Cantrell's former writing history came in 2016 when he was a writing and scouting contributor to Paulo Figari's website NFLDraftSquad. While contributing there, he covered west coast prospects, and completed dozens of scouting reports for that season's mass draft guide. Cantrell looks forward to the opportunities presented at Breaking Football, and is ecstatic to help his colleagues deliver fresh insights towards the NFL Draft and the entire game of football.
