Journey to the Draft Ends For Three Players

Leonard Williams, Kevin White and Marcus Peters start NFL careers.

Published May 4, 2015

After having their Journey to the Draft documented, Leonard Williams, Kevin White and Marcus Peters have all found NFL homes.

All three prospects were selected in the first round of the 2015 NFL Draft on Thursday night in Chicago. USC defensive end Leonard Williams was selected sixth overall by the New York Jets, just outside of his Top 5 projection, but to the thrill of Gang Green fans nonetheless. Williams was followed by White, the West Viriginia wide receiver taken seventh overall by the Chicago Bears. The Kansas City Chiefs took Washington cornerback Marcus Peters with the 18th pick in the draft.

The results brought the end of one journey and beginning of an entirely new one for the three stud players, who were all followed as part of AOL's Journey to the Draft online docu-series.

Cameras followed Williams as he worked hard to live up to the expectations of being considered the best defensive player of this year's class. Journey to the Draft also documented White's long road from junior college to becoming a collegiate star at West Virginia and Peters working his way back after being dismissed from Washington due to rifts with coaches.


Journey to the Draft released nine episodes on April 28. The series finale will go live May 6 on
