Draft Diamonds Free Agent Interview: Devonte Mc’Namee, Defensive Back
Hello, I am @jrberendzen on Twitter and this is one of my free agent interviews where I ask very deserving free agents questions about the players themselves and about what a team would get in these players. All of these players should get picked up by NFL, CFL, and XFL teams and get a shot at being a career football player. So I hope you all read this interview of Devonte and follow his journey on Twitter @iammdewey
