Tyson selected by Seahawks in the 6th round

Safety Michael “Mike” Tyson was selected in the 6th round by the Seattle Seahawks, he was the only Bearcat to get drafted over the weekend. I’m on record saying Tyson made the biggest jump from his junior to senior season. He was a legit playmaker for the Bearcats in 2016.

Check out his draft call and some words from his press release.

Shortly after his selection, Tyson described himself to as a “very physical, competitive player, versatile. “I just want to get the job done and do anything to help the team,” Tyson said. “Wherever they need me to do to help the team, I’ll do it… They told me to be open to all (positions), but be ready to compete at press corner. They told me to stay open to all defensive back positions.”

“I get that question at least once a day,” Tyson told “If I meet anybody new, that’s probably one of the first things they ask me. Am I related to Mike Tyson? Can I fight like Mike Tyson? Who’s the real Mike Tyson? When they ask me who’s the real Mike Tyson, I tell them, ‘Both of us are real, he boxed, and I play football.’”

Good luck Mike do your thing.
