Mountaineers in the Pros

NFL Draft Preview: WVU’s Darius Stills and Tony Fields Projected as Day-Three Selections



With the NFL Draft set for this Thursday, there two former West Virginia Mountaineers widely projected to be selected; defensive tackle Darius Stills and linebacker Tony Fields II.

Draft experts are projecting both Stills and Fields to be selected on day three of the draft, Saturday, in rounds 4-7. NFL Mock Draft Database, which aggregates over 1,000 mock drafts, has Stills ranked as the 176th-overall prospect and Fields at 193. 176 puts Stills in the fifth round and 193 lands Fields in the sixth.

Following WVU’s pro day last month, Stills said he had heard from about one-third of NFL teams with the Cincinnati Bengals the most interested early on. Fields, on the other hand, said he had talked to all 32 teams.

Below are links to a few recent seven-round mock drafts and where they have Stills and Fields being selected.
