Godwin Igwebuike traveled to the NFL Combine with the same goals as those of almost every other safety in Adrian Kempe Youth jersey attendance. The former Northwestern defensive back, however, is looking to move up the draft board.

It’s safe to say Igwebuike will bring the same mindset to the team that drafts him in April.

I have a great family. I was always raised the right way. I knew the difference from right and wrong, but for whatever reason, I just liked to choose wrong, Manziel said. And I got in that rut.
