Mountaineers in the Final CBSSports NFL Draft Rankings

The NFL Draft begins tonight! There may not be tens of thousands of people packed in downtown Nashville like last year, but NFL teams will still move forward by making their picks from a remote location – just like you and I do with our mock drafts each year. That doesn’t change the fact that hundreds of former college stars will be come professionals over the course of the next three days. CBSSports has done their due diligence and taken the time to rank all of the players they deem likely to be taken before Saturday evening. Here’s a look at where former Mountaineers are in those rankings.

Kenny Robinson – No. 17 safety, No. 218 overall

Robinson was an All-Big 12 safety that came right in at West Virginia and contributed as a true freshman. His sophomore year, he was a leader of the defense and was expected to be one of the top defensive backs in the entire country last season. Instead, he was kicked out of school for cheating and took a detour through the XFL, wher ehe played well this past spring and kept the NFL’s attention.

Colton McKivitz – No. 47 offensive lineman, No. 247 overall

McKivitz was a four-year starter who played in 50 games and started 47 of them. He earned Big 12 Conference Offensive Lineman of the Year in 2019, and All-American honors from Walter Camp (Second) and The Associated Press (Third). After impressing on the right side of the line for most of his career, he stepped up and showed his skills at left tackle this past season.

Kennedy McKoy – No. 38 running back, No. 439 overall

McKoy came right in made a mark as a true freshman, averaging 6.5 yards per carry. He contributed all four seasons in a crowded backfield, finishing his career with 2,720 yards from scrimmage and 25 total touchdowns. The downside for McKoy is that the worst of his four years was his senior season, as he averaged just 3.3 yards per carry.

Keith Washington – No. 48 cornerback, No. 461 overall

Washington began his career at Michigan, where he lettered as a redshirt freshman. After bouncing back through junior college, he ended up at West Virginia as a redshirt junior. In Morgantown, he started 17 games and totaled six interceptions and eighteen pass breakups.

Josh Norwood – No. 67 cornerback, No. 638 overall

Norwood began his career at Ohio State, where he played in eleven games as a redshirt freshman. After bouncing back through junior college, he started twenty games at West Virginia the last two seasons. He split those evenly among safety and cornerback and was one of the more versatile players on the defense. While he only had one interception, he did break up 18 passes as a Mountaineer.

George Campbell – No. 83 wide receiver, No. 641 overall

Campbell is a former five-star recruit that had his career sidetracked by numerous injuries at Florida State, severely limiting his time on the field. He grad transferred to West Virginia last summer and scored seven touchdowns on just 19 catches, while averaging nearly 25 yards per grab. He was awarded a sixth year of eligibility, but chose to go pro.

The 2020 NFL Draft kicks off at 8:00PM ET on ESPN and the NFL Network. The second and third rounds will take place on Friday night at 7:00PM ET, with the fourth through seventh rounds occurring on Saturday starting at 12:00PM ET.
