Virginia Tech can extend draft streak to 20 years

Representatives from 26 NFL teams gathered at Virginia Tech’s pro day on March 20, where 13 Hokies players went through a workout indoors on AstroTurf. AstroTurf, it should be noted, is a faster surface than natural grass or even FieldTurf.

Virginia Tech has had a player selected in every NFL draft going back to 1994.

Nick Becton, OT (6-foot-5 1/2, 321 pounds) — Becton — who stood on his numbers from the NFL Scouting Combine — just did positional drills. The 2012 season was Becton’s first as a starter, and is a developmental type player for the NFL.

Marcus Davis, WR (6-3 1/2, 226) — Davis ran the 40-yard dash in 4.50 and 4.48 seconds. He had a 39-inch vertical jump and did the short shuttle in 4.20 seconds. Davis really worked out well.

Corey Fuller, WR (6-2 3/8, 197) — Fuller ran the short shuttle in 4.45 seconds and did the three-cone drill in 7.17 seconds. He stood on the rest of his numbers from the combine. Fuller also had a good positional workout.

Vinston Painter, OT (6-4 3/4, 301) — Painter stood on all of his numbers from the combine and did positional drills only.

Bruce Taylor, ILB (6-1 3/8, 236) — Taylor ran the 40 in 4.93 and 4.95 seconds. He had a 32 1/2-inch vertical jump and a 9-foot-6 broad jump. He did the short shuttle in 4.35 seconds, and opted not to run the three-cone drill. Taylor also did positional drills.
