When the NFL Draft happens on April 29, players will be dressed up in the finest clothes. It is one of their biggest days, and one Jennings is familiar with, and some of his clients want to dress up in a suit and tie. Some want to wear a nice shirt. This year will be tricky with the pandemic, so some rookies will be attending, and some are staying at home, which will also affect how they dress.
Jennings worked with Kwity Paye from the University of Michigan and Caleb Farley from Virginia Tech. According to Adonis, both will be wearing interesting suits, though Farley will be doing so from home.
