Earl Watford vying to be James Madison’s first draft pick since 2010

Representatives from seven NFL teams gathered at James Madison’s pro day on March 18, where six players — joined by some from area small schools such as Virginia Military Institute and Norfolk State — worked out outdoors on FieldTurf.

Earl Watford, G (6-foot-3 5/8, 301) — Watford was at the NFL Scouting Combine, and kept his numbers posted in Indy. He did position drills only. Watford has 34-inch arms, which is long for a lineman.

James Madison hasn’t had a player selected in the NFL draft since 2010 (when both linebacker Arthur Moats — by the Buffalo Bills — and return specialist Scotty McGee — by the Jacksonville Jaguars — were picked in the sixth round). The most famous James Madison alums to have played in the NFL are defensive end Charles Haley (a fourth-round draft pick in 1986) and Gary Clark (a supplemental draft pick in 1984).
