He was one of 58 collegiate receivers selected to participate in the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, Indiana.
His performance was mediocre, as he finished 20th among wide receivers in the 40-yard dash and 26th in the three-cone drill. He attended Northern Illinois’ pro day on March 10, 2017, but opted to sit out his combine numbers and only participate in position drills. He played brilliantly and caught every pass in front of scouts and team representatives from 18 NFL teams. Although 13 other prospects attended the Huskies’ pro day, he was the chosen prospect. At the end of the pre-draft process, NFL pundits and scouts projected Golladay to be a fourth- or fifth-round pick. NFLDraftScout.com ranked him as the 21st best wide receiver in the draft.
