Dennis Digs Deeper

Stefon Diggs was a highly recruited talent coming out of high school that never really became what some thought he could be. He is an interesting prospect because typically a guy who is 6 feet or under must have great athletic ability to be a big producer in the NFL. Antonio Brown, Odell Beckham Jr. and Randall Cobb are a few that come to mind.
