He wants to be back in the National Football League, and D.J. Fluker is doing all he can to make it a reality.

As a former All-American offensive tackle at the University of Alabama, Fluker put on a show during the Crimson Tide’s Pro Day on March 23 in Tuscaloosa, Ala. He impressed every NFL team by getting his weight down to 330 pounds. Fluker showed quick footwork, explosive power, strong hands, and fluid change of direction. He showed teams that he can be a very good tackle if needed. He got drafted at No. 11 overall in the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft by the San Diego Chargers. Fluker bounced around to seven teams, including a year (2021) on the Jacksonville Jaguars’ practice squad before being out of the league.

Fluker, a former five-star in the 2009 recruiting class, helped the Crimson Tide to three BCS National Championships in 2009, 2011, and 2012. He continues to put in the work and is in the best shape of his life.

Hopefully, he lands a call from an NFL team to come to work.
