Hot prospect Wentz hopes his attention rubs off on teammates

Publish date:

FARGO, N.D. (AP) Top-flight NFL draft prospect Carson Wentz naturally owned the spotlight at North Dakota State University's pro day, but the Bison quarterback hopes there were a few rays left for his teammates.

Wentz was one of about a dozen players who performed in front of pro scouts Thursday at the Fargodome. The Bismarck, North Dakota, native unofficially completed 63 of 65 passing attempts in a half-hour drill that had him throwing balls to receivers running a variety of routes.

Wentz says he was happy with his performance and the opportunity to mark off the last box in a pre-draft season that has included the Senior Bowl, NFL combine and pro day. He says he was ''most excited'' about the possibility of the added attention benefiting his NDSU teammates.
