Former Mountaineers set for Pro Day
It's that time of year again. Appalachian State is hosting its annual pro day in Boone Monday and a number of former Mountaineers will be looking to impress the scouts in attendance.
Recent graduates Demetrius McCray and Sam Martin are among those participating and serve as two of the most intriguing prospects for the NFL Draft. Both grabbed the attention of NFL scouts throughout the season with their performances, leading to a number of organizations to send someone to the High Country to get closer looks on more than one occasion.
Both Martin and McCray have received chatter about being taken in the Draft, making it a possibility the Mountaineers will have yet another player's name called before the rookie free agency period gets underway.
ASU will also have the likes of Jeremy Kimbrough, Troy Sanders, Rod Chisholm and Steven Miller participating in the event.
Kimbrough, though somewhat undersized, drew interest from NFL teams throughout his career based on his sheer feel for the game and natural instincts. Sanders, also earned some looks with his hard hitting and nose for the football.
For Chisholm, having not been in a starting role at ASU, will get his opportunity to impress scouts as well. Though he's not projected to be picked in April's Draft, the Charlotte native will have the opportunity to push himself into a position to be picked up as a free agent.
Miller, who had a stellar senior season at ASU, will also be looking to get NFL scouts to disregard his size and consider him for a potential free agency signing.
Also of note, former Appalachian State safety Mark LeGree will be participating in the event. LeGree, who was drafted in the fifth round of the 2011 Draft by the Seattle Seahawks upon his graduation, will be hoping to grab the attention of NFL teams as well.
LeGree was released by Seattle on September 3, 2011 following training camp, and would later sign practice squad deals with five other NFL teams over the next year and a half. He's spent time with the Arizona Cardinals, San Francisco 49ers, New York Jets, Chicago Bears and Atlanta Falcons.
