NFL tight end prospect Mitchell Wilcox just took a ball straight to the face in his combine workout … and it looked like it hurt like HELL!!!
The former USF standout was going through the famous gauntlet drill Thursday … when for some reason, he didn’t put his hands up before the third pass was thrown.
You can see the clip … the fastball hits him right in the dome — and it’s pretty clear the shot didn’t feel great.
To Wilcox’s credit, he was able to finish the drill and is still out there chugging along — although the damage to his face AND his NFL future might already be done.
Aside from getting hit in the noggin in front of a bunch of scouts … Wilcox ran a slow 4.88 40-yard dash time and stumbled through other parts of his workout as well.
It ain’t exactly a great look for the 23-year-old — but there is hope … remember the last dude who embarrassed himself in front of a national audience at the combine?
Yeah, Chris Jones is a Super Bowl champ now!!!
