If NFL teams are looking for good character, it certainly appears draft prospect Isaiah Spiller has that in spades.

The former Klein Collins High School and Texas A&M star running back arrived in Buffalo for a pre-draft visit with the Bills and made an instant impression.

Twitter user @BuffaloStar23 described what happened when the luggage got stuck at the Buffalo airport.

Spiller responded later on Monday evening by tweeting, “That’s just how I was raised!!”

Spiller is listed by many prognosticators as one of the top running backs in the upcoming draft. This past season, while splitting time in the backfield with Devon Achane, Spiller averaged over five-and-a-half yards a carry, finishing with 1200 all-purpose yards and seven touchdowns combining rushing and receiving and being named to the All-SEC second team. Spiller’s draft preparation was recently featured by KPRC 2′s Ari Alexander.

The NFL Draft takes place this year from April 28-30.
