One player is taking a proactive stance in the hope of securing himself a professional contract in the NFL.
Former LSU Tiger, Jeremy Hill, has reportedly mailed all 32 teams a copy of his arrest record as well as two pages of character references.
Questions have been raised over the running back's off-the-field activities in recent time and, although team's would have got the information anyhow, Hill will be hoping this move will be viewed in a positive light as he takes accountability for his actions.
Hill was arrested twice during his time at LSU, once in January 2012 after a guilty plea to misdemeanour carnal knowledge of a juvenile, and again for a simple battery charge for punching an individual outside a bar.
His actions led to him missing playing time after being suspended by the team for one game, but he still finished his final college season with over 1,400 yards and 16 touchdowns.
He is projected to go as early as the first round of the draft, but while he has the raw natural ability his checkered past have led some to voice concern.
CBS analyst Gregg Doyel called him a "risk/reward" pick earlier this year.
