Indianapolis Colts select Temple CB Rock Ya-Sin with the 34th pick

Rock Ya-Sin is the latest rags to riches story to leave North Philadelphia for greener pastures in the NFL.

The star cornerback who transferred from Presbyterian College to the Temple Owls for one season was selected with the 34th overall pick by the Indianapolis Colts in the 2019 NFL Draft.

Ya-Sin has the physique that NFL teams covet at corner. At 6 feet, 192 pounds, he has the size and speed to match up against both bigger and smaller receivers. He is a physical player that will mix it up in both the passing and running game.
