Once upon a time, there was a relatively skinny kid from Glendale who was ripping up the local high school scene as a dominating running back, rushing for more than 2,100 yards as a senior.
One of those weeks in the fall, the skinny kid from Apollo High School was invited to the Cardinals’ complex after winning the Wells Fargo high school player of the week award. And Prince Amukamara came by to meet, among others, Kurt Warner and Larry Fitzgerald.
(OK, it wasn’t too long ago. It was 2006).
Amukamara has come a long way since then, going to the University of Nebraska, getting switched to cornerback and, obviously, filling out physically. Now he’s a first-round NFL draft pick-to-be, impressing a lot of people at the just-completed Scouting combine. He’s regarded as the second-best cornerback behind LSU’s Patrick Peterson.
