Here’s a rundown of some NFL prospects expected to test well at the NFL Scouting Combine this week courtesy of National Football Post.
The list includes players at multiple positions. The one I find most interesting is Illinois pass rusher Whitney Mercilus. Known as a physical freak it’s not surprising to see him on this list. Knocked for being a one-year wonder it’ll be interesting to see what a strong workout at the Combine can do for his draft stock.
ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper believes it could solidify Mercilus as a late first-round pick knowing the DE class is not a deep one this year.
“If his workouts equate to what they need to be and what they think he is I think he goes between 22 and 32,” Kiper said of Mercilus.
