WSU will hold its annual Pro Day for its NFL Draft prospects on Thursday, March 10, the school announced today.
Presumably participating would be WSU's primary NFL Draft prospects -- offensive lineman Joe Dahl, defensive lineman Destiny Vaeao and wide receiver Dom Williams. Dahl is considered the top prospect of the bunch, and he has been invited to the NFL Combine, which runs from Feb. 23-26.
Oddly, Vaeao -- who had a stellar showing at the NFLPA Bowl -- did not get an invitation to the combine, so this will be his best shot at impressing scouts leading up to the draft. You can bet scouts will be paying close attention to how he looks.
It also will be Williams' opportunity to impress; his performance was fairly quiet at the NFLPA Bowl. That's not uncommon for receivers, who are working with unfamiliar quarterbacks, so getting in an environment where a QB he knows is launching the balls could help him out. It's unclear if Luke Falk will be able to throw to him without jeopardizing his eligibility, but this memorandum from the NCAA seems to suggest it's OK as long as Falk doesn't miss any class.
Might there also be a chance that Connor Halliday shows up to get himself some face time with scouts in an effort to resurrect his career? That would be interesting.
Other players with pro aspirations who also could participate might include offensive lineman Gunnar Eklund, defensive lineman Darryl Paulo, and linebackers Kache Palacio, Ivan McLennan and Jeremiah Allison.
