Some prominent members of WSU's Sun Bowl champion football team will be trying to impress NFL scouts in today's pro day in Pullman. Eleven Cougars will be participating with the most prominent being Joe Dahl, Destiny Vaeao and Dom Williams. These are the three prospects that are considered to have the best chance of getting drafted. The players will do numerous drills and testing to prove their worth to pro scouts.
Dahl is the Cougar with most draft buzz as he could potentially go as high as the second round after a terrific combine performance. He had the top performances of any offensive lineman in the 40 yard dash, bench press and broad jump. He also impressed in 1 on 1 drills according to the NFL Network. Dahl probably just needs to keep doing what he's been doing at this point.
The Pro Day is more critical for prospects such as Vaeao and Williams who are on the bubble at this point to be drafted. Without a combine invite, this is the best chance for these two to wow the scouts and personnel directors who will be in attendance. Both possess the size to play at the highest level so an outstanding 40 time and agility drills could push them in to the conversation to be picked. This should be a huge day for their professional future.
One sleeper out of this group could be Ivan McClennan. The outside linebacker was considered a freakish athlete coming out the junior college ranks. It will interesting to see if he puts up some impressive numbers tomorrow whether a team will take a chance on him based on his athletic potential.
Good luck to all these great Cougars participating today who have given us some great moments over the last 4 years.
