Video: Oklahoma LB Eric Striker Gives Incredibly Passionate Speech On ESPN After Going Undrafted

Oklahoma linebacker Eric Striker was expected to be drafted at some point this weekend, but ended up going unpicked. Now, he'll have to try and make the NFL as an undrafted free agent. 

The ESPN cameras were in his house this afternoon, ready to film the moment when Striker was chosen. It never came, but they may have gotten an even better video.

Striker addressed the crowd of supporters, thanking them for showing up and saying their presence and support was what really mattered. He vowed to make the most of the chance he gets, no matter how he gets it. 

This video is very powerful and worth your time. 

It looks like Striker has the right attitude toward approaching this setback. He's the type of guy worth rooting for.
