Reno, NV (MyNews4.com) -- Last year, former Wolf Pack Running Back, Stefphon Jefferson was the nation's second leading rusher, averaging close to 145 yards per game. He set single-season records for the Wolf Pack in carries, rushing yards, rushing touchdowns and total scores. The Third-Team All-American decided to forgo his senior season and enter the NFL Draft. Although he didn't get drafted, the Tennessee Titans quickly signed him.
We asked Stefphon if he's happy with his decision. Stefphon told us, “Yeah. I’m definitely happy. No regrets. My main reason why I came out was because of my faith, and God led me to my decision. I’ve experienced so much stuff that I’ve never imagined I’d be doing.”
Last season, the Titans rushing offense was ranked 21st in the NFL, averaging only 105.4 yards per game. This season, Jefferson will be competing with Chris Johnson, Shonne Greene and Jamie Harper on the running back depth chart. We asked Jefferson what he thinks of the competion. Stefphon said, “Whatever happens, happens. It would be great to even be in a race with them to get a role. I’m ready to get things started… I’m ready to go out there and see what I can do.”
Rookie camp with the Titans begins May 9th. He'll be joining former Pack teammate, Cornerback Khalid Wooten. Wooten was selected by the Tennessee Titans in the 6th round, 202nd overall in the 2013 NFL Draft.
