KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Fifty people anxiously awaited a phone call alongside E.J. Gaines on Friday night. Gaines was a three-year starter at the University of Missouri and before that he was a standout for Ft. Osage in high school.
Now Gaines is awaiting to see which NFL team he's going to join. While he hoped to be drafted on Friday night in either the second or third round, he is now expected to be taken sometime on Saturday.
On Friday night Gaines' cousin hosted a draft party and FOX 4's Judy Le found out that Gaines is a born and raised Raiders fan. Even though he didn't get picked Friday night, he'll still have people by his side on Saturday, anxiously awaiting each time someone steps up to the NFL Draft podium.
