PHILADELPHIA (WTVG) - The wait will soon be over for former Irish quarterback DeShone Kizer. He was not selected in Thursday's first round of the 2017 NFL Draft but he is expected to be selected Friday during the second or third rounds which begin at 7 p.m.
Thursday Kizer made a stop at the Tostitos Cantina for a question and answer session with fans inside the NFL Draft Experience. While answering a question from a fan, Kizer referenced not only his hometown of Toledo but treating interviews with 13abc while at Central Catholic as though it truly was a big moment - such as the NFL Draft.
Later in the evening, Kizer walked the other red carpet with the other potential draftees invited to Philadelphia for the draft. Joining Kizer on the red carpet was his sister Maelyn - a sophomore student at Notre Dame Academy.
