Jahvid Best is now in New York City. Either tomorrow or Friday, his life will dramatically change as he embarks on his NFL career.
Some Best notes:
- He had just one individual workout after Pro Day, with Cleveland. He also met with offiicials with San Diego, New England and the New York Jets.
- Best said he was going to bring about 15 family members to New York with him.
- Best, on his reaction when the NFL’s Gil Brandt called him to invite him to New York: “He told me I could take my time, call him back in a couple days. I said, ‘I can tell you right now, the answer is yes.'”
- Best’s agent, Tony Flemming, said there will be two rooms for the players to wait in during the draft — the usual green room with cameras but then another private room if players don’t want to be on camera while they wait. That is to avoid those Aaron Rodgers-type situations from a few years ago when there is just one player left in the green room waiting for his name to be called.
