Beginning Tuesday, April 2, Yahoo! Sports will debut an original online program, "Dream Chasers," that will share the remarkable stories of six draft prospects pursuing their collective goal of making it to the NFL.
Produced by Yahoo!, the special six-part series followed these elite athletes for 10 weeks as they prepared for the NFL scouting combine in February. Players like Kenny Stills from Oklahoma and Kenjon Barner of Oregon bring viewers into their world by revealing their hopes and fears, triumphs and tragedies, memories from the past and visions of the future.
