"The NFL Scouting Combine starts Wednesday in Indianapolis. The Hokies have five players who will attend -- Marcus Davis, Corey Fuller, Bruce Taylor, Nick Becton and Vinston Painter.
As I wrote last week, Mel Kiper Jr. thinks Fuller or Davis will be the first Hokies off the board.
Not all projections are the same, though. Here's a glimpse at those players' draft stock heading into the combine. These rankings are courtesy of NFLDraftScout.com. The rankings listed are by position, with a round projection at the end."
Corey Fuller, Virginia Tech, Round 5
Marcus Davis, Virginia Tech, Round 7
Bruce Taylor, Virginia Tech, Round 6
Nick Becton, Virginia Tech, Round 7-FA
Vinston Painter, Virginia Tech, N/A
"Strong safeties (one more, just because I found it interesting)
Alonzo Tweedy, Virginia Tech, Round 7-FA"
"For what it's worth, the site gives the Hokies' prospects the following overall rankings: Fuller (165), Taylor (205), Davis (253), Tweedy (312), Becton (323) and Painter (434)."
