VIDEO: Former New York Jets wide receiver, Wesley Walker, shares his memories of his NFL Draft

What's The 411 TV's host, Andrew Rosario, caught up with Wesley Walker, former Wide Receiver for the New York Jets (1977-1989) at the NFL Draft 2012 at Radio City Music Hall in New York City.

In this video, Wesley Walker shares his memories of the NFL Draft when he was drafted into the NFL. Back in his day, the NFL didn't have this much hoopla surrounding the Draft, but he is happy that the Jets asked him to participate.

Surprisingly, this was Walker's first NFL Draft event since he was drafted into the NFL. He was enjoying the fans, happy to share the experience with those who were being drafted, and of course, happy to be in NYC.

Astonishingly, the Jets had no idea that Walker was blind in his left eye when he was drafted, which prompted pre-physicals of prospective draftees in successive years. Walker overcame this handicap to become one of the Jets all-time great receivers. He led the league in receiving yards in 1978, was elected to the Pro Bowl twice 1978 and 1982, and was named the New York Jets MVP in 1978.

Guess who's back? Back again.... New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady takes the field after serving his four-game suspension for deflated footballs.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell commissioned an investigation into the possible illegal deflation of NFL-regulated footballs in the AFC Championship game on Jan. 18, 2015.

A federal judge initially overturned the suspension, allowing Brady to play last season, but an appeals court reinstated it this spring. Prior to training camp in July, Brady announced he would end his legal challenges and accept the league’s punishment.
