Former Oklahoma State quarterback Brandon Weeden

Former Oklahoma State quarterback Brandon Weeden has been working out at the Athletes' Performance Institute in Phoenix, Arizona in preparation for the NFL Combine and Draft.

Former Oklahoma State quarterback Brandon Weeden has one of the most intriguing stories of the players who are entering the 2012 NFL Draft.

Ten years ago, Weeden was drafted in the second round of the 2002 Major League Baseball Draft by the New York Yankees, the first selection for the team. After his professional baseball career stalled a few years later, Weeden knew he wasn't finished with sports.

In 2007, Weeden enrolled at Oklahoma State, and three seasons later, found himself as the starting quarterback for the Cowboys.

In his two seasons as the starter, Weeden set records for season passing yards, total offense, completion percentage, and completed passes, and also set records for passing yards and completions in a single game (versus Baylor in 2010).

In 2011, fans of the program created a Heisman campaign featuring Weeden and receiver Justin Blackmon and the quarterback finished his career with the Cowboys in a 41-38 Fiesta Bowl win over the Stanford Cardinal.

With his collegiate career behind him, Weeden talks with FOX Sports NEXT about his journey through sports, his time with the Cowboys, his training, and what's next for this unconventional quarterback:
