Waverly’s Andy Phillips tackles NFL draft from all angles in new book

When Andy Phillips sits down to watch the NFL draft each year, he often wonders if anyone got the same call he did.

That call for the Waverly graduate and former Central Michigan offensive lineman came an hour prior to the start of the 2015 NFL draft and was from the Chicago Bears.

On the other end was then-Bears offensive line coach Dave Magazu letting Phillips know how life-changing a weekend it was about to be for him.

The draft came and went without Phillips ever hearing anything from the Bears. And he also never heard anything from them as teams brought in undrafted free agents.

That call, his experience through the draft process and his interest in the game led to Phillips authoring a book called “Round Zero: Inside the NFL Draft.” The book is available on Amazon pre-order and will be released in January.
