With the NFL Draft having taken place this past weekend, EBONY chatted with 29-year football vet James Bradberry about his thoughts on the process.

As a 2nd round 62nd pick overall, Bradberry was drafted to the Carolina Panthers. Then, he was signed as a free agent by the New York Giants, which led him to his first Pro Bowl. In 2021 Bradberry was named one of the top NFL players by the NFL Network and was nominated for the Giants' 2021 Art Rooney Sportsmanship Award. In May of last year, he signed a one-year contract with the Philadelphia Eagles which led to an astounding season resulting in a Super Bowl appearance against the Kansas City Chiefs. He was selected for the 2022 All-Pro teamxtended his contract with the Eagles for a 3-year deal. 

"Draft weekend is always a pretty exciting time. Of course, after coming off of an amazing Super Bowl season last year, there has been a lot of speculation on what our team's set-up will look like this year. Even though we didn’t win the Super Bowl this past season, it is undeniable that we have a team that is built for another appearance and we look forward to welcoming the guys that will join us for the ride," said Bradberry.
