From WVU Pros:
Noel Devine hoping for NFL return
This year, one of Mountaineer fan’s all-time favorites returned — and nearly stole the show. Noel Devine has spent the past three seasons playing football in the CFL. For the last two, he has played with the Montreal Alouettes as a slotback. That position is a halfback/slot receiver hybrid position similar to the roles that NFL players like Darren Sproles and Tavon Austin play.
In his time playing for the Alouettes, Devine has become used to running routes as well as coming out of the backfield. He has also been one of the league’s top kick returners. He is hoping his experience and the way NFL offenses have subtly changed will allow him to fulfill his dream of playing on Sundays.
Because he is a free-agent, he can sign with a team anytime and doesn’t have to wait until the NFL Draft in May.
He came out an ran two blistering 40-yard dash times and put up 26 reps in the bench press (that would have ranked him #3 among RBs at the 2014 NFL Combine). He ran the 40 twice. Although times were unofficial, he ran anywhere from a 4.25 to a 4.30 both times. At this year’s combine, the only RB participant who could have kept up with him was Kent State’s Dri Archer.
Devine was electric in college, but went undrafted and is most infamously known at the pro-level for resigning from the Eagles as he was unhappy with the reps he was recieving in camp. With Mike Goodson's an unknown following his injury, the Jets might do well to take a look at Noel as a cheap option to mix things up on 3rd down.
