Marcus Davis, WR, Virginia Tech
Height: 6-3. Weight: 233. Arm: 32.68. Hand: 10.28. 40 Time: 4.56. Projected Round (2013): 4-6. 4/24/13: Davis had a solid Combine performance. He is a big wide out who has some deceptive speed. Davis was the Hokies No. 1 receiver in 2012 and would have even more production if quarterback Logan Thomas wasn't struggling with his accuracy all season. Davis hauled in 51 receptions for 953 yards and five touchdowns.
Davis was a backup to Danny Coale and Jarrett Boykin over the past few years. Davis had 30 catches for 510 yards and five touchdowns in 2011. He made 19 receptions for 239 yards and two touchdowns in 2010 as a sophomore.
Bruce Taylor, ILB, Virginia Tech
Height: 6-1. Weight: 237. Arm: 33.18. 40 Time: 5.01. Projected Round (2012): 5-7. 4/24/13: Taylor had 76 tackles, 10.5 tackles for a loss, one forced fumble, five passes broken up and 5.5 sacks in 2012.
8/31/12: Taylor was having a decent 2011 season before missing the final four games with an injury. He had 53 tackles with seven tackles for a loss and five sacks. Taylor had 91 tackles with 15.5 tackles for a loss and six sacks in 2010. He looks like he may fit best on the inside of a 3-4 defense at the next level.
Vinston Painter, OT, Virginia Tech
Height: 6-4. Weight: 306. Arm: 34. Hand: 9.88. Projected 40 Time: 5.25. Projected Round (2013): 6-7. 4/24/13: Painter started out his career at defensive tackle before being moved to the offensive line. He was a backup at tackle and guard for his first three seasons. As a senior, Painter won a starting spot and was an All-ACC Honorable Mention. He should probably move inside to guard in the NFL.
