BLACKSBURG – In a news conference at Lane Stadium last week, junior running back David Wilson announced that he would forgo his senior season at Virginia Tech to enter the NFL Draft.
Wilson, who was surrounded by his family and coaches and dressed in a coat and tie, ran for 1,709 yards this season, breaking Ryan Williams single season rushing record of 1,655 yards set in 2009.
The ACC Player of the Year is projected to be the third running back taken in the draft by ESPN analyst Todd Mcshay, likely late first or early second round, and could better his stock at the NFL combine.
Earlier in the week, Jayron Hosley, a junior cornerback, announced he would enter the draft.
