For a kid his size, he had some eye-opening quickness and athleticism. He ran a 4.79 in the 40, which was fastest among the offensive linemen in the camp, a 4.63 shuttle, and jumped 26 inches in the vertical. His athleticism made many speculate that Draper might be better suited as a defensive lineman, which Draper himself wasn't adverse to.
"I played defense, too, last year," Draper said. "Defensive end and tackle. I played mostly offense, but I'm open to play anything."
College coaches are probably just in the beginning stages of getting to know Draper, since he wasn't very well-known before the L.A.Nike Camp. He said, so far, he's received a moderate amount of recruiting attention. "I'm getting letters, but no offers yet. I hope I will soon." He said that UCLA, USC, Fresno State and Stanford are some of the schools that have been contacting him through the mail.
When asked if he had a favorite school, Draper said, "UCLA is my favorite. I liked them for a while. I've been in touch with them, too. They're looking to see me more and then I'm hoping something might happen."
Draper said, though, that if he was offered by a favorite early, he'd probably still wait and not commit. "I want to see what my options would be. I don't think I'm going to prolong the process, but I don't want to commit right off either."
He said he has a 3.0 GPA and will take the SAT in May.
