The Waiting Game

After attending the NFL Combine and West Virginia's Pro Day, Mountaineer running back Quincy Wilson can only watch and wait for the NFL Draft.

"I'm going to keep working out on my own, but that's about all I can do now," Wilson said after completing workouts for about 15 teams at West Virginia's Pro Day on Wednesday. "The scouts there still don't tell us much about what they are thinking.

"I talked to some of the position coaches, but they don't give any indications on what is going on. We just have to wait until draft day."

Wilson had a solid workout. He averaged 4.5 in his forty-yard dash times, recorded a 35" vertical leap, a 10-foot four-inch standing broad jump, and times of 4.3 seconds in the shuttle run and 6.9 seconds in the L-drill.

Those last two runs are desinged to measure quickness and spped in change of direction, something that the 40 doesn't take into account. The shuttle consists of a five yard sprint in one direction, 10 yards in the opposite direction, then five in the original direction, while the the L-drill involves angle cuts around cones.

Wilson says he hasn't given much thought yet to where he will watch the draft, or if he will watch it at all. He plans to go to Chicago over spring break to relax after the hectic schedule of the past month, but then will jump back into workouts prior to the draft.

Wilson is rated as the 13th best running back in the draft by TFY Draft Preview. He measured at 5-9 3/4 and 225 pounds at the NFL combine.
