Versatility helps Wesco stand out | 2019 NFL Draft Preview

Former Mountaineer could play tight end, fullback at next level

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. - Before the NFL Draft process began, former WVU tight end Trevon Wesco said he got some good advice. 

“Just enjoy the whole process. It’s months. You’ve got a lot of interviews and things like that,” said Wesco. “You just want to enjoy the whole thing, which I’ve done. I feel good about the whole thing. I’m just having fun with it as much as I can.” 

After his performances at the Senior Bowl, NFL Combine and WVU Pro Day, Wesco has caught the attention of several scouts, coaches and analysts. He is currently projected as a late round pick by several NFL Draft experts and websites.

Wesco lined up as a fullback at the Senior Bowl, and he has tried to showcase his versatility as a tight end and fullback in the lead up to the draft. 

“I’m a two-in-one player. I can play tight end and fullback,” said Wesco. “Whatever they ask me to do, I’ve done through the whole process.”

That versatility has caught the eye of several experts, including Brian Baldinger of the NFL Network, who last month called Wesco the most versatile player in the draft: 

Wesco caught 26 passes for 366 yards and a touchdown in his final season for WVU. He’ll wait to hear his name called this week, along with former Mountaineer teammates Gary Jennings, Yodny Cajuste and others.
