South Carolina defensive end Kingsley "J.J." Enagbare stands behind that the college film he's put together is a more accurate representative of the player he is.
With the 179th overall pick in the fifth round, the Green Bay Packers have afforded the Atlanta native the opportunity to prove his subpar testing numbers for this position were an apparition.
"I feel like my film most importantly shows what I am capable of doing and the kind of impact I am capable of having at the next level," Enagbare said following his Pro Day workout on South Carolina's campus.
Enagbare is one of the more physically imposing edge rushers in the 2022 NFL Draft (6-4, 271) and for the better part of his collegiate career, has played more athletic than he looks.
His long arms and strength have allowed Enagbare to jolt SEC offensive tackles off the ball to create separate to speed rush passed them to get to the quarterback.
And Enagbare is a finisher at the attack, proven by his 13 career sacks and 22 total tackles-for-loss.
It's hard to overlook Enagbare's poor testing numbers in speed and agility drills he had at both the NFL Combine and at USC's Pro Day in March. During the draft leadup, Enagbare looked slow, running 4.8 40-yard dashes as well as high numbers in the three-cone and shuttle drills.
The Gamecocks edge rusher also had a propensity to disappear during games and was inconsistent with his impact on the field.
At South Carolina, he wasn't heavily involved in stopping the run at times.
Enagbare has more questions about his game now than he did when he declared in December for the 2022 NFL Draft.
Had it not been for his struggles during the testing period, Enagbare might would've been a late, first-round draft choice.
Now, he'll spend the better part of his early NFL career erasing the doubts scouts have about him.

SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) - The rest of the world is learning what South Mississippians already knew: Ocean Springs and Bay St. Louis are two of the best small towns in America!
The two coastal towns were both in the running for USA Today’s Best Coastal Small Town award. The Readers’ Choice award ranks coastal towns with fewer than 25,000 people as of the last census. According to the website, each of the 20 nominees offers “unpretentious and affordable seaside fun without the crowds, proving that bigger isn’t always better.”
This year, Ocean Springs topped the list at #1, while Bay St. Louis finished in the #2 spot.
“Ocean Springs is a cozy seaside town overflowing with unparalleled arts, festivals, culture, restaurants, shops, and galleries,” says Cynthia Sutton, executive director of the Ocean Springs Chamber of Commerce-Main Street-Tourism Bureau. “We are truly honored to have two coastal Mississippi communities recognized for their unique character and quaint community feel. This really does help visitors feel welcomed to town.”
Both cities have been nominated for this award before. On 2021′s top ten list, Ocean Springs took the #5 spot while Bay St. Louis was right behind at #6. The Bay was #5 on USA Today’s rankings in 2019 and 2020.
Ocean Springs was also nominated for a second award - Best Small Town Cultural Scene. In that contest, the city finished at #4.
And two other South Mississippi spots are up for recognition: Majestic Oaks RV Resort in Biloxi is nominated for Best Luxury RV Resort. and Davis Bayou Campground in Ocean Springs is nominated for Best Campground. The voting has closed for those categories, and the winners are set to be announced July 1.

From staff reports
The South Carolina Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation’s South Carolina Fire Academy graduated 17 recruits, Friday, Sept. 23, from its eight-week firefighter candidate school in Columbia. Among the firefighters who underwent a 320-hour training program of classroom and hands-on firefighting skills development, Beaufort/Port Royal Fire Department recruit Jason Kleiner stood out.
Kleiner won two of the three awards recruits can claim at the conclusion of their class.
Kleiner won the Order of the Maltese, an award chosen by the class recruits. The Maltese Cross is a firefighter’s badge of honor, signifying that he or she works in courage – a ladder rung away from death. The Eight Obligations of The Maltese Cross are Live in Truth, Repent of Sins, Love Justice, Be Sincere and Whole-Hearted, Have Faith, Give Proof of Humility, Be Merciful, and Endure Persecution.
He also won the Chief Robert Frick Award, awarded to the recruit with the highest grade point average.
Hardeeville Fire Department’s Thomas Cotton won the Pride of the Battalion, chosen by the staff who worked with the recruits and given to the recruit who has demonstrated “Leadership, Integrity, Determination, and Good Value.”
The keynote speaker was Assistant Chief Will Vaigneur of the Lady’s Island-St. Helena Fire District. Other area recruits among the class included City of Beaufort/Town of Port Royal Fire Department’s Casey Peters and Lady’s Island-St. Helena Fire District’s Wyatt Pope.
“This challenging program requires commitment, passion, and dedication,” Fire Academy Superintendent Dennis Ray said. “These recruits have successfully worked together as a team, performed extensive hands-on training with live fires, and passed intensive practical skills evaluations and written tests to meet the National Fire Protection Association standards.”
The comprehensive training, offered quarterly at the Fire Academy, includes emergency responder first-aid training, hazardous materials operations training, auto extrication, flammable liquids and gas firefighting, rescue training, and National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Firefighter I and Firefighter II levels. Additionally, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, changes were made to class structure and facilities to promote social distancing and recommended precautions.
“With the successful completion and graduation of these new firefighters who will now be dedicating their lives to serving their communities and the state, our South Carolina fire service is enhanced,” Ray said. “I am proud of their accomplishments, and I also commend the dedicated Fire Academy instructors who brought the recruits through these weeks of instruction leading to graduation.”
The Fire Academy and the State Fire Marshal’s Office make up the Division of Fire and Life Safety, which is a division of the S.C. Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation.
