There may not have been 100-plus media members on sight -- as was the case with some pro days -- but a pair of ACC schools also welcomed pro scouts to campus Wednesday. And said scouts likely came away impressed with what they saw.
Boston College's Luke Kuechly was one of 32 Boston-area players to work out in front of 27 teams, shining in positional drills while sticking with the numbers he put up at last month's NFL combine.
“I haven’t done a whole lot of man coverage so I can’t tell people I’m off the charts with it,’’ Kuechly told reporters. “It’s one of those things where I think it’s a lot of technique work -- we worked on it a little down in Florida, just different techniques -- but I think it’s something I just have to just pick up on the fly.’’
At North Carolina State, T.J. Graham took advantage of the familiar confines to improve his route running, one of the bigger concerns surrounding the receiver since the combine. Graham ran a 4.41 40 in Indianapolis and did not participate in timed drills Wednesday. He is expected to be a middle-round pick during next month's draft.
With familiar faces in town for the event, the Wolfpack held their annual awards dinner the night before. Not surprisingly, David Amerson won the Governor's Award, which serves as the team's MVP award and is the only honor voted on by the entire team.
Amerson also won the team's most valuable defensive back award, and Graham took the Gary Rowe Award for most receptions.
