SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Former Utah defensive tackle Leki Fotu has been busy during the draft process as he has virtually visited 17 NFL teams.
According to Houston Texans beat writer Aaron Wilson from the Houston Chronicle, Fotu has spoken to 17 teams virtually and physically visited the Philadelphia Eagles before the NFL halted physical visits due to the coronavirus or COVID-19 pandemic.
Among the 17 teams visited, Wilson reported that Fotu spoke to the Houston Texans, Philadelphia Eagles, Miami Dolphins, Los Angeles Chargers, Chicago Bears, Seattle Seahawks, Tennessee Titans and Green Bay Packers.
