2016 NFL Draft Feature: Michigan State tackle Jack Conklin

B1G FEATURE - BTN profiles former Michigan State OL Jack Conklin before the 2016 NFL Draft.

Jack Conklin didn’t expect to be here.

With no Division I scholarship out of Plainwell High School in Plainwell, Michigan, Conklin has defied odds en route to becoming one of the Big Ten’s premier offensive lineman and a likely first round NFL draft pick.

Here he is, though, just days away from being a high pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, which starts with the first round Thursday night in Chicago.

Before Conklin hears his name called in Chicago, BTN host Mike Hall profiles the former Michigan State walk-on-turned-star’s story, one that would make a great movie script.

Watch the full feature in the video above.
