Joe Gaiter: How hungry are you to make the NFL?
Drashane Glass: I had a child at the age of 16 and he is now 6 and he is my world and he looks up to me in every way! I just want to be able to give him the world and I have a family who has never had anything nice and I would like to take care of them and change their lives. My work ethic speaks for itself, especially on the field.
