When you grow up in Germany, learn football via Madden and play only two years of high school football, there's naturally going to be some question marks about your status as a prospect.
However, Bjoern Werner silenced a lot of his critics with a stellar career at Florida State. He showed tons of speed and quickness. At 6'4" and 255, the defensive end is still learning the game.
We caught up with Werner at IMG Academy, an athletic training institute, in Bradenton, Florida.
Check out the video above as the speedy defensive lineman, in his own words, tells us about his journey to the NFL.
Where will Bjoern Werner go in the 2013 NFL draft?
You're invited to Bleacher Report's Live Draft Party from Times Square in New York City. (RSVP here.)
