FCS primer for the 2018 NFL Draft

(STATS) - NFL Draft prospect Taron Johnson originally signed at Weber State to play wide receiver. He was the one who wanted to switch to cornerback, and convinced the coaching staff about it.

That sums up how FCS players try to make it to the next level - being versatile and making the most of any opportunity.

Some will switch positions, some will contribute on special teams, but they all seem to enter the NFL feeling they have to do more than their counterparts from the FBS. Certainly less exposed than FBS players, the FCS players aren't necessarily smaller or slower - although there is the perception - but there is a sense of being disrespected and underrated.
