Here’s a look back at the incredible journey of Boston College LB Mark Herzlich, who went from projected first-round draft pick following his 2008 junior season to cancer survivor.
Herzlich was invited to the 2011 NFL Draft even though he wasn’t expected to be selected in the first three rounds. He participated in the week of events with all of the draftees and was part of the introduction at Radio City Music Hall on Thursday night, but he has returned home to watch the draft unfold.
They say that Herzlich lived two dreams, the first by beating cancer and the second by returning to play football.
Can he live a third of playing in the NFL? Seems foolish to bet against him.
