It was just last weekend that former Cavaliers Chris Long, Branden Albert, and Tom Santi were at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis, looking to increase their stock for the upcoming draft. Well they aren't the only former 'Hoos looking to go pro.

On Thursday night, linebacker Jermaine Dias was in Huntington, West Virginia, working out in a mock combine to get ready to audition for NFL scouts. This past season, Dias was a key part of the 13th-ranked defense in the country. He started in twelve games and had 54 tackles. ESPN.com has Dias ranked as the 29th best inside linebacker.
