(WTNH)–Yale running back Tyler Varga’s NFL Draft stock is rising. There has been lots of talk this week about the draft, which begins on Thursday. Here in Connecticut, we’ve got a couple of guys who could be selected early.
UConn’s Byron Jones has been mentioned as a possible first-rounder, and has been invited to attend the draft. after a world-record breaking performance at the NFL Combine. (No kidding).
But Varga has been getting plenty of attention, too. He’s been mentioned as a possible fourth or fifth-rounder. Varga was in our SportzEdge studios recently, and he talked a little bit about what he expects this weekend.
“It’s an exciting time, it’s a childhood dream sort of on the verge of being fulfilled,” Varga said. “What’s done is done, I’ve proven what I think I need to prove, and we’ll see which teams go after me in the draft.”
Coming up tonight on SportzEdge (10:45 pm on myTV9): Varga’s agent, Joe Linta talks about his chances and much more. Don’t miss that.
