Here is a look at some pro days throughout the week: 2
* Portland State:
They worked out at a velocity center in Hillsboro, Oregon. They ran outdoors at the high school field next door on AstroTurf.
Fifteen teams showed up to watch eight players work out.
The two most notable players were LB Andy Schantz and CB Reginald Jones. Shantz (6-0 3/4, 234 pounds) ran a 4.71 and 4.75 in the 40, had a 34-inch vertical jump, a 9-foot, 8-inch broad jump, a 7.48 three-cone drill, a 4.34 short shuttle and did 19 bench press reps. Jones (5-11 3/4, 193 pounds) ran a 4.49 and 4.43 in the 40, had a 40-inch vertical, a 10-foot, 7-inch broad jump, a 4.42 short shuttle, a 6.95 three-cone drill and did 13 bench press reps.
* Abilene Christian:
Four players worked out indoors on AstroTurf at a local high school. Three receiver coaches, including Rams assistant Charlie Baggett, were present and 15 teams overall showed up.
WR Johnny Knox (5-11 3/4, 181 pounds) stood on his combine numbers for the workout drills, but looked great catching the ball in the position drills.
RB Bernard Scott (5-10 3/4, 195 pounds) did the long shuttle in 11.01 seconds and did position drills, he kept everything else from the combine.
Couldn’t go outside due to bad weather, so 12 different players worked out indoors. The scouts described the day as awesome and credited coach Rich Brooks.
As follows were the notable prospects:
DL Myron Pryor (6-1, 313 pounds) stood on all the combine numbers, except he did 24 bench reps.
DB Marcus McClinton (6-0 1/8, 204) ran a 4.50 and 4.49 in the 40, did no jumps, had a 4.30 short shuttle, a 6.79 three-cone drill and did 18 bench press lifts.
LB Johnny Williams (6-1 1/4, 236 pounds) ran a 4.79 and 4.74 in the 40, had a 35-inch vertical, a 9-foot, 8-inch broad jump, a 4.49 short shuttle, a 7.39 cone drill and 16 bench presses. He’s a clone of former teammate Wesley Woodyard, who went undrafted last year.
Coach Brooks’ sleeper — David Jones, DB (5-9 3/8, 194 pounds) ran a 4.45 and 4.50 in the 40, had a 35 1/2-inch vertical jump, had a 4.42 short shuttle, a 7.11 three-cone drill and put up 14 bench press reps.
Ten teams were on hand to watch eight players run indoors on AstroTurf.
As follows were the notable prospects:
LB Mike Rivera (6-2, 245 pounds) ran a 4.63 and 4.66 in the 40, had a 38 1/2-inch vertical, a 9-foot, 10-inch broad jump, a 4.08 short shuttle, a 6.67 three-cone drill and 14 bench press reps.
LB James Holt (6-1 7/8, 223 pounds) ran a 4.72 and 4.73 in the 40, had a 32-inch vertical jump, a 9-foot, 5-inch broad jump, a 4.12 short shuttle, a 6.81 three-cone drill and did 17 lifts in the bench press.
LB Joe Mortensen (6-0 1/4, 240 pounds) ran a 4.71, 4.72 and 4.69 in the 40, had a 32-inch vertical jump, a 9-foot, 4-inch broad jump, a 4.25 short shuttle, a 6.96 three-cone drill and had 23 bench press reps.
Unfortunate occurrence at Texas Tech Pro Day
A moment of sadness overshadowed Texas Tech’s pro day. OT Rylan Reed started out the workout exceptionally well, measuring in at 6-foot-5 & ½, 309 pounds. He then had 41 bench press reps — a tally that would have put him No. 1 among all athletes at the NFL Scouting Combine last month. That is when Reed’s day took a turn for the worse. On his first 40-yard dash, he suffered a knee injury and had to be taken to the hospital.
Here’s hoping Reed recovers quickly.
On to the rest of the prospects:
OL Luis Vasquez (6-5, 325 pounds) ran 5.22 twice in the 40, had a 30 ½-inch vertical jump, an 8-foot, 7-inch broad jump, a 4.94 in the short shuttle, a 7.66 three-cone drill and stood on his bench press reps from the combine. He performed well in the position drills.
DE Brandon Williams (6-3, 254 pounds) ran a 4.80 and 4.81 in the 40, had a 33 ½-inch vertical jump, a 9-foot, 10-inch broad jump, 18 bench press reps and kept the rest of his numbers from the combine.
S Darcel McBath (6-0 5/8, 200 pounds) ran a 4.53 and 4.54 in the 40, had a 10-foot broad jump and 17 lifts.
QB Graham Harrell (6-2, 3/8) — ran a 4.95 in the 40, but struggled somewhat in the position drills.
Keep an eye on Boston College LB Toll
One of the most interesting prospects at Boston College’s pro day Thursday was LB Brian Toll.
At 6-0 1/4 and 228 pounds, Toll probably doesn’t have the size to play linebacker at the pro level, but he is a good athlete. He worked out at both safety and fullback and is the kind of player who belongs on the field. He just has to find the right position. He ran a 4.65 and 4.67 in the 40, had a 37 1/2-inch vertical jump, a 10-foot broad jump, a 4.45 short shuttle, a 7.03 three-cone drill and 15 bench press reps at 225 pounds.
He and the rest of the prospects ran on the game field under a bubble. Twenty teams were there, including three defensive Line coaches and Jets assistant GM Scott Cohen. Ten players worked out from Boston College and 25 players worked out from Boston-area schools.
Here are the notable prospects:
DT B.J. Raji (6-1 1/4, 330 pounds), who kept all of his numbers from the NFL combine, did positional drills.
DT Ron Brace (6-2 3/4, 331 pounds) ran 5.55 and 5.51 in the 40 and did positional workouts, but kept everything else from the combine.
LB Kevin Akins (6-2, 219 pounds) ran 4.76 and 4.73 in the 40 and kept everything else from the combine. He was worked out as a safety.
TE Ryan Purvis (6-3 3/4, 254 pounds) ran 4.95 twice in the 40, had a 4.61 short shuttle, a 7.25 three-cone drill, a 29-inch vertical, an 8-7 broad jump and put up 19 lifts.
LB Robert Francois (6-2 1/4, 244 pounds) ran 4.61 and 4.59 in the 40, had a 35 1/2-inch vertical, a 9-10 broad jump, a 4.34 in the short shuttle, a 7.11 three-cone drill and kept his bench press numbers from combine.
Nebraska-Omaha Pro Day features TE Miller
This workout was done indoors on FieldTurf. Twenty teams, including Jaguars tight ends coach Mike Tice, who orchestrated the workout, were present.
The one notable prospect was TE Zach Miller (6-4, 233 pounds). He ran a 4.53 and 4.54 in the 40, had a
37 ½-inch vertical jump, a 10-foot, 4-inch broad jump, a 4.22 short shuttle and a 7.06 three-cone drill. He was unable to lift because he tore a tendon in his hand, but he still excelled in the positional drills, catching the football. He reminds me of a Jay Novacek, Dallas Clark-type player.
Oregon’s Chung makes statement at pro day
Though he stood on most of his drill numbers from the combine, safety Patrick Chung was a standout in the position drills at the Oregon Pro Day.
The 5-foot-11 3/8, 209-pound prospect did do the short shuttle in 4.24 seconds and the three-cone drill in 7.11 seconds, but he really made his mark flashing his safety skills.
Seahawks defensive coordinator Casey Bradley ran the defensive drills and got to see Chung’s workout first hand. Seahawks offensive line coach Mike Solari operated the offensive drills. In all, 23 teams were in attendance, including six coaches, to watch the players work out on the game field.
Here were the other notable prospects:
C Max Unger (6-4 3/8, 306) kept everything from the combine and did positional drills.
OT Fenuki Tupou (6-5 1/4, 313) ran a 5.20 and 5.25 in the 40, had a 26-inch vertical, an 8-foot, 3-inch broad jump, a 4.85 short shuttle and kept his three-cone drill and bench press numbers from the combine.
DE/LB Nick Reed (6-1 3/8, 245) ran a 4.72 with the wind and a 4.84 against the wind in the 40, had a 31 1/2-inch vertical, a 9-foot broad jump, a 4.28 short shuttle, a 6.96 three-cone drill and 24 bench press reps.
RB Jeremiah Johnson (5-9, 213) ran a 4.57 and 4.61 in the 40, did a 4.26 short shuttle and had a 6.94 three-cone drill. He kept the rest of his numbers from the combine and did not run positional drills.
WR Jason Williams (6-4 3/8, 231) ran a 4.49 and 4.57 in the 40, had a 36 1/2-inch vertical, a 9-foot, 8-inch broad jump, a 4.34 short shuttle and a 6.94 three-cone drill.
DT Ra’Shon Harris (6-3 3/4, 297) ran a 4.88 and 5.04 in the 40, had a 27-inch vertical, a 4.66 short shuttle and kept the rest of his combine numbers.
Nebraska’s Steinkuhler shows speed and strength
Here’s Nebraska’s pro day vitals:
Twenty teams were represented to watch 16 prospects work out on FieldTurf. Carolina offensive line coach Dave Magazu and Miami offensive line coach Dave DeGuglielmo were in attendance.
Here are the notable prospects:
OL Lyndon Murtha (6-foot-7 1/4, 309) stood on his combine results and did positional drills.
OL Matt Slauson (6-5 3/8, 313) ran a 5.27 and 5.26 40, a 4.74 short shuttle, a 7.41 three-cone drill and had 23 lifts.
DT Ty Steinkuhler (6-3 7/8, 283) — the son of legendary Nebraska offensive lineman Dean Steinkuhler — ran a 4.92 and 4.89 in the 40, had a 31-inch vertical jump, a 9-foot, 3-inch broad jump, a 4.56 short shuttle, a 7.38 three-cone drill and 23 bench press reps.
RB Marlon Lucky (5-11 1/2, 214) ran a 4.53 and 4.56 in the 40 and didn’t do any other workout or position drills.
DB Armando Murillo (5-10 1/4, 192) ran a 4.65 and 4.66 in the 40, a 34 1/2-inch vertical jump, a 9-foot broad jump, a 4.38 short shuttle, a 7.16 three-cone drill and 14 lifts in the bench press. He also did positional drills.
WR Nate Swift (6-1 7/8, 200) ran a 4.65 and 4.63 in the 40, had a 9-foot, 6-inch broad jump, a 4.25 short shuttle, a 6.84 three-cone drill and did positional drills.
LB Cody Glenn (5-11 7/8, 237) ran a 4.67 and 4.68 in the 40, had a 38 1/2-inch vertical jump and a 9-foot, 7-inch broad jump. He did position drills.
DE Zach Potter (6-6 1/2, 276) ran a 4.93 and 4.95 in the 40, had a 9-foot, 2-inch broad jump, a 4.47 short shuttle, a 7.28 three-cone drill and kept his bench reps from the combine.
QB Joe Ganz (6-0, 202) ran a 4.98 and 4.94 in the 40, had a 29-inch vertical jump, a 9-foot, 1-inch broad jump, a 4.30 short shuttle, and a 7.09 three-cone drill.
The workout was well organized and the scouts were fed, which always makes them happy.
White draws 25 reps at West Virginia pro day
MORGANTOWN, W. Va. — West Virginia’s Pro Day has drawn representatives from 25 NFL teams, most to get a deeper evaluation of multi-faceted quarterback Pat White.
White did not participate in any of the strength or running drills, choosing to stand on his draft combine performances in those realms.
White said he would run pass routes on Thursday and do wide receiver drills upon request. There were no requests. Though no one said they were told directly, one scout said West Virginia Coach Bill Stewart quietly spread the word that White wasn’t going to go through wide out drills. In fact, the majority of the people who were in attendance to watch White left after he completed his throwing and weren’t there to see him do anything else but throw.
Terps’ Heyward-Bey puts on a show in positional drills
The headliner at Maryland’s pro day was Darrius Heyward-Bey (6-1 5/8, 212 pounds), who drew a bunch of receiver coaches, including the New York Jets’ Henry Ellard.
After running the fastest 40-yard dash at the combine (4.30 seconds), Heyward-Bey opted not to do workout drills again Wednesday. Instead, he focused his attention on the position drills and nailed that portion of the workout. He’s a smooth runner and is adept at catching the ball.
Heyward-Bey was one of 24 players who worked out in front of 50 scouts indoors on FieldTurf. (Heyward-Bey ranks fifth in Mike Mayock’s position rankings.)
These were the other notable prospects:
DB Kevin Barnes (6-0 3/8, 184) ran a 4.45 and 4.49 in the 40, had a 41-inch vertical jump and kept his combine numbers for everything else.
LB Moises Fokou (6-1 1/4, 232) had a 33-inch vertical and 21 bench-press reps and stood on the rest of his numbers from the combine.
TE Dan Grankowski (6-5 3/8, 254) kept all of his numbers from the combine.
OL Scott Burley (6-4 7/8, 315) ran a 5.48 and 5.45 in the 40, had a 31-inch vertical, an 8-foot broad jump, a 4.67 short shuttle and a 7.73 three-cone drill and had 19 lifts.
OL Jaimie Thomas (6-4 1/8, 329) didn’t run the 40 due to a strained quad, but he had a 28-inch vertical, an 8-foot broad jump, a 4.67 short shuttle, a 7.99 three-cone drill and 26 lifts.
Collie flashes skills at BYU Pro Day
Austin Collie, 24 years old because he went on a Mormon mission while in college, made his mark in positional drills at his workout. He apparently wowed the scouts with his catching ability. The 6-foot-1 1/8, 196-pound wideout ran a 4.53 and a 4.54 in the 40-yard dash and did the short shuttle in 4.07 seconds. He stood on everything else he did at the combine.
Bengals running backs coach Jim Anderson was there to work out in conjunction with RB Fui Vakapuna. He worked out, as all the players did, indoors on FieldTurf and could be more of a fullback in the NFL. He measured in at 5-11 ¼, 244 pounds and ran a 4.83 and a 4.84 in the 40. He had a 34-inch vertical and a 9-foot, 2-inch broad jump, 29 bench press reps, a 4.40 short shuttle and a 7.37 three-cone drill.
Other notable players:
OL Dallas Reynolds (6-4 3/8, 309) ran a 5.34 and 5.28 in the 40, had a 30-inch vertical jump, an 8-foot, 2-inch broad jump, a 5.03 short shuttle, a 7.59 three-cone drill and put up 20 bench presses.
OL Travis Bright (6-4 1/4, 317) did not run the 40 or do jumps. He had a 4.56 short shuttle, a 7.87 three-cone drill and 35 bench press reps.
OL Rey Feinga (6-4 1/4, 329) pulled his left hamstring and only lifted. He had 29 bench press reps.
Alabama’s Johnson goes from walk-on to elite prospect
While Andre Smith received all of the attention at the Crimson Tide’s pro day (and not necessarily for the right reasons), there were plenty of other notable prospects who worked out.
One of the best players was safety Rashad Johnson (5-foot-11, 200 pounds). He was not always considered to be among the best, however. He had to walk on at Alabama just to make the team. Johnson has now turned himself into a fairly high draft choice through hard work. This just goes to show there’s room for all walk-ons to become stars.
He did not do the workout drills Wednesday, standing on his numbers from the combine. He did perform all the positional workouts.
Another Alabama prospect making a positive impression is Antoine Caldwell. The 6-3, 310 pound center stood on most of his numbers from the combine, but looked exceptional in the positional drills.
QB John Parker Wilson (6-1 ¾, 215 pounds) also kept his workout drill numbers from the combine, but showed great arm strength and touch in his positional workout (this is prefaced by the fact Alabama offensive coordinator Jim McElwain ran the drill).
A pair of notable players did do the workout drills and did so in front of all 32 teams, including Packers GM Ted Thompson and Panthers GM Marty Hurney.
TE Nick Walker measured in at 6-4 7/8, 253 pounds. He had a 4.97 and 4.98 40, a 31-inch vertical, a 4.99 short shuttle, a 7.90 three-cone drill and 14 bench press reps.
TE Travis McCall checked in at 6-2, 276. He had a 5.13 and 5.10 in the 40, a 28-inch vertical, a 4.68 short shuttle, a 7.63 three-cone drill and 20 bench press reps.
Alabama’s Smith not necessarily doomed by poor times
While Alabama OT Andre Smith might not have put forth sensational workout-drill numbers, word out of Tuscaloosa is that he looked far better in his positional drills. The workout drills might not be totally indicative of Smith’s ability.
Weight issues and workout times are not always the best barometer of a prospect’s skill level. I’m reminded of former Pro Bowl lineman Nate Newton.
I signed Newton when I was with the Dallas Cowboys the afternoon after the USFL went under, and he weighed 295 pounds at the time (heavy for that day and age). Some of our coaches wondered how he would be able to perform at his size, but he wound up being one of the best players in the league at his position.
Not to say Smith will be the next Newton, but he should not automatically be dismissed because of his weight or disappointing workout-drill times — especially given his impressive college tape and solid performance in the positional drills.
That said, the initial impressions from Smith’s workout were not overly impressive. He came into his pro day hoping to post solid numbers and prove to scouts that he was in shape after showing up to the combine overweight and leaving Indianapolis unannounced without doing the drills.
Smith told NFL.com’s Steve Wyche heading into the pro day: “There’s so much I’m putting into March 11. They say don’t put all your eggs in one basket, but I’m doing that on this occasion because I feel like I need to give the best showing I can.”
Well, Smith’s workout times were unspectacular. He came in at 6-foot-4 ¼, 325 pounds and ran the 40-yard dash in 5.28 and 5.33 seconds. He had a 25-inch vertical, a 7-foot and 10-inch broad jump, a 7.88-second three-cone drill and 19 bench-press repetitions at 225 pounds. He did the short shuttle in 4.93 seconds.
To put Smith’s workout drills in perspective, he did not post a single number that would have placed him in the top performers at his position at the combine, and many of his numbers were not even close to the top 10 at his position at the combine.
Davis: Smith earns another look from pro day
We all went to Tuscaloosa, Alabama, today to see Andre Smith at his pro day workout.
There were other Alabama players involved. But, because Smith did not work out at the Scouting Combine; because he announced to everyone he had only been working out for a couple of weeks before Indy; because he just kind of left the next day after not doing the bench press at all and people didn’t know where he was … it kind of became a sideshow, which was unfortuante for him.
Everyone wanted to get a look. What had Smith been doing since that time?
He weighed in at 325, which wasn’t bad, because there had been reports in the past of him being north of 370 pounds. He bench pressed 225 pounds 19 times, which was OK since he has extremely long arms at almost 36 inches. So, that’s not bad, but it’s not great; he needs to get into the 20’s. The problem he really has is his physique. There’s no getting around it — he’s just not cut up. That doesn’t look good.
Smith’s 40 time was pedestrian, but I don’t think teams are really worried about a 40 time for a lineman. He didn’t run poorly. I was standing next to some scouts who liked the way that he ran. He showed some fluidity.
All in all, for those teams that had dropped Smith on their draft boards after the scouting combine, I’m not sure he did that much to change their minds today. But for those who liked him prior to Indianapolis and wanted to give him a second chance, I think he did enough to keep them coming back and checking his progress leading up to the draft.
Smith is a difficult projection, because it’s all about what each team is going to feel. I had Smith at No. 6 in my last mock draft, but that was with an asterisk because I wanted to see how he performed today. I’m not sure where I’ll rank him from here on out. But I saw enough today that I’d love to go back in a month or two to see him again.
At the beginning of this whole process, Smith had a chance to be the No. 1 tackle in the draft, bar none. Now I don’t think he has a chance to be the top tackle on the consensus board, but it doesn’t mean he still might not be the second or third tackle off the board if a team doesn’t like what he does between now and the draft.
As expected, there was mixed reaction on Smith today. Here’s an example.
“I was pleasantly surprised,” said one pro personnel director. “He did a little bit more than I expected. I came in fearing the worst. I came in fearing that he hadn’t done a whole lot. You can tell he has a long way to go, but you can tell he’s done a few things.”
“I’m telling you right now, no way,” said one scout. “He showed me all he needed to show me by leaving in Indy. I wouldn’t have anything to do with him.”
If you didn’t like Smith before because of his actions in Indy, I don’t know if he gave you a reason today to make you want to follow his progress. But if you liked him before, and you want to give him a chance, he probably did enough to make that happen.
Oklahoma State TE Pettigrew’s workout put on hold
Oklahoma State TE Brandon Pettigrew was nice enough to inform everyone that he would not work out today because of a pulled hamstring. He will set up a date with his agent to work out for teams in about two weeks.
The wind was so strong in Stillwater, Okla., that none of the players who did work out were able to do positional drills. They ran the workout drills indoors on a rubber track.
The most notable prospect who worked out was DB Jacob Lacey. He measured in at 5-foot-9 7/8, 177 pounds. He ran 4.50 and 4.45 seconds in the 40-yard dash and had a 41-inch vertical, a 9-foot and 11-inch broad jump, a 4.25-second short shuttle, a 7.51-second three-cone drill and 11 bench-press repetitions.
Coaches out to see Western Michigan’s Delmas
There were 21 NFL teams represented at Tuesday’s pro day. With S Louis Delmas as the main attraction, there were defensive backfield coaches from Detroit, Jacksonville, Carolina and New Orleans. The Lions had DB coach Tim Walton and assist DB coach Deron Roberts on hand. The 15 prospects ran indoors on FieldTurf and did the vertical and long jumps in the weight room.
Delmas ran position drills as well as a 60-yard shuttle. Otherwise, he stood on his numbers from the combine.
Londen Fryar, a 5-foot-10 3/4, 195-pound CB, ran the 40 in 4.59 and 4.67 seconds, had a 35 1/2-inch vertical jump, 10-foot long jump, 4.28 short shuttle, 6.81 three-cone drill and 17 reps in the bench press.
Jamarko Simmons, a 6-1 3/4, 231-pound WR, ran the 40 in 4.50 and 4.53 seconds, had a 33-inch vertical jump, 9-foot, 11-inch long jump, 4.39 short shuttle, 7.09 three-cone drill, and 19 reps in the bench press.
Central Washington’s contingent of two players at the combine doubled the number of players from the University of Miami (Fla.) at the combine — and they doubled the number of NFL scouts that came to see them at pro day. Due to heavy snow, there was just one NFL scout on hand — the one who happened to get to town the night before! Prospects ran on an indoor rubber track with spikes (fast), and did drills on the basketball court.
Mike Reilly, a 6-3, 212-pound QB, ran the 40 in 4.74 and 4.75, had a 32 ½-inch vertical jump, and 9-foot long jump.
Jared Bronson, a 6-3 7/8, 254-pound TE, stood on his 40 times at the combine, had a 33-inch vertical jump, 9-foot, 8-inch long jump, and 21 reps in the bench press.
Oklahoma’s pro day features several standouts
The big story to come out of Norman, Okla., on Tuesday was Nic Harris’ continued slow times in the 40-yard dash. The 6-foot-2 and 7/8-inch safety followed up a slow time in the 40 at last month’s NFL Scouting Combine with another slow time at the University of Oklahoma’s pro day. He ran it twice — both in 4.83 seconds.
Working in Harris’ favor is that he has an amazing backpedal — it seems as if he can run the 40 backwards as fast as he can run it forward. But as Mike Mayock pointed out on NFL Network’s Path to the Draft show today, Harris might be better suited as a weakside linebacker in the NFL. He had a 4.23-second short-shuttle run and a 7.0-second three-cone drill, more in line with linebacker times. Harris did positional drills as a safety, not a linebacker.
Four offensive linemen who have NFL potential worked out in Norman. Phil Loadholt (6-7 7/8, 332 pounds), Duke Robinson (6-5 1/4, 330 pounds), Jon Cooper (6-2 1/8, 290 pounds) and Brandon Walker (6-2 7/8, 306 pounds) drew three offensive line coaches to the pro day — Detroit’s Pat Morris, Buffalo’s Sean Kugler and Miami’s Dave DeGuglielmo. Vikings head coach Brad Childress and vice president of player personnel Rick Spielman also were there.
Loadholt looked very good in his positional drills. His workout-drill numbers were as follows: 5.45 seconds in the 40-yard dash twice, a 28 1/2-inch vertical jump, a 8-9 broad jump, a 4.77-second short shuttle, a 8.14-second three-cone drill and 26 bench-press repetitions (though it should be taken into account that it is harder for a tall player with long arms to throw up the bar).
Robinson stood on his 40 times from the combine, posted a 31 1/2-inch vertical, a 8-3 broad jump and a 5.0-second short shuttle, and put up 20 bench-press reps.
Cooper, who is a very good player despite his slender frame (for a center), ran a 5.0 flat and 5.03 in the 40, had a 31 1/2-inch vertical jump, an 8-9 broad jump, a 4.50-second short shuttle and a 7.43-second three-cone drill, and posted 32 bench-press lifts.
Walker had a 34 1/2-inch vertical jump and a 9-2 broad jump, and he ran a 5.18-second 40. He also had a 4.88-second short shuttle and an 8.20-second three-cone drill, and he stood on his bench-press reps from the combine.
WR Joaquin Iglesias stood on his combine numbers, but he looked very good catching the ball in positional drills.
I would like to commend Oklahoma director of sports enhancement Jerry Schmidt (known as coach Smitty) for his excellent job in organizing this highly efficient pro day. Scouts love to come to Oklahoma because the whole coaching staff is there, the facilities are great and Schmidt runs the event like clockwork. In fact, he timed things so well that the barbecue that was ordered for scouts came 30 minutes after the workout was done.
Still, there’s no doubt that every scout left five pounds heavier.
