    Youngest Player Ever To Be Drafted

    A tailor who makes custom suits for the likes of LaDainian Tomlinson and Shawne Merriman was taking measurements of Amobi Okoye, but it was too late to salvage Okoye's wardrobe that day. There was no choice but to wear the same sweatpants he'd been in for 24 hours, along with a white T-shirt, sneakers and an expression that shifted between resignation and disgust.

    Okoye, a 19-year-old defensive lineman, is expected to be taken in the first round of the upcoming NFL draft and become the youngest player to join the league since the 1970 NFL-AFL merger – provided he can survive days like the one last week.
