BATON ROUGE – Former LSU defensive lineman Breiden Fehoko was part of a national championship team that earned 16 invites to the NFL combine, which was the most for any school in the country. However, the Hawaii native wasn’t one of the Tigers brought to Indianapolis nor did he get to perform at LSU’s Pro Day due to COVID-19.
“I’m always going to be happy for those guys around me. Personally, I’m always going to have a chip on my shoulder because I know what I’m capable of doing. I know what I can showcase to scouts, and they’re just going to have to wait and see until rookie training camp,” Fehoko said.
Fehoko didn’t get to showcase his skills, but he did learn from some of the top defensive minds in the country, which helps put the former Tiger a step ahead of other defensive linemen in his draft class.
“At LSU, I was so blessed to be under guys like Coach Aranda, Coach O, who are guys who are mentally sound in the game. They know the ins and outs of my position. Coach Johnson being able to work with guys like Aaron Donald, Ndamukong Suh, Michael Brockers, being able to teach me the things he taught them.”
Even with gyms and facilities closed, Fehoko has kept in shape at home, and he’s used the idle time to show his dedication to the game.
“I want to be making sure that, when they sign me, they’re going to get their best investment. An investment where, for the month of April, I wasn’t just sitting on the couch.”
