Wednesday proved productive for three prospects from Illinois hoping to become first-round picks.
With 29 teams at the university’s pro day, DT Corey Liuget, LB Martez Wilson and RB Mikel LeShoure were the draws among 11 players working out indoors on FieldTurf.
Jets coach Rex Ryan and the Bears’ entire defensive staff were among those in attendance. The group on hand saw Liuget (6-foot-2 1/8, 301 pounds) and Wilson (6-3 3/4, 250) have special positional workouts, which will put them in position to potentially move into the late portion of the first round.
Wilson proved he can play in space and looked good in coverage. Meanwhile, Liuget’s quickness and agility were both apparent for a prospect his size.
LeShoure (5/11 3/4, 232) was solid in his position workout and should retain his status as a possible late first-round selection or early second-round choice.
All three players stood on their combine numbers.
