NFL Notes: Draft, Marquise Brown, Jachai Polite


Marquise Brown

  • According to Adam Schefter, Oklahoma WR Marquise Brown has had the boot on his foot from Lisfranc surgery removed and been cleared for running.  
  • Schefter says Brown, projected by some as a first-round pick, could be ready for post-draft minicamp.  

Jachai Polite

Florida edge rusher Jachai Polite said he was not “ready mentally” for the interview process at the NFL Combine. 

It’s been pretty tough, but it’s a major learning experience for me, something I’ve never been through in my life,” Polite said, via Mike DiRocco of ESPN. “I just keep learning every day. Nobody in my family has been through anything like this, so I had nobody to help me, really, other than my agent. But I never knew how serious and how mentally tough you had to be for this moment.”
