Drake London was born July 24, 2001, in Moorpark California. He is 6’4” tall and weighs in at 210 lbs. Drake attended Moorpark high school and continued his education at USC with a major in communication. Along with playing football, he also played basketball his junior year before committing to the game of football as a wide receiver.
In his 3 years at USC, he had a combined 160 receiving yards, 2,153 total yards, 42 average yards, 15 touchdowns, and his longest was 65 yards. He also received second-team All-Pac-12 accolades from his coaches. Some of Drake London’s strengths are: takes control of the catch space on all levels, meets contested throws, and is an aerial specialist. Even with having many strengths come many weaknesses such as he lacks foot quickness out of release, he runs and moves more like an athletic tight end than a wide receiver, and he has below average toughness in running blocks. I believe he will make a great choice for any NFL team, and with his experience in the NFL, he will become a great wide receiver. For more NFL Draft coverage click here.
