James Bradberry was fixing toilet when he got call Panthers drafted him
James Bradberry has a draft day story he will never forget. Only this is one that does not involve hugs, tears and TV cameras.
Bradberry, a 6-foot-1 cornerback from Samford, told Panthers reporters that he was fixing his mother’s toilet when he got the call from Carolina that he had been drafted late in the second round.

Well, at least we can say the man is good with his hands and willing to take on all sorts of dirty work. Those are two good qualities for a player entering the NFL.
Bradberry was the No. 62 overall pick in the draft. NFL Media’s scouting report on him says there is a possibility he could be moved from CB to safety.
At least his draft day story is better than some other NFL players we know.
