No. Shepherd is the real deal. Not sure what JMon is. Shepherd is one of those guys who will out work anyone, who will out study anyone, out play anyone simply for the love of the game. I'm 100% convinced of this. What a great character to go undrafted, unsigned, through that entire process, and learn the playbook of Matt LaFleur faster than any of the QBs.
That says something about the man. He wants this badly, though, much like Brooks, coming in with a better skill set, I would imagine.
