    WVU Players to Draft

    All of them of course.

    Gary Jennings WR WVU - 6'1 214 - 4.42 forty

    Jennings' role with the Mountaineers has grown throughout his career in Morgantown. He played in 13 games as a reserve receiver (7-116-16.6, one TD) and served as the team's top punt returner (13-69-5.3; also 5-117-23.4 kick returns) his freshman year. Jennings started once at receiver in 2016 (10-165-16.5, two TD in 13 games) but was still primarily a punt returner (21-39-1.9). A spot opened up as a starting receiver in 2017, and Jennings took full advantage, earning second-team All-Big 12 honors and winning the team's Offensive Player of the Year award. He ranked fourth in the country with 97 receptions, which covered 1,096 yards, and scored once. Jennings' numbers were down in 2018 (54-917-17.0, 13 TD in 11 games, eight starts), partially because he fought a high ankle sprain the second half of the season. He was still productive enough to earn honorable mention All-Big 12 accolades. Jennings sat out the team's bowl game to rest his ankle and prepare for the draft.


    Trevon Wesco TE WVU - 6'3 267 - 4.89 forty

    Wesco is a Martinsburg, W.V., native who was all-state in football and basketball at Musselman High School. He began his collegiate career at Lackawanna College, catching five passes for 94 yards (9.4 average) as a freshman and redshirting the following year due to injury. He has an NFL build that he used well while blocking for the Mountaineers the past three seasons. He lacked a resume as a receiver, however, until his senior season. He caught just one pass in each of the 2016 (6-yard touchdown) and 2017 (1 yard) seasons seasons before finishing fourth on the squad with 366 receiving yards on 26 catches (14.1 average) scoring once. Big 12 coaches named him first-team all-conference for his play. He became a major contributor on offense in 2018.

    David Sills WR WVU - 6'3 211 - 4.57 forty

    Sills' story is well-known in college football circles. He was offered a scholarship by then-USC head coach Lane Kiffin at the age of 13 and started on varsity as an eighth-grader. Sills broke a knuckle on his throwing hand as a junior, which changed his throwing motion. He also suffered an ankle injury his senior year, missing all but three games. West Virginia offered him a scholarship, but he moved to receiver for his freshman year, playing in eight games and making seven catches for 131 yards (18.7 average) and two touchdowns. Sills caught the game-winning touchdown against Arizona State in the Cactus Bowl that season. However, he still wanted to play quarterback, so he transferred to El Camino College, where he was an all-conference signal-caller (1,636 yards, 15 TD). That performance wasn't enough to convince an FBS school to offer him as a quarterback, so he returned to WVU to play receiver. That proved to be the correct move, as he and new Mountaineers quarterback Will Grier combined 60 times for 980 yards (16.3 average) in 13 games. Sills also tied for the nation's best mark with 18 receiving touchdowns, leading him to be named a finalist for the Fred Biletnikoff Award, a second-team Associated Press All-American, and first-team All-Big selection. Sills ranked second in the country with 15 receiving touchdowns in 2018, and even though his overall production decreased (65-986-15.2), he was still an Associated Press third-team All-American and first-team All-Big 12 pick for his efforts. He started all 12 games for WVU his senior year, suiting up for the bowl game despite the fact others bowed out to prepare for the draft.

    David Long LB WVU - 5'11 227 - 4.45 forty according to the combine site. Don't remember him running though.

    Mountaineer coaches wooed Long out of Ohio, where he was a honorable mention all-state pick his senior season (110 tackles, 16 for loss, three sacks). Long showed up strong in the Russell Athletic Bowl against Miami his redshirt freshman year, making 11 tackles. A preseason knee injury kept Long out of the first four games of the 2017 season, but he won the team's Defensive Player of the Year award and became an honorable mention All-Big 12 pick based on his play in starts at the Will linebacker spot the final nine weeks (76 tackles, team-high 16.5 for loss, four sacks, four pass breakups). Long was the Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year and a second-team AP All-American as a redshirt junior, starting all 12 games and leading the Mountaineers with 111 tackles, 19 for loss, and eight sacks. He also broke up four passes and forced one fumble during the year.

    Yeah, I still love Jennings by #3. Here's a decent look at some WVU offensive stars....



    I say it all the effin' time too, but I'll say it again. Petteway is the best back on the team, he will be a very solid NFL back.... next year.
