictions, I don’t think this will happen and it won’t shock me because I want to be with my family and relatives Experience this moment with a friend. My second choice is to do something at the University of Georgia in Atlanta, where my girlfriend is studying,” he said.
