Mississippi State offensive lineman Justin Malone talks about yesterday's Pro Day event at Mississippi State

Justin Malone was a lightly recruited offensive lineman out of Madison Ridgeland Academy. Now at the end of his college career, Malone has the chance to play football professionally. The talented big man reports that his time at Mississippi State have put him in a position to realize all of his football playing dreams.

Justin Malone battled obscurity as a college football hopeful and injuries as an offensive lineman in America's toughest football division, the SEC West. Despite a limited high school playing resume, Malone developed into a consistent starter for the Mississippi State Bulldogs.

As a member of the signing class of 2011, Malone was part of a group that took Mississippi State to four straight bowl games and the team's first ever #1 ranking in the national football polls.

With his playing days in Starkville now over, Malone has set his sights on possibly making a professional roster somewhere. The talented guard took the next step in that process on Thursday at Mississippi State's Pro Day event.
