rolleFlorida, Apr 25, (THAINDIAN NEWS) Myron Rolle got drafted by the Tennessee Titans in the third day of the National Football League draft, on Saturday. He got picked up as the 38th pick of the third day, and the last one. When finally his name was called as the final pick of the day, he felt a huge sense of relief, for, admittedly, he had been hoping to get picked up a long time back. After his name was announced, he commented that he was hoping to get drafted by the beginning of the third day, but it became difficult for him to digest when he saw that his name was just not being called.

Myron Rolle commented that he had always wanted to be a part of the Tennessee Titans, a team that hailed from the Galloway Township, his native town. He admitted that he had been all ready for the celebrations, but was not ready for the disappointment that prevailed when he saw other players being chosen, players, he confessed, had been ranked far below him in the mock drafts. He admitted that what made this even harder was watching the disappointment on the faces of his family being captured live on camera.

On the other hand, he is not the one to brood over his disappointment. He admits that all that matters right now is the fact that he has been chosen, and that too by the team he wanted to go to. He, however, could explain why he had dropped in the draft, although he admitted that he had no clue that it would push his chances so low. He said that taking a one-year-hiatus was what had resulted in this situation.
