Former USC safety and outside linebacker Su’a Cravens is garnering a ton of attention right for his ability to both fluctuate his weight and move all over the defensive side of the ball. This has led to him receiving a myriad of offers to hold private workouts with teams.
Due to so many requests for these workouts, Cravens has been forced to turn some down. His agent, Fadde Mikhail, discussed how Cravens has had to deny the teams because of him not wanting to take on too much of a load or let any teams down.
“There have been too many teams that have called to set up private workouts,” Mikhail said, “and I think Su’a’s body of work on film speaks for itself. Su’a is a football player. He is a playmaker at whatever position he’s at, whether it’s safety or linebacker. Su’a has three years of film while an All-American at USC, plus he did the Combine and did everything at his Pro Day on March 23 where all 32 NFL clubs were present.”
If you have all of the teams there at your pro day, it is kind of hard to want to continue working out with these teams. especially if you feel like you showed them enough then.
Cravens had an impressive showing with a 4.69 40 and a 30 1/2 inch vertical jump. It is really hard to believe he could show them much more or boost his draft stock much higher, so taking what he has now and not risking injury is probably the smartest thing for him to do.
During his career at USC, Su’a Cravens showed off his versatility by playing all over the field. He recorded 207 tackles, 34.5 for loss, 10.5 sacks, nine interceptions and 16 pass deflections.
I think any team would love to have him playing with them instead of against them.
