Wednesday figures to be a pretty big day for Duke safety Jeremy Cash as the 2015 ACC Defensive Player of the Year will finally do a full workout for teams.
Cash, who recorded 100-plus tackles for the third straight year in 2015, was unable to do much of anything at the 2016 NFL Scouting Combine and his school’s pro day due to him being limited by wrist and hamstring injuries. Cash, however, did do 13 reps on the bench at his pro day.
The Pittsburgh Steelers brought Cash in for a pre-draft visit earlier this month so there’s a good chance they’ll have someone present Wednesday at his personal workout. Strangely enough, Cash and Steelers inside linebacker Ryan Shazier were both teammates in high school. They both wound up going to Ohio State but Cash decided to transfer to Duke after his freshman year.
Cash is regarded by many as a day-two prospect who could wind up hearing his name called as early as the late part of the second round. In reality, Cash will be drafted in either the third or fourth rounds.
