NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

Ask Sonic Boom speed coach Wyatt Harris about Northwestern St. wide receiver Ed Eagan and one word comes to mind.

"Explosion. Explosion, man. The freaky ability to stop and go. That's a gift," Harris said.

That gift allowed him to become the most prolific wide receiver in Demon football history. He's hoping it gets a team to call his name on draft day. Currently, he's projected as a sixth or seventh round pick. But Eagan isn't down on his late-round projection. In fact, it serves as motivation.

"It always gives me an edge just seeing guys that are rated higher than me or teams that don't like me. It helps me work harder," Eagan said. 

And he's done plenty of that throughout the pre-draft process. Eagan's college career is undeniable, he owns ten Northwestern St. records including career receptions and receiving yards. He also runs a consistent 4.4 forty-yard dash.However, he said his small school status is an obstacle but not one that can't be overcome.

"It comes up a lot," he said. "That's like my weaknesses under my thing or whatever that it's bad competition or lower competition. So I have to deal with that, but at the end of the day I feel like I can play at that level."
