German Vollmer impressive at Houston Pro Day

The University of Houston held its pro day on Friday indoors on AstroTurf in front of representatives from 17 NFL teams. Twelve players took part in the workout, which included a huge breakfast for scouts at 7:30 a.m. with breakfast burritos and fruit in what was an overall great day and a great workout.

One name to keep in mind is OL Sebastian Vollmer (6-7 1/2, 312 pounds), who came to the Cougars from Dusseldorf, Germany. He was a European all-star in high school who took a redshirt year in 2004 and missed the entire 2006 season with a back injury. With his athletic ability and long arms, Vollmer is a guy that is worth targeting in the sixth or seventh round of the draft. He’s a player who could be a starter and solid player for years to come or a guy who could play for two years and never be heard from again.

Vollmer turned times of 5.13 and 5.16 in the 40-yard dash with a 36 1/2-inch vertical and a 9-foot, 3-inch broad jump. He had a 4.50 short shuttle and a 7.51 three-cone time, with 32 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press.

Here are other notables from Houston’s pro day:

DE/ILB Phillip Hunt (6-0 7/8, 244 pounds) had times of 4.75 and 4.76 in the 40, with an impressive 41 1/2-inch vertical and a 9-foot, 8-inch broad jump. He had a 4.22 short shuttle and a 6.91 three-cone time, with 14 reps on the bench. He took part in drills to show he could pass rush and drop into coverage.

OL SirVincent Rogers (6-3 5/8, 306 pounds) ran the 40 in times of 5.34 and 5.35 with a 29-inch vertical and an 8-foot, 7-inch broad jump. He had a 4.75 short shuttle and a 7.39 three-cone drill.
Nevada

On March 25, Nevada held its pro day at its home stadium on FieldTurf in front of representatives from 18 NFL teams. Ten players worked out during a pleasant day in Reno, Nev., with temperatures around 50 degrees and no wind.

OLB Josh Mauga (6-1 5/8, 246 pounds) was really impressive. He looked good in position drills and had times of 4.61 and 4.64 in the 40. He had a 32 1/2-inch vertical and an 8-foot, 10-inch broad jump. He had a 4.27 short shuttle and a 7.30 three-cone time, and his arms measured 33 1/2 inches. He took part in the pro day on March 25 and then had surgery on March 26 for a bulging disc that will keep him sidelined from workouts until June 1.

WR Marko Mitchell (6-4, 213 pounds) stood on most of his numbers from the combine, but turned in a 32 1/2-inch vertical and a 10-foot, 3-inch broad jump. His arms measured 34 3/4 inches.
