HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - Three NFL teams were represented Friday at Joan C. Edwards Stadium for Marshall University's "Pro Day."
The Jaguars, Steelers and Colts all had representatives present to watch the Herd's top two standouts, quarterback/athlete Bernard Morris and center Doug Legursky.
"It's always good especially when a coach knows your name instead of calling you by your number," Morris said, following a good workout.
A handful of other former Marshall players worked out for the scouts.
Beckley, W.Va., native Legursky is listed as 6'3'', 311 pounds on Marshall's Web site. He is projected as a 5th round draft choice by nfldraftscout.com.
"I think i'm just a hard worker," Legursky said. "I keep my nose clean and stay out of trouble -- knock on wood."
Linebacker Josh Johnson worked out Friday, but was arrested early Sunday morning in Huntington, W.Va., on a traffic violation.
Johnson left the Marshall football program in February and declared himself eligible for the NFL draft.
The 2008 NFL Draft is April 26-27 in New York City.
I don't think a center will be drafted since Hartwig was signed....But Legursky is still my guy....They him have projected as a 5th rounder in this article...
