It sounds like the script from a movie. Florida State right tackle Menelik Watson's life is anything but ordinary.

The 24-year old grew up in Manchester, England, as an impoverished child. Two of his brothers served prison time. He has a daughter who lives with her mother.

At first it was soccer that turned Watson's life around. Then there were some other sporting stints before the 6'5" and 310-pound tackle settled on football.


Check out the video above as Watson chronicles his life to the NFL draft.
