Virginia Tech didn’t have a very good showing in the 2009 NFL draft but of course, they really only had a handful of players that had a shot of getting drafted.
Macho Harris was the only Hokie to get his name called on that weekend as he was selected in the fifth round and went to the Philadelphia Eagles. Sean Glennon, Orion Martin, and Ryan Shuman have all worked out for NFL teams and are looking to get a free agent contract sometime soon.
Nick Marshman has also recently worked out for a team in hopes that he can earn a free agent contract.
However, in 2010 Tech should be well represented on draft day as they have few players that could be drafted in the first round.
The Hokies won’t be as well represented as they were in 2008 when they had eight players drafted along with five players signing a free agent contract but this year could come fairly close with up to seven players that could get their names called next April.
Sergio Render and Kam Chancellor will be names thrown around next year as Render is predicted to be one of the top offensive guards to go off the board and Chancellor will be one of the top three safeties to be taken as well.
The Hokies then have a host of other players that could see their names pop up on Sunday.
Defensive tackle Cordarrow Thompson, offensive tackle Ed Wang, defensive end Nekos Brown, cornerback Stephen Virgil, linebacker Cam Martin, and punter Brent Bowden all have the opportunity to make it to the next level depending on how this season unfolds and how they all do at the NFL combine next year.
So now, let’s dive in and look at each one of these players individually and see where they actually project to go in next years NFL Draft.
