Tatum’s Stephen Hodge impresses NFL scouts

Former Tatum Eagle quarterback Stephen Hodge has a very real shot at becoming a pro.

Over the weekend, Hodge was a big reason why TCU had the largest number of NFL scouts assembled for the school's pro day.

Hodge participated in the NFL combine but took advantage of another chance to wow NFL teams.

Despite predicitions he could be a fifth or sixth round pick in this year's draft, Stephen still has some anxiety about the next seven weeks.

"Nervous," Stephen said. "I'm just hoping that something comes through, hoping to get a phone call. But if I don't, I'll go free agent, just be ready to play when I get to minicamp."

"I feel real good about what I did today," Stephen said of his Pro Day workout. "I just gave the scouts more to look at because I can play different positions which gives me a better chance of making it to the NFL. I feel real comfortable. It was no pressure coming in to today. It was more pressure at the NFL combine. By now, coming here just doing drills it was a lot of pressure off of me."

The NFL Draft is April 25-26.
