Virginia Tech Pro Day set for March 14

BLACKSBURG - Virginia Tech will conduct its annual Pro Day for NFL coaches, scouts and personnel men Wednesday, March 14. Following weigh-in and measurements, the group of players will be tested in the bench press, broad jump and vertical jump at the Hokies’ weight room before on-field drills and the 40-yard dash take place in the Virginia Tech Indoor Practice Facility.

It is expected that graduating seniors and underclassmen who have declared for the NFL Draft will be in attendance with final participants subject to change. While all players in attendance will get to strut their stuff for NFL scouts, there’s no doubt that the following players will likely be on the list of “must-see” prospects for the personnel men in attendance.

LB Tremaine Edmunds
Projected by many draft pundits as a first-round pick, and by some as a potential Top 10 selection, Edmunds enjoyed his second straight 100-tackle campaign for the Hokies in 2017 as he led the team with 109 tackles (60 solo) tackles for loss (14), sacks (5.5) and forced fumbles (3). A third-team All-American and first-team All-ACC selection by the conference’s coaches and media, helped anchor a Virginia Tech defense that paced the Power Five with 21 Red Zone scores and allowed three shutouts, the most in the nation.

CB Brandon Facyson
Facyson racked up five pass breakups and 2.0 tackles for loss last season while helping lead a secondary that permitted an FBS-low 48.6 completion percentage. Last season, Facyson passed Brandon Flowers and Antone Exum in career passes defended since 1987. He has 44 career PDs. He participated in the East-West Shrine Game following the season.

LB Andrew Motuaupuaka
Motuapuaka was a key and steady component for the Hokies’ defense this past season. He finished the season ranked second on Tech’s defense and was 12th in the ACC with 92 total tackles. The Virginia Beach, Virginia native trailed only CB Greg Stroman for the team lead in passes defended with eight and racked up 11.5 tackles for loss, 3.5 sacks, six quarterback hurries, an interception, one fumble recovery and one forced fumble. A third-team All-ACC selection, Motuapuaka will leave Virginia Tech with his name in the top 10 in career tackles since 1987. He participated in the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl following the season.

With the help of Stroman and the rest of the Tech secondary, the Hokies finished the season second in the nation in third-down defense (26.2%).
