VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) - Several Hampton Roads athletes are expected to be taken in the NFL draft and three of them are from the same high school.
They are all former teammates at Ocean Lakes High School in Virginia Beach.
Tennessee wide receiver Justin Hunter is a possible first round pick. "It's always been my dream to hear my name called in the first round."
Syracuse safety Shamarko Thomas is expected to get drafted between the second and fourth round. "Whoever calls my name will get a hard worker and I will be ready."
Virginia Tech receiver Marcus Davis could go between the second and sixth round. "It doesn't matter, If I get called sooner than expected, I may change my disposition."
Hearing his name called in the draft will be bittersweet for Thomas who lost both parents in 2010. The oldest of five children, he has assumed parental responsibility for his siblings. "My mom always said that if I work hard that one day I may be in the NFL so I am going to go really hard to make her proud," said Thomas.
While Hunter is expected to hear his name announced first, they all admit, this will be a moment they have dreamed of most of their adult life.
