There isn't much room for humility in the leadup to the NFL Draft. Players are constantly having to sell themselves on teams, especially those from the small school ranks.

That is something former EWU cornerback T.J. Lee has had to learn to do. Lee said he was too humble early on in the process. Now he's trying to make sure teams know about him - a two-time All-American and three-time All-Big Sky selection.

The 5-foot-9-inch Seattle native has put on 25 pounds since his senior season ended. Lee said he ran a 4.44 40-yard dash in a workout with the Seahawks.

Lee played in the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl. He says the teams he has had the most contact with are the Colts, Texans, Browns, Giants and Seahawks.

The NFL Draft begins with Round 1 May 8th, and wraps up May 10th.
