Ernest Owens Free Agent NFL Draft
Former standout quarterback Ernest Owens recently sat down with NFL Draft Diamonds writer Justin Berendzen. Check it out.

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 career football players. So I hope you all read this interview about Ernest and follow his journey on social media!
