NFL Draft rumors: Atlanta Falcons, 22 other teams attend Terrance West pro day


The NFL Draft is just around the corner and potential top picks are holding their pro days to try and solidify their status as stud options. While everyone has a pro day, it’s the one last chance for fringe top picks to make their mark and that’s exactly what Towson running back Terrance West did for his pro day this week.

In case you still haven’t heard of West, he’s the Towson standout who is likely to be one of the top running backs drafted this May. If you doubt the interest in him, look no further than the fact that 22 NFL teams attended his pro day to get a closer look at him.

Per Jason La Canfora:

There were scouts or coaches from at least 22 organizations present — the Saints had multiple representatives on hand. After reaching the FCS title game and having a running back, Terrance West, open even more eyes with a strong performance at the combine, suddenly this relative football outpost was at least something of an NFL hub for a good four hours as the scouts made their way back and forth from one part of the sports complex to the next.

It’s unclear just how high he’ll go, as running backs aren’t as valuable in the draft as they used to be, but he’s no doubt a top pick at his position. We won’t know until May when West is drafted, but it’s starting to look like it could be early and he could be the first running back off the board.
