Yale RB Tyler Varga’s NFL Draft stock rising; where will he land?

(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.
