Bryce Ford-Wheaton is quickly making a name for himself.

Following a WVU career that saw him tally 143 catches for 1,867 yards and 15 touchdowns, Ford-Wheaton put on one of the best performances at the 2023 NFL Combine.

According to Relative Athletic Score (RAS), Ford-Wheaton scored a 9.96 out of a possible 10 with his Combine stats.

Here are the some of the numbers Ford-Wheaton put up in front of NFL scouts:

40-yard dash = 4.38

20-yard split = 2.58

10-yard split = 1.52

Vertical = 41


In three of the possible four categories, Ford-Wheaton graded out as “elite,” with his “Composite Agility” grading out as “good.”


This places him as the 13th-highest graded receiver since 1987 – out of a possible 2,875 players.

Not a bad feat for a player that has been mostly overlooked throughout his career.

Ford-Wheaton will wait to hear his name called at the 2023 NFL Draft scheduled for April 27th through April 29th.
