WVU football players busy meeting with teams prior to 2016 NFL Draft

As the 2016 NFL Draft is now just a few weeks away, several Mountaineers who will hear their names called are busy racking up frequent flyer miles as they audition for teams all over the country. Here is where they’ve been.

With the NFL Combine and WVU’s pro day in our rear view mirror, players like Karl Joseph, K.J. Dillon, Nick Kwiatkoski and Wendell Smallwood are putting their best feet forward in hopes that they’ll move up draft boards. On Monday, our Travis Stone took a look at each prospect and predicted where they will land. You can read his stellar article here.¬†
