A shoulder injury likely played a significant role in Pitt receiver Devin Street falling to the Cowboys in the fifth round--where Dallas considered him a massive steal--but Street says the injury is fully healed and he’s ready to get to work at Valley Ranch.
“Definitely ready to go fully, 100 percent healthy,” Street told the team’s official website. “I met with the training staff, I’m all cleared to go. I fell a little bit in the draft--it doesn’t matter, though. I’m at the place I want to be.”
After he was drafted, receivers coach Derek Dooley told Street to never forget all the receivers who went before him in the draft, as well as all the teams that passed on him, and use it as motivation in the NFL. The message apparently resonated with Street.
“I’ll remember that feeling, sitting there and feeling I was better than a lot of those guys who were going, but everything happens for a reason,” Street said. “I feel like I’m in the perfect place, perfect system, great organization.”
