CHENEY - With so much invested in their players, NFL teams put draft hopefuls under the microscope. Given his tumultuous exit from Washington State, Marquess Wilson has had his own unique questions to answer.

Wilson, along with former WSU teammate Jeff Tuel, was a spectator at Eastern Washington's Pro Day Wednesday. Wilson and Tuel planned to work out with the Eags, until finding out about an NFL rule that prevents players from participating in a pro day at a lower level program.

The record-breaking receiver left the Cougars in November citing abuse, an allegation be later backed off of. When asked today if he had regrets or would have done anything differently, Wilson said "not really".

While Tuel and other former teammates will showcase their talents in front of NFL scouts at WSU's Pro Day Thursday, Wilson will be unable to do so. He did however take part in the NFL Combine, where he ran a 4.51 40-yard dash, and was pleased with his overall performance.

Wilson also got to talk to teams about his departure from WSU, in hopes of clearing up character issues that stemmed from the November incident.

The 2013 NFL Draft begins April 25th.
