Fresno State WR/PR Devon Wylie has tweeted that he visited the Eagles facility yesterday for a pre draft workout. He's a small guy at 5-9, 187 but he's blazing fast. He ran a 4.39 at the combine and has run as low as a 4.33. He only started 5 games at WR for Fresno State last year, but did lead the team with 56 catches. That said, the main thing that has likely gotten the NFL's attention is his return ability.
Last year as the Bulldogs full time return man he took two back for TDs, including a beauty against Nebraska that we've got video of after the jump.
His raw speed, willingness to go over the middle and general elusiveness should mean that he could eventually contribute as a WR as well. He was dangerous from the slot in college and could be useful there in the NFL. He does have some injury issues and there are doubts as to whether he could hold up if he used on a regular basis at the NFL level. As a return man though, he's arguably the best in this class.
He's projected to be taken anywhere from the 4th-6th round.
