Worthington is a talented athlete who excelled at CU the last two seasons.Career Stats: 128 total tackles, 10 tackles for a loss, 10 pass deflections, 4 interceptions, and 1 forced fumble in his final two years.Worthington interviewed exclusively with Stampede Blue to talk about his team suspension in 2016, his development on and off the field since that suspension, and how he will translate to the NFL.Zach Hicks: I know you grew up in the state of Colorado but how did you end up at Colorado University?Evan Worthington: I just got an offer from them my junior year. So, Coach Mac (Mike MacIntyre) would always be at my school and he’d help me with my classes because my grades weren’t so good back then. Most schools that came to look at me told me that my transcripts were bad so they wouldn’t offer me. Coach Mac, though, would help me and made sure I had the right classes so I could be on track to graduate and have the right GPA to get into CU. After all that, I just felt that it was the right place for me.ZH: After you were enrolled at Colorado, you were suspended from the team in 2016 for violating team rules. We won’t go into the details of the suspension but how hard was it to be away from football for a year?EW: It was real tough, especially when it hit me. It was during spring ball before the season even started so it really hit me hard because the season was already far away and I knew I couldn’t play in it. After that I just finished the semester of school with no football and then I went back home to Aurora and just started working.ZH: The suspension, in a way, kind of changed you for the better. You returned in 2017 and made All-PAC 12 teams in both your junior and senior seasons along with being very active in community service. Do you feel as though the suspension helped turn things around for you?EW: It definitely helped me. I learned not to take every day for granted. Before the suspension I was just... I lost the love for football. I even wanted to leave CU at a point. It was all frustrating for me. I forgot why I was even there and then once I lost it all, I realized how important football was for me. It really changed my life and I need to take full advantage of it.ZH: Why were you so active in community service at Colorado?EW: I just have a lot of people to give back to. It is just something we do at Colorado. They have places for us to go, they set us up with different activities and it is just something that we are encouraged to do.ZH: That’s awesome man! Speaking of Colorado though, shifting our focus back to football, they have become a bit of a DBU in recent years with guys like Chidobe Awuzie, Ahkello Witherspoon, and Isaiah Oliver in recent years. What is in the water at Colorado to produce so many quality DBs?EW: Coach Mac was always in the defensive back room with us and he was a great coach with us for that. He would tell us everything from different techniques and how to play different routes and all that. We all bought into it. Just learning a lot from him really helped us a lot because he would spend most of his time with us. It would be tough at times but he definitely pushed us the most to be better.ZH: You were invited to participate at the Shrine Game this year. How was that whole experience for you?EW: It was a great experience for me, getting to talk to all the scouts about my story and all that. I got to explain to them how everything happened and then being able to play with the good players all around the country. I ended up getting hurt the third day of practice, it was a right ankle sprain that wasn’t too serious — just bad enough to shut it down — so I didn’t ruin my training before the combine.ZH: Speaking of the combine, you were invited this year after overcoming so much adversity in your football career. What did it mean to you to get that invite?EW: It was such an important moment for me because I was just wondering if I would get it. Just seeing that I got it Youth Christine Michael Sr Jersey , it just gave me a great opportunity to take advantage of. I’m going to really show scouts my athletic ability and everything else I can do. Show some scouts that I’m actually fast because some people don’t believe that I’m fast so overall it is just a great opportunity for me. ** For context, Worthington ran a career best 11.03 second 100 meter dash in high school and was a two time All-Centennial performer in track. So yes, he’s fast.ZH: Going to your tape, you have experience in single-high, slot corner, and even as a dime linebacker. What position do you feel most comfortable though?EW: It doesn’t really matter to me. I like all of those spots, just anywhere on the football field, but I like single-high the most because I feel I’m most comfortable there. ZH: What technique do you prefer to reach your landmarks as a safety? Like, do you prefer sprinting to a spot or backpedaling?EW: It depends on the quarterback we were facing. For the faster guys, I’d like to play flat footed to make sure they aren’t doing a QB read or anything. For the more passing QBs, I’d like to sprint back and get to my landmark that way.ZH: What do you believe to be your best trait going into the NFL?EW: My versatility, I feel like I could play any position on a defense besides D-line (laughs). ZH: Who in the NFL do you compare your game/ model your game after most?EW: I wanna be like Kam Chancellor and how he was. I like Derwin James even though he was only a rookie. He’s a really good football player and I feel like I measure the same as him. Maybe like a Jamal Adams as well.ZH: Last question for you. Why should my team draft Evan Worthington in this draft?EW: I’m a reliable guy who proved it by turning myself around when I came back to Colorado. I’m a versatile athlete who can play anywhere on the field, whenever someone goes down, I could fill in at their spot. Wherever I am needed on the field, I could produce very well. I can make a ton of plays and I’m only getting better. The Colts prospect interviews are rolling along as we approach the NFL Draft.

Today’s player interview is Ohio State offensive lineman Malcolm Pridgeon. The Colts need more depth on the offensive line, and the gigantic Pridgeon could be a good developmental option.The interview will be towards the bottom of the page. Pridgeon interviewed exclusively with Stampede Blue, discussing his JUCO experience, his versatility on the line, and what he looks for on film.BackgroundSize:6’7” 310 poundsMeasurables: No Combine InviteRound Projection: Round 6-7Fit with the Colts:The Colts are set on the offensive line at this point Christine Michael Sr Jersey Stitched , with all five starters locked in for next year. Along with those five starters, they likely already have two backups, in Joe Haeg and Evan Boehm, locked in as well. They could still use more depth and versatility up front as well, though. Pridgeon is a huge, versatile player who could play either guard or tackle for the team. He may not be ready immediately to contribute to the team, but getting him in a room with Howard Mudd and Chris Strausser should help him develop into a really solid player. I like the potential in a player like Pridgeon.Film RoomPridgeon is a solid run blocker who understands leverage and how to flip his hips to create space for runners.Pridgeon’s size and strength allow him to finish plays while run blocking. He’s a powerful player.Pridgeon’s pass protection needs a bit of work, but his stance is great and he has a good punch to knock defenders off their moves. InterviewZH: You went the JUCO route out of high school. What was that like for you?MP: I would say the JUCO route was the best route for me. I had my ups and downs, and my adversity. It was difficult, though, getting used to college and being away from home. Living situation was basically just football and classes, and how to manage all that stuff. It is definitely different going from JUCO to Ohio State, but it was worth it.ZH: You redshirted your first year and then played some special teams afterwards. What was the transition like when you became a starter this past season?MP: I would say that the first year when I got hurt was a little disappointing, but it was definitely a time I could use to adjust to Ohio State. From the classroom to the field, it’s just a lot quicker than JUCO. After that injury in 2017, I came back and played a little special teams and still wasn’t too too confident with the knee injury. 2018 came, though, and I had a good Spring Ball, and went to workouts, and came back much stronger every single day. I was getting stronger, moving better, learning the playbook, so I just felt good going into that season.ZH: You’ve played with a ton of great players at Ohio State so I’m going to put you on the spot. If you were heading to war tomorrow and could only take two teammates, one from offense and one from defense Youth Rigoberto Sanchez Jersey , who would you take?MP: Man that is tough.... You are really putting me on the spot here (laughs). On offense, I’d probably say my best friend, and we moved into together, which is Michael Jordan. On defense, I’d probably have to say Davon Hamilton. He’s another one of my best friends and a guy I’d go to war with any day.ZH: Going to your film, you’re a massive player. Ohio State’s website has you at 6’7”. Do you think that you could maybe play tackle in the NFL with your size?MP: I could definitely play tackle. I could mix it up and play guard but I think I have the ability to play either position. ZH: How important is it for lineman to finish plays and put defenders in the ground?MP: I know it is really important especially with my size. You have to have that desire to put any person that gets in your way on their back. Anybody who is trying to get to the quarterback is going on their back. That’s just how lineman have to play the game, you know.ZH: When you watch film as an offensive lineman, what are you looking for?MP: So, when it comes to my defender, I first like to watch how he switches up his stance.You know, from the three or four. I like to see how he gets off of the ball. I want to see how he reacts after a play or after a big gain. How he reacts even after we score. I like to find his key weaknesses and also find his strengths so I know how to counter them.ZH: Who in the NFL do you compare yourself to the most?MP: I don’t really model my game after anyone. I like to actually watch entire offensive lines when I’m watching NFL film. I like some of the techniques from teams like the Patriots, the Rams, the Lions.. I watch their footwork, and how physical they play on every snap. So, I don’t really watch players and compare myself, mostly watch films of teams I like to study on Sundays.ZH: Last two questions are Colts-centered. First, the Colts are pretty set with starting linemen right now. How comfortable would you be coming in initially as a reserve and learning as more of a special teamer/backup player?MP: I’d feel real comfortable. I mean, I’d take full advantage of any situation where I can learn more and be a better player. I’d love to be able to grow and develop with all of my teams until it is my time to go.ZH: Lastly, how fun would it be to join a talented young offensive line that features Quenton Nelson, Ryan Kelly, and Braden Smith?MP: I mean it would definitely be fun. It would be fun just to learn the different techniques and just bond with each other. It really goes back too to just bettering myself and bettering my teammates so I’d love to be able to work with those talented players.
