Bobby Wagner and Matt Veldman shined at the pro days held by Utah State and North Dakota State, respectively.
Utah State linebacker Bobby Wagner, who some draft experts had projected as a first- or second-round pick, will not work out at this weekend’s NFL Scouting Combine after falling ill with pneumonia, FoxSports.com reported Thursday.
Defensive back Brandon Burton and a trio of linemen took center stage at Utah’s pro day on Tuesday.
Utah State hasn’t had a player selected in the NFL Draft since 2007, when G Shawn Murphy and WR Kevin Robinson were chosen in the fourth and sixth rounds respectively, but that didn’t stop 14 NFL teams from showing up March 3 in hopes of finding the next Donald Penn. The Buccaneers offensive tackle and former Aggie was named to his first Pro Bowl in 2010 despite going undrafted in 2007.
Northern Illinois was among three teams holding pro day workouts on Friday, and that meant DE/LB Larry English (6-2 1/2, 251 pounds) was front and center. Gil Brandt also has updates on Mississippi State and Utah State.
