London's Jermaine Eluemunor heading to the Scouting Combine

Posted Mar 1, 2017

Londoner Jermaine Eluemunor played College Football for Texas A&M and the offensive tackle will hope to impress NFL teams ahead of the Draft at the Combine.

Each February, hundreds of the very best college football players are invited to the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, where executives, coaches, scouts and doctors from all 32 NFL teams conduct an intense, four-day job interview in advance of the NFL Draft.

This year Londoner Jermaine Eluemunor will follow in the footsteps of previous British players, Jack Crawford, Menelik Watson and Jay Ajayi and look to impress all 32 teams at the Scouting Combine.

Jermaine moved to America in 2009 but was inspired by the very first London Game which saw the Miami Dolphins host the New York Giants at Wembley in 2007; "It’s funny, the way I got into it was this: I went home one night, I flipped on TV and I saw the Miami Dolphins and New York Giants playing. Eli Manning—he must have been so young. That game was at Wembley. I loved the way they were hitting each other, the intensity. So I began googling American football and got more into it."
