Draft Scout Will Compton News
10/15/14 - LB Will Compton was only credited with three tackles at Arizona in his first career start in place of the injured Perry Riley, but that was still a huge leap from being on the practice squad for all but the final game as an undrafted rookie in 2013.
"It was a good feeling," Compton said. "But you want to be hard on yourself and I thought there were a couple of times I could have pulled my trigger better. As the game went on, I got more comfortable."
09/01/13 - LB Will Compton was waived by the Redskins Saturday.
03/08/13 - 2013 Nebraska Pro Day: Former Nebraska linebacker Will Compton wore the biggest smile of all the Huskers working out at Thursday's Pro Day. He ran a 4.54 40-yard dash, jumped 32 inches in the vertical, more than nine feet in the broad jump, and finished with 24 repetitions in the 225-pound bench press. Of the 15 scouts on hand, Compton said, several had strong feedback. “I helped myself out a lot,” Compton said. “I got a bunch of great feedback. I'm humbled and flattered. I can't wait to go call my parents.”
After the workout, a Cincinnati Bengals scout took Compton upstairs in the Hawks Championship facility and had him design and break down defenses. Compton said he'd already received feedback from NFL linebacker Lavonte David that Nebraska's defenders were ahead of the game in understanding pro schemes. “The way Bo (Pelini) does things here, you're just so set up to succeed in the NFL,” Compton said. “Lavonte said he was teaching guys right when he walked in (to the NFL).” Compton said he's heard he's likely a late-rounder or a preferred free agent target. - Sam McKewon and Rich Kaipust, World-Herald News
