Three days after losing to Michigan in the Sugar Bowl, Virginia Tech running back David Wilson announced that he’ll be entering the NFL Draft this year.
Wilson made the announcement at a press conference in Blacksburg on Friday afternoon with Virginia Tech head coach Frank Beamer standing by his side. Andy Bitter of the Virginian-Pilot was at the announcement and reports that Wilson was given a second round grade by the NFL draft advisory board and that Wilson said he hopes to improve upon that standing with strong work at the combine.
Wilson ran for 1,709 yards and nine touchdowns during his junior season and was named second team All-American. Wilson also fumbled seven times, a concern he’ll likely have to address with NFL teams if he hopes to move into the first round come April.
