2022 NFL Draft Prospect Report: Western Michigan Broncos

NFL: Scouting Combine Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Western Michigan held their Pro Day on March 16, with 13 players showing off their talents in front of a reported crowd of 35 scouts and coaches from 30 NFL teams.

Curiously, the university did not release the workout numbers, citing a lack of standard numbers due to not recording the workouts with electronics, per MLive.

All numbers are courtesy of both ProScout.com and Kent Lee Platte of the Pro Football Network. Relative Athletic Scores are used with express written permission, and can be found at https://RAS.football.

Below are the numbers and relative athletic scores (when available) for all WMU prospects in this year’s player pool. Any numbers with a “u” beside them are considered unofficial.
