Life after football

LOS ANGELES -- When the roll call of gridiron selective service was announced for the 2008 NFL draft, 10 Trojans were taken, including the first-round likes of defensive linemen Sedrick Ellis and Lawrence Jackson, linebacker Keith Rivers, and offensive tackle Sam Baker.

One name not selected was a workmanlike wide receiver by the name of Bradley Walker, who can speak first-hand that not every Trojans football player lives out the NFL dream.

So what was it like for Walker watching his teammates, including roommate Keith Rivers, being selected by various NFL teams, and also knowing he had probably played his last football game?
