There's always plenty of touching stories heading into the 2021 NFL Draft. Caleb Farley overcame both a potentially devastating injury while at Virginia Tech and a personal tragedy to be selected by the Tennessee Titans in the first round.

That personal tragedy dealt with Farley losing his mother to breast cancer during his college career. But, Farley continues to play with his mother in mind and has dedicated his rookie campaign in her memory.

With his mother in mind, Farley has all of the personal motivation one would need. He'll bring that intensity to the NFL field. "If she were here, I would be talking trash to her about what I'm about to do to everybody," said Farley.

FanDuel Sportsbook also predicts that Farley may have a breakout rookie campaign. According to the latest NFL odds, Farley owns +1700 odds to win the NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year award in 2021.
