If we can’t be the first to say it, allow us to add our voice to the chorus: Welcome to the NFL, Derek. Getting to this point has taken a lifetime of training and a grueling semester of final preparations, but you’ve held your head high throughout. Your bar-setting hard work and dedication, sunny disposition and reputation as a solid student and athlete have left a strong impression on all whom you have met during your years here — years that have raised the expectations for the future of Tribe Football. We wish you the best of luck in Jacksonville and hope you enjoyed the celebratory Chili’s burger you promised yourself for the time when the draft would conclude. You certainly earned it.
