Saturday night at the Norfolk Tides game, Ximines made sure his first pitch was on point. The Tides hosted him for their ODU Night, where he also signed autographs for a long line of fans.

As you can imagine, being so close to a life-altering moment is at the forefront of his mind. "I think about the draft every minute of every day," Ximines said.

"Half the time I just have to be like Shane just relax man, we've been working our whole life for this. I'm going to be on a whole new football team come August, and I'm going to be in a camp."

Most mock drafts from draft scouting websites have projected Ximines to be selected anywhere from the second round to the fourth.

"I'm just going to let everything happen, so when I step on the field for whichever team I'm going to give my all so thats whats most important to me."

The NFL Draft begins Thursday night in Nashville, Tennessee.
