WATCH: Las Vegas Raiders 12th Overall Draft Pick Henry Ruggs III Used To Dunk On Everyone
This is ridiculous. The 12th overall pick in the NFL Draft, Henry Ruggs, was apparently a basketball star before he played football. I did a little bit of digging and found and interview where he said, “I never expected to be here…It’s been real crazy because basically I went from being a basketball star, someone who dunks all the time, to being a superstar athlete.” He wasn’t lying when he said he used to be someone who dunks all the time. This guy is CATCHING BODIES in this highlight tape, and he’s only 5’11”. I’m 6’4” and I can dunk on a good day. Like a day where we play on a rim that’s slightly lower than usual. Can you imagine being this good at 2 sports? I wasn’t even lucky enough to be this good at 1. Ruggs is catching one handed alley oops like its nothing. He’s driving the lane and tomahawk dunking it on anyone in his way. Just insane. Catching bodies in the winter and burning DB’s in the fall.
