Combine Invites

According to multiple reports, five Hokie seniors have gotten invites to the NFL Combine: Marcus Davis, Bruce Taylor, Corey Fuller, Nick Becton and Vincent Painter. Obviously if Logan Thomas, James Gayle or Antone Exum declared, they would be invited too.

This may have sounded crazy in August, but I think Painter has a legitimate shot to be the highest drafted Tech senior in April. The man is not only built like a tank, well more like an aircraft carrier, but has tons of measurables that will wow scouts in Indianapolis. Of course if Marcus Davis goes all Stephen Hill in his workouts he could go even higher, but I wouldn't be shocked Painter raises his stock enough to go early round 4, maybe even earlier. Teams love athletic tackles.

But congratulations to all five guys, they have earned it after surviving this season.

Nick Becton

I think he will suprise some people and get picked higher than most expect

Logan 3:16

Bold Prediction

Corey Fuller will be drafted before Marcus Davis.

You heard it here first.

Wrong

The Raiders use their 3rd pick in the NFL draft on Marcus Davis. They need somebody with crazy ups to complement Darius Heyward-Bey's speed.

Davis is going to look great at the combine

And some team will ignore the film on him and draft him about 2 rounds too high.

Really happy to hear that about Corey Fuller.

Marcus Davis =Freak

Once Marcus Davis goes to the combine and performs off the charts, which he will cause he's a freak of nature, scouts will be drooling over this kid!

Dat-Boy

they will risk a high pick

on Marcus because of his upside. Look at the number of Hokie receivers that have done well enough in the NFL despite Stiney.

And WR's are more likely to come in and produce numbers in the first few years and not be a project. This kid is a freak, and if Meangelo can be a "star", so can Marcus.

Who knows how good Becton and Painter can be under decent coaching.

Corey Fuller is going to be a really good NFL receiver. He has some great speed from his track days, and this year he was our best receiver over the middle. He had great hands too. Marcus Davis will probably be drafted higher just because he's a freak, but I think Fuller will be a better player.

Rip his freaking head off!

I agree, Marcus is athletic as shit but he has always had trouble holding onto the ball and I doubt that is going to change. Corey improved exponentially this year, and with more experience I see him becoming a very consistent starting receiver on an NFL team.
