David Veikune awaits the NFL draft

About what he’s going to do during the draft, David Veikune said:
“I’m going to go golfing.” (HA)

HA Note: “Veikune has drawn strong interest from several NFL teams. The Minnesota Vikings, Denver Broncos, Philadelphia Eagles, Tennessee Titans and Miami Dolphins brought him in for personal workouts. The Arizona Cardinals and Dallas Cowboys have had face-to-face interviews with Veikune.”

HA Note: “Veikune said that at 260 pounds, he is at a middle weight. He believes he would need to weigh at least 270 to play end in a 4-3 alignment. He said he probably could play linebacker at 255.”

About when Veikune will be drafted, his agent Kenny Zuckerman said:
“I can say that he’s got first-day talent, but where he gets drafted depends on how teams draft players at his position.” (HA)

HA Note: “Zuckerman said scouts like Veikune’s potential. The Campbell High grad attended Colorado for a year and then Fresno City College for a semester. He was at UH for three years.”

About how Veikune hasn’t reached his potential yet, Zuckerman said:
“He’s only been a one-year starter. “His best football is ahead of him.” (HA)

About how he’s not going to have a draft party, Veikune said:
“Why have a party when you’re not sure where you’re going to go?” (HA)

Asked for his handicap in golf, Veikune said:
“Severe. The first time I played was on Friday. I’m not very good, but I had fun.” (HA)
