Austria’s Bernard Raimann still a high NFL Draft prospect after Senior Bowl

+

The NFL Draft is a time in which fans of American football welcome the brightest young stars to professional football. Many of them are showcased at the Senior Bowl and this year was no exception but with a slight twist in the case of one young man. He’s not American. In a league that is essentially dominated by Americans, many of whom gained national fame before they even graduated from high school, even casual fans might have some familiarity with certain prospects that will hear their names called in Las Vegas this year. One name that many people other than football purists will not recognize is Austrian offensive lineman Bernhard Raimann. He’s a prospect with one of the most unique backgrounds we have seen in some time and although his name might not ring a lot of bells, there is no doubt that the bruising offensive lineman hailing from central Europe is ready for the bright lights of the National Football League.
