Logan Thomas was supposed to be the Hokies Top Prospect this spring for the NFL draft, but a down year resulted in him returning to the Hokies for his senior season.
Taking Thomas’s spot as the top prospect from Virginia Tech this year is wide receiver Corey Fuller who is projected to go in the top five rounds and is ranked the 21st best receiver in the draft.
Another draft hopeful Marcus Davis is also a wide receiver from Tech projected to be drafted in the 6th round.
Vinston Painter, offensive tackle, has flashed his skills in the NFL combine and has come out of nowhere to now be drafted as high as in the third round according to cbssports.com.
Draft hopeful offensive tackle Nick Becton, is hoping he will hear his name called this upcoming weekend in the later rounds of the draft. It has become clear that if he doesn’t get drafted he will be picked up through free agency.
Whether or not these players get drafted, they will be picked up through free agency and they will compete for a roster spot in 2013.
