Wichita NFL players working out together before training campPosted: Updated:
Wichita natives Davontae Harris, Kyle Wilson, Arthur Brown and Zach Franklin are all back in their hometown and working out together before NFL training camps start next month.
Both Harris and Wilson are NFL rookies and Wichita South graduates. Harris, drafted in the fifth round to the Cincinnati Bengals, is a corner back and he has enjoyed his NFL experience so far.
"The best part is all the guys went to different teams that play different positions, so you kind of get to see the NFL from multiple different perspectives, multiple different positions and multiple different organizations, so you kind of see in which ways your team is similar and which ways your team is different," Harris said.
Wilson, who signed with the Philadelphia Eagles as an undrafted free agent, has worked incredibly hard to get to this point.
"It's a great feeling for sure, especially coming up as a kid that most people didn't think would make it this far is a great feeling. Especially doing it alongside a guy I played high school ball with so it's definitely great for us to do this for the city," Wilson added.
Brown meanwhile was a second round draft pick back in 2013 out of Kansas State. The former East High Blue Ace has played for the Baltimore Ravens, Jacksonville Jaguars, New York Jets and Seattle Seahawks. He is currently a free agent and is hoping to land on with a team.
