West Virginia linebacker Tony Fields

Selected: Pick No. 153 in the fifth round by the Cleveland Browns

Contract: $3,809,752 over four seasons

Fields represented the only West Virginia player that was selected in the 2021 NFL Draft and settles into a spot where he could see the field early given the need for linebackers in Cleveland. The versatile linebacker could end up at several different spots in the NFL and brings plenty of athleticism to that level.

West Virginia defensive tackle Darius Stills

Signed: Las Vegas Raiders

Contract: Three years, $2,425,000

It was a surprise in the first place that Stills wasn't drafted after a consensus all-American season in his final year at West Virginia and testing well at the combine for his position. But other team's loss is the Raiders gain as they quickly inked him to a free agent contract after the draft had been completed. Stills is an impressive defensive lineman that plays active and is coming off a season where he racked up up 25 tackles, 3.5 sacks, 7.5 tackles for loss and an interception in ten games.

West Virginia offensive lineman Mike Brown

Signed: New Orleans Saints

Contract: Three years, $2,425,000

Brown is an interesting story in the sense that he didn't play a snap of high school football but continued to get better and better at junior college and then West Virginia. Finished his career as a starter and was one of the most consistent offensive linemen on the entire roster. Has the size, strength and athleticism on the line that made him a natural fit for an NFL roster and now it will be up to him to stay there.

West Virginia wide receiver T.J. Simmons

Signed: Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Contract: Three years, $2,425,000

Simmons was a solid contributor over his time at West Virginia and was a wide receiver that truly embraced the physical elements of the game such as blocking. He trimmed down his 40-time at his pro day and now has an opportunity at the next level after signing on with the defending Super Bowl champions.
