Six Mountaineers will descend upon Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis next week for this year’s annual NFL Scouting Combine to audition for the NFL. Here is what to expect.
In recent years, Mountaineers like Bruce Irvin and Tavon Austin grabbed headlines with their on-field performances and rocketed up the draft boards.
This year’s candidates looking to make a great impression are Karl Joseph, K.J. Dillon, Nick Kwiatkoski, Nick O’Toole, Darryl Worley, and Wendell Smallwood.
The event will take place from Feb. 23-29 and the NFL Network will have full coverage.
Of the Mountaineers, Smallwood and O’Toole will be first up. They will do media interviews on Wednesday and will have their on-field workouts on Friday.
Kwiatkoski will interview with the linebackers on Friday and go through the drills on Sunday.
Joseph, Dillon, and Worley will close out the event on Monday with their on-field workouts.
Joseph is the most heralded prospect in this class for the Mountaineers, and several draft pundits like Mike Mayock believe that, despite his injury, he is the top safety prospect in this draft class.
