Rookies often talk about their “Welcome to the NFL” moment. However, that’s usually reserved for something that happens on the field to remind them that they are playing against the best of the best and that they have to be careful for anything to happen to or for them.

Unfortunately, for former Seminoles star safety Derwin James, who was drafted in the first round by the L.A. Chargers in April, he was given that reminder apparently in a scary scene.

TMZ broke the story exclusively on Monday afternoon that James was robbed at gunpoint in Southern California last month:

According to the Gossip site, here’s the recap:

James, and his uncle were leaving an Italian restaurant on Sunset Blvd. on June 23 when 2 black males allegedly rushed them … demanding their jewelry. According to a warrant we obtained, both of the men had handguns and pointed them at James.

According to the docs, one of the men snatched the chain off James’ neck … and they also took his Rolex.

The thieves fled to a nearby car … and when Derwin tried to give chase in his Rolls-Royce, he discovered 3 of his tires had been slashed.

Cops are still searching for the suspects.

First off, no one is making fun of someone allegedly pointing guns at them and robbing them. However, when you read the report that he wanted to chase them, but his Rolls-Royce had three tires slashed, that’s straight out of Hollywood. Literally.

We wrote back in May after the draft that perhaps both the Bucs and the Dolphins, who both could have used safety help for this season, may have made a mistake by passing on the former Noles star. The Rams got him with the 17th overall pick. Miami had even drafted Alabama safety Minkah Fitzpatrick instead of James at #11.

And Pro Football Focus pointed out here, that his 90.6 grade in pass coverage was #1 in their ranking formula for college safeties, and also his overall grade (92.1) on their scale ranked him #2. PFF had James ranked their fifth best player in the entire draft.

James, his representatives or the Chargers have still not commented on the robbery report.

    However, just like any other natures of business, you must first mull before getting in it over some things.
    Now that you are aware with the benefits of Manuka
    honey face gel, precisely what are you waiting for. There are skincare products available on the market which are comprised of honey his or her natural ingredients.
